Hey Friends!  I have some exciting news to share!  I will be doing live cooking demos at local farmers’ markets in September, October and November.  If you live in the Lehigh Valley area, come on out this week and say “Hi!” and support our local farmers!


Here is my September schedule:


I will be preparing recipes using food from the local vendors at the markets.  You can try a free sample of the food, grab a copy of the recipe, and shop for fresh ingredients!
