We love all of the colorful, versatile, and downright delicious vegetables of spring & summer and we have just the right person to help make the most of this beautiful bounty. Farmer, food blogger, and newly minted cookbook author Andrea Bemis joins us at the Hall for Book Fete on June 11th 12-2pm. In her cookbook, Dishing Up the Dirt, Andrea shares what she knows about breathing new life into vegetable recipes.

Andrea and her husband run Tumbleweed Farm in Hood River County, where they grow organic vegetables. Andrea’s experience in the field and in the kitchen offers simple but delicious ways to cook them while in season. Her warmth and enthusiasm really shines through in her recipes and her cookbook showcases the best of her flavourful, nourishing recipes. Andrea will be sharing her tips and tricks for Maximizing Your CSA Haul. Our kitchen will also be preparing some of the recipes for you to try along with some of our favorite wine and bubbles.

Bring your copy of Dishing Up the Dirt for Andrea to sign or you can purchase one at Book Fete. Join us for a friendly afternoon of food and fun!

Food Book Fete : Full Moon Suppers at Saltwater Farm

It’s warming up outside and we are fired up about all the good things the weather brings! Book Fete is back and we’re honored to welcome chef and cooking school founder Annemarie Ahearn to Elder Hall.

Annemarie founded Salt Water Farm Cooking School in Lincolnville, Maine in 2009. In just a short time, the farm drew guests from far and wide while being featured The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine and other publications. The easy nature of Annemarie’s instruction, along with the beauty of Maine’s landscape and the bounty of local farms and fisheries, inspire so many to think of entertaining at home in a whole new way.  In her new cookbook, Full Moon Suppers at Salt Water Farm, Annemarie provides a month-by-month guide to how she creates thoughtful, seasonal, beautifully prepared meals for a crowd. Her full moon suppers are a big draw and showcases how anyone can host a memorable dinner with simplicity and grace.
