Library hosts eating locally program

Derry News

---- — DERRY — Derry Public Library will host “Feasting from our Local Farms: The Benefits of Eating Locally and Seasonally” on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 6:15 p.m.

The modern movement of eating locally grown and raised seasonal fare has its roots deeply planted in our historic kitchens. Now, “eating locally” and “eating seasonally” have become fashionable terms.

Join Creative Feast chef Liz Barbour as she explores the modern journey back to the local farm with a discussion about the benefits of buying local and eating within the season.

Enjoy a cooking demonstration of recipes featuring locally harvested seasonal ingredients and sample the distinct flavors of your local harvest. Farm fresh ingredients never tasted so good. Learn two recipes and try samples, available for all to taste.

Knives and knife sharpeners will be available for purchase.

Barbour has been cooking professionally in the Boston area since 1992 and started Liz Barbour’s Creative Feast in 2004.

She built her cooking career in a variety of Boston’s catering and restaurant settings. After starting her family, Barbour re-entered the food world as an instructor, sharing her professional experiences and knowledge with her students and clients through cooking demonstration classes, in-home cooking parties, and boutique-style private catering.

Her cooking demonstrations and recipes have been featured on New Hampshire Chronicle and her recipes are featured in various publications.

She also offers catering and cooking courses from her Creative Feast business. Because handouts and food samples will be offered at this program, registration is required.

Participation is limited to the first 35 people who register.

Stop by Derry Public Library at 64 East Broadway or call 432-6140.
