Her cooking style is intuitive and inspired from a deep knowledge of food, flavors, markets, farming and time in the kitchen. Home chefs will discover this is more than a cookbook—it is an incredible resource of botanical, historical and horticultural information.

Please join us for soft drinks, wine, cheese, and refreshments, as we prepare for another wonderful World Book Night event. All local givers are invited in to meet other givers as we share in the good feeling of something shared and important. RSVP Sam Barry at firstname.lastname@example.org.About World Book Night Each year, 30 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. Book Passage has signed up to be community host locations for the volunteer book givers. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out copies of a particular title in their community. On World Book Night—April 23rd—we join together to give books to those who don’t regularly read and/or people who don’t normally have access to printed books, for reasons of means or access.
