Cookbook Signing with Jessica Theroux
Every year, Seattle Public Utilities trims evergreen trees, holly trees and other boughs around the city to keep electrical wires safe from storms. SPU brings a wonderful selection of these cuttings to the U-District Farmers Market on Dec 4, so shoppers and the public can take home boughs and wreaths and swags to decorate for the holidays - all completely free, and helping put these cuttings to good use. Come grab some greenery at the market, plus enjoy some free hot apple cider, cookies and donuts courtesy of market vendors and other local vendors.
American chef Jessica Theroux spent a year traveling throughout Italy, cooking and talking with Italian grandmothers. The result is a charming and authentic collection of recipes, techniques, anecdotes, and photographs that celebrate the rustic and sustainable culinary traditions of Italy's most experienced home cooks.
Cooking with Italian Grandmothers features the histories and menus of twelve grandmothers, each of whom welcomed Ms. Theroux into her kitchen and pantry and shared both favorite dishes and personal wisdoms. From the dramatic winter shores of Ustica to the blooming hills of Tuscany in the spring, readers will journey though Italy's most diverse regions and seasons to discover the country's most delectable dishes, from the traditional to the unexpected, and meet the storied women who make them.
Jessican will have copies of her new cookbook at the U-District Farmers Market, and will be available for signing and for answering questions about her culinary expertise.
