Feasting from Literature with Liz Barbour
July 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Think about all the times you have been engrossed in the pages of a novel. You join the characters and become a part of the scene, the setting and all that is taking place. You can be lost in your novel for hours when the author inserts a snack, a meal, or a culinary description that starts your mouth watering. Wouldn’t you love to know what the characters taste? Join The Creative Feast’s Liz Barbour for a delicious exploration of her favorite recipes discovered hidden in novels she has read. Enjoy a cooking demonstration of 2 recipes and samples for all to taste.
This special literary-inspired cooking demonstration will take place in the Marc Jacobs Reading Room on Wednesday, July 24 at 3:00 pm. To register for the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
