Sandra Garson, a journalist, farmers market advocate who is passionate about food and Maine will be on hand and offering the Second Edition of her popular cookbook How to Fix a Leek & Other Food from Your Farmers' Market for $20 as a fundraiser for the Freight Shed.
During the Full Moon Dinner on July 22nd, Sandra will be available to sign and personalize the copies and will slip in a copy of a knock out new birthday cake recipe. We will also take orders for the cookbook through the month of July. A copy of it will be on view at the Freight Shed along with a sign up list.
Garson’s food essays have been published in Downeast Magazine, Yankee, Radcliffe Culinary Times, the New Fillmore, and Tricycle, the Buddhist quarterly. Garson is an adviser to the Himalayan Pantry in New York, former owner of Tastewrights Catering in Brunswick and sold baked goods at the Brunswick Farmers' Market during the 1985 season.
In How to Fix a Leek, Sandra Garson answers the most common questions posed to Maine farmers at their markets: What is this? How long will you have it? Can I store it? What will I do with it? This easy-to-read, comprehensive guide includes uses for the marvels the farmers produce and carefully chosen, quick step-by-step recipes-taking full advantage of local flavor-so your meals are as memorable as Maine.
