Emily Paster, author, The Joys of Jewish Preserving
Saturday, July 15, 2017, 10:30 am - 11:15 am
Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, followed by a book signing hosted by our friends at Book Passage.
Emily Paster is the author of two cookbooks, 2016’s Food Swap: Specialty Recipes for Bartering, Sharing & Giving and the upcoming The Joys of Jewish Preserving. A graduate of Princeton University and the University of Michigan Law School, Emily redirected her career from law to food after the birth of her second child. She is the writer and photographer behind the website West of the Loop, which has been called “a family food blog to savor.” As the founder of the Chicago Food Swap, a community event where handmade foods are bartered and exchanged, Emily is a leader in the national food swap movement. Emily teaches and speaks on garden-to-table cooking, canning and fermentation throughout the country.
All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
