Book Signing with Julia Turshen, Now & Again | Benefit for YMCA Farm Project

  • 2:00pm
  • 37b north front street, kingston, ny 12401

THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Join us from 2pm to 4pm for a meet & greet with local culinary leader Julia Turshen for her latest book ‘Now & Again | Go-To Recipes, Inspired Menus + Endless Ideas for Reinventing Leftovers.” Julia will be signing books and baking her Hikers Cookies for us all to taste!  We met Julia this summer when we were all preparing courses at the YMCA Farm Project Gala Dinner, so in perfect circular harmony we’ll be donating 10% of all store sales during the event to the YMCA Farm Project.

Please join us for a lovely afternoon, meet a local foodie hero and support the excellent work that the team at the YMCA Farm Project are doing to engage local teens with hands-on agricultural experience.

ABOUT THE BOOK
In Now & Again, the follow-up to what Real Simple called “an inspiring addition to any kitchen bookshelf,” more than 125 delicious and doable recipes and 20 creative menu ideas help cooks of any skill level to gather friends and family around the table to share a meal (or many!) together. This cookbook comes to life with Julia’s funny and encouraging voice and is brimming with good stuff, including:

• can’t-get-enough-of-it recipes
• inspiring menus for social gatherings, holidays and more
• helpful timelines for flawlessly throwing a party
• oh-so-helpful “It’s Me Again” recipes, which show how to use leftovers in new and delicious ways
• tips on how to be smartly thrifty with food choices

Now & Again will change the way we gather, eat, and think about leftovers, and, like the name suggests, you’ll find yourself reaching for its pages time and time again
