Dirt Candy Coming to Boston (well, near Boston)

.

Medford is Boston, right? I mean, it’s a suburb and you can take the T from Boston to Medford, so it’s basically the same city. I think? Geographical quibbling aside, I’m going to be in Medford this coming weekend, Saturday December 1st, from 3 – 5pm. Sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Public Library and the Tufts Culinary Society, I’m going to be talking about how to cook vegetables, signing cookbooks, and there’s going to be a ton of food. I’m bringing Portobello Mousse with Truffle Toast, and a bunch of local restaurants are donating dishes. This is an event to benefit the FOTMPL and TCS and while the event itself is free there will be all kinds of ways to give them your money while you’re there.

.

See, Medford’s pretty!

.

So come on up, hear me talk about how to keep your vegetables from turning into sad, gray piles of failure when you cook them at home, buy a cookbook, get it signed, and eat some food. There are far, far worse ways to spend your Saturday afternoon, and it’s for a great cause (said cause being libraries). The Boston Globe even picked this as one of the five things you should do in Boston this week. See! I told you this was in Boston!

.

“Vegetables! I am coming for you!”

.

The event is being called “Vegetables: Friend or Foe?” and it will take place at Tufts’s Sophia Gordon Hall (15 Talbot Avenue) and you can find all the details here.
