Good Food Seminar at Howland Library July 21

Local chef and author advises on how to shop

Local chef Jennifer Clair will present a workshop on Good Food: What to Eat and Where to Shop on Tuesday, July 21, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Howland Public Library. While there is plenty to learn about food preparation from a good cooking class, there is still a lot of food education that needs to happen before someone heads to the kitchen. First, there’s grocery shopping to buy the ingredients needed.

This workshop will include a comprehensive packet of information and recipes to take home. The event is free and no registration is required. This is an Escape the Ordinary 2015 Adult Summer Reading Program special event.

Clair is the founder of Home Cooking New York, a boutique cooking school located in both Manhattan and Beacon. She is the former recipe editor for The Wall Street Journal and food editor at Martha Stewart Living. She is the recipient of a full James Beard Foundation scholarship and began her culinary career assisting the renowned cookbook author and food historian Joan Nathan. Clair is the author of Gourmet Cooking on a Budget. More information on Home Cooking New York can be found on the website
