Feasts from Literature with chef Liz Barbour

Monday, August 22nd


The Newbury Vets Hall

The Newbury Public Library and Newbury Beautification Committee have partnered to bring you Feasts from Literature with chef Liz Barbour!  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 are tasting? Join The Creative Feast’s Liz Barbour for a delicious exploration of her favorite recipes discovered hidden in novels she has read.

Following Liz’s discussion will be a cooking demonstration and sampling of two delicious recipes. Add in Liz's easy cooking technique tips and you are on your way to creating great meals you can prepare at home.

Enjoy a cooking demonstration of two recipes and samples for all to taste. Recipes and paper goods included.

Sign-up is required and space is limited to 35 participants.
