Sandi Earle: My 30-Year Love Affair with Food in Vermont

Event date: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 6:30pm

Join Sandi Earle for a talk on her new book, My 30-Year Love Affair with Food in Vermont.  Sandi will be giving the first 20 attendees who purchase a book at the event a free four pack of the Shotgun Wedding Chocolate Truffles, which is  a recipe from the book! (One per customer. Some exclusions apply.)

ABOUT THE BOOKMy 30-Year Love Affair with Food in Vermont: Queen City Brewery Edition is the result of a two-year "research study," done with many hours of Queen City beer sampling, cooking experiments and recipe creation. It is also Sandi Earle's first in a planned series of cookbooks. After hours of long conversations about how the beers are made--while listening to Frank Zappa and eating endless bowls of pretzels--with Paul Hale, Managing Partner, Brewmaster and one of the co-founders of Queen City Brewery, Sandi decided to put this collection of recipes into a book and do some good with it. She asked Paul and Ellen Zeman what local charities and nonprofit organizations are near and dear to their hearts. Without hesitation, Ellen said the Vermont Family Network (VFN). VFN is an organization that empowers and supports families that have children born with special needs. They work to assist them in obtaining the necessary resources the need to help their children live healthy lives and reach their potential. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to benefit the VFN.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Sandi Earle left Western New York in 1984, to follow her heart and passion for the food and people of Vermont. Author of My 30-Year Love Affair With Food in Vermont, she shares her collection of recipes created using the beer from Queen City Brewery in Burlington, Vermont. She is a professional baker and chef, and is currently the Executive Chef at Champlain College, and a Sodexo District Chef in Vermont and Northern New York. A 2014 alumni of Champlain College with a BA in Business Management, she pursued her passion in writing and creating her business plan Sandi Earleā€™s Food Matters, a company in which to make food matter in her community. Sandi has shared parts of her journey cooking in Vermont, in the first of three books written to benefit a local community action organization. The first cookbook helped to raise over $4,000.00 for the Vermont Family Network. Two more cookbooks are currently being written, One Hundred Recipes From Vermont Cooks and Chefs and Celebrations, which will also benefit two more organizations in Vermont.
