Lauren K. Stein: Fresh Made Simple (Saturday, December 19 at 11am)
Join Lauren K. Stein, author of Fresh Made Simple, for a book signing and meet and greet. If you could use a chocolate pick-me-up, you'll be in luck! Lauren will bring samples of black and white bark, one of the recipes in this beautiful new book.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lauren K. Stein, author of Fresh Made Simple, is a former journalist for Reuters who has written for the Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Boston Business Journal, and Eat Boutique, a website that sources small-batch food products and offers recipes and food columns. Stein's experiences in the kitchen preparing food for her very curious and very hungry toddler inspired this collection of recipes.
ABOUT THE BOOK: An engaging collection of illustrated recipes for beginning to advanced cooks in a beautiful hardcover gift package. With just a few fresh ingredients and appealing visual interpretations of each recipe, anyone can quickly put together these satisfying snacks and light meals. Each of the 75 recipes in Fresh Made Simple is a charming full-page illustration showing, rather than telling, how to make the dish described. Each meal or snack begins with one delicious ingredient, and the cook builds around that to make a simple yet elegant creation. An avocado, seasoned with lime and salt, elevates a fried egg on toast; fresh-picked blueberries and an ear of corn add sweetness and texture to standard pancakes. From pineapple cilantro salsa and asparagus apple salad to a kale egg scramble, tortilla soup, and crostini, these simple recipes celebrate the unbeatable flavors of fresh ingredients.
DATE: Saturday, December 19th from 11am-1pm
