Book Signing & Tasting

This Saturday, April 6th from 11:00- 2:00 we have a special book signing and tasting by the famed local duo Kate Winslow and Guy Ambrosino. You might recall their beautiful book Coming Home to Sicily, which was met with great success at the market book signing a few years back. Now they are returning with their newest creation, Onions Etcetera.  Reviewed by the acclaimed food writer Ruth Reichl: “In this gorgeous book, onions finally get their star turn. The recipes will surprise and seduce you; you will want to cook every single one.” – Ruth Reichl

A quote from the book to further tempt you over and purchase one for yourself, not to mention a great Mothers Day Gift.

“Whether you delight in the hunt for scapes, your favorite heirloom cipollini, the spice of raw garlic, or the sweetness of caramelized onions, you’ve come to the right place. This book is for us, the Allium lovers – those of us who can’t imagine cooking dinner without our onions. (After all, if there’s an onion in the house, we know we can make something good!) In these pages, we’ll explore the wonderful versatility of the humble onion, coaxing out flavors familiar and unknown. From classics and family favorites to more obscure recipes, you’ll find 130 onion-centric dishes including Za’atar Onion Petals with Beets and Labneh, Pearl Onion Tarte Tatin, Appalachian Chimichurri, Curried Onion Fritters with Mint Raita, Grilled Delicata Squash with Shallot Agrodolce, Cheese and Allium Toasties, Eggplant Salad with Black Garlic Tahini Dressing, Scallion Sesame Pancakes, Grilled Fish with Charred Garlic Scape Relish, and so much more.”
