Please join us at Pleasant Green Farms for our third “Sunday at the Farm” event, August 13 from 4-6 p.m. You won’t want to miss this afternoon with acclaimed cookbook author and teacher, Nancie McDermott, who will join us to discuss her newest book, ‘Fruit’ (part of UNC Press’s popular “Savor the South” series).
‘Fruit’ collects a dozen of the South’s bountiful locally-sourced fruits in a cook’s basket of fifty-four luscious dishes, savory and sweet. From refreshing Strawberry Shrub to decadent Persimmon Pudding, McDermott serves up incredibly tasty recipes while taking readers on a journey into the South’s diverse culinary traditions.
McDermott, a North Carolina native, is the author of 13 cookbooks and a popular teacher and speaker. We’re delighted to welcome her to Pleasant Green Farms, where she’ll serve treats from ‘Fruit’ and let us in on the stories behind her exquisite recipes. Books will be available for purchase, thanks to Hillsborough’s Purple Crow Books.
The event is free, but registration is required (so we can be sure to have enough food and drink on hand).
