Author to speak at RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon
RiverWinds welcomes back Marika Blossfeldt on Saturday, April 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. to talk about her book Essential Nourishment, Recipes From My Estonian Farm.
Essential Nourishment won third place at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2011 in the healthy cookbook category. In 2012 it won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award in Paris, the gold medal in the Living Now Book Awards (U.S.) and was a finalist for the Book of the Year Awards (U.S.). It is an integrated cookbook and nutrition guide fusing an appreciation for the sensual pleasures of natural foods with a sensible approach to nourishment.
Drawing from her knowledge of natural foods and her experience in conducting private and group health-coaching programs and wellness retreats, Blossfeldt has put together a concise and useful nutrition guide, weaving together food, art and the joy of living a healthy and fulfilling life with gentle, easy-to-implement suggestions for balanced eating, abundant energy and genuine well-being.
RiverWinds Gallery, 172 Main St. in Beacon, is open Wednesday-Monday noon-6 p.m. (noon-9 p.m. on Second Saturdays). For more information, visit riverwindsgallery.com or call 845-838-2880.
