Learn “go-to” recipes at Desmond-Fish

The Desmond-Fish Library’s new Food Forum series continues at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18, with more “go-to” dinner recipes from Culinary Institute of America graduate Rebecca Weber.

“Our goal is to have a fun time and send you home with some tried-and-true recipes,” Weber says. “If we can sprinkle in a little more knowledge about food issues or cooking techniques, we’re glad to do this. We’d also like to learn what your needs are and gear the group toward areas that interest those who attend.”

Future forum topics may include health and nutrition, meatless options, new cuisines, creations for entertaining and learning to work with specific ingredients. Because the best recipes tend to be made over and over again, participants are invited to share favorites.

The February meeting will begin with a sampling of Mediterranean chicken and curried sautéed chicken with coconut milk and rice. Weber will demonstrate how to roast a whole fish with accompaniments such as chimichurri and herbed butter. A tasting will follow. Finally, participants will work together to make a fun salad.

Call 845-424-3020 or email [email protected] to register. A $10 donation is suggested to cover expenses. The Desmond-Fish Library is located at 472 Route 403 (at the corner of 9D) in Garrison.
