Andrea Chesman: The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How (Rutland)

Event date: 
Saturday, December 12, 2015 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Join Andrea Chesman for a book signing, demo, and delicious samples from her new book, The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How : Field-to-Table Cooking Skills. Plus, Andrea is bringing samples of sourdough starter for attendees who purchase a book!  (While supplies last.)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Andrea Chesman has written more than 20 cookbooks, including Storey’s The Pickled Pantry, Recipes from the Root Cellar, Serving Up the Harvest, and Mom’s Best Crowd-Pleasers. She has also written a number of books on grilling, including the James Beard Award nominee The Vegetarian Grill. She has contributed to many publications including the New York Times, Cooking Light, Vegetarian Times, Fine Cooking, and many regional and local newspapers. She teaches and does cooking demonstrations and classes at fairs, festivals, book events, and garden shows across the United States. She lives in Ripton, Vermont.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Growing vegetables and raising livestock is only the beginning of a successful homestead -- that fresh food goes to waste unless you can properly prepare, cook, and preserve it. Andrea Chesman shows you how to bridge the gap between field and table, covering everything from curing meats and making sausage to canning fruits and vegetables, milling flour, working with sourdough, baking no-knead breads, making braises and stews that can be adapted to different cuts of meat, rendering lard and tallow, pickling, making butter and cheese, making yogurt, blanching vegetables for the freezer, making jams and jellies, drying produce, and much more. You’ll learn all the techniques you need to get the most from homegrown foods, along with dozens of simple and delicious recipes, most of which can be adapted to use whatever you have available.


DATE:  Saturday, December 12th from 1-3pm
