GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. THE WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY. -Christina
I’m excited to announce that due to Leah’s smart thinking, Alana Chernila voice of Eating from the Ground Up and author of The Homemade Pantry, is coming back to the area for a book buying-n-signing at the Delmar Farmers Market THIS SATURDAY, JULY 7th, 9-1pm. We will be sharing a tent with Alana with samples from her book, some helpful tips for quick refrigerator pickles (a gateway project to waterbath canning!) and information on our FSC Academy classes!
If you have a chance, come out & meet her! I can’t tell you how wonderful Alana is–she is instantly warm & engaging and speaks from the heart w/ conviction and grace. You will instantly think that you’ve met your long lost kitchen-soulmate. I know I did.
Alana’s book is the book to own if you (or someone you know) are interested in delving into a DIY food project, a kid’s snack or ‘from scratch’ entree. Her writing style is comforting and chock full of knowledge with a special section, when needed, called “Tense Moments”, where Alana walks you, the reader, through parts of a recipe that might make you give up. Genius…and so so helpful and honest. Not glamorous. HONEST.
If there was one book that embodies what we at FSC are attempting to do for our community & in our own kitchens, it would be The Homemade Pantry. Its my most favorite book on my bookshelf.
