Author Jaye Beeler – Speaking & tasting from her new book “Tasting & Touring Michigan’s Home Grown Food”.
Join us on Friday, June 8th, 2012 from 11:00am – 2:00pm for a reception to meet chef and author Jaye Beeler, whose book of recipes will inspire you to visit farmers markets to create something unique and fresh all summer. Jaye has taken a culinary road trip in order to compile recipes for her book.
“Tasting and Touring Michigan’s Homegrown Food” embraces the surging interest in eating local food for our physical and economic health, and for tasting the pleasure of simple, delicious, beautiful food. This culinary tour reaches north from the cranberry bogs and thimbleberry jam of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to the southeastern inner city garden plots of Detroit. Michigan grows homespun food from every corner of the state to its great Great Lakes. Seasoned journalist Jaye Beeler and award winning photographer Dianne Carroll Burdick team up to take you there through their visual and descriptive look at the essence of agricultural Michigan.
Jaye will be speaking to us about this trip, sharing samples from the recipe book and signing copies of the newly released book in the store.
