from Literature with chef Liz Barbour
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

easy cooking technique tips and you are on your way to creating great meals you
can prepare at home.
