If you’re looking for fresh ideas on incorporating locally grown, seasonal produce into your home menu, you don’t want to miss author Jane Snow’s demonstration and book-signing at the Seville Farm Market on Saturday, June 26.
A former newspaper food editor whose work has appeared nationwide, Snow now publishes her own weekly newsletter. She has won two James Beard Awards for food writing and has been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize. Snow lives in Akron with her husband, Tony, a sushi chef and owner of Sushi Katsu, an Akron sushi bar.
And, if that’s not enough, she once made a Jello mold of her face.
Walk through the Seville Farm Market with Snow as she selects from available fruits and vegetables, baked goods, jams, jellies, honey, maple syrup and more, to create a dish on the spot using fresh ingredients.
After her cooking demonstration, Snow will sign copies of her new cookbook, “Jane Snow Cooks: Spirited Recipes and Stories” (University of Akron Press, 2009).
Sponsored by the Seville Lions Club, the market takes place 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday through October, rain or shine. Vendors set up in Maria Stanhope Park and on West Main Street, which is closed to traffic during the market. Adjacent parking is available at Seville United Methodist Church, located at 74 W. Main St., through its High Street entrance.
Skilled local vendors offer in-season produce, jams and jellies, honey and maple syrup, breads and pies, cookies and crafts, homemade dog treats and toys, annuals and perennials, hand-made furniture, knife-sharpening services, and more.
