Discussion and Demo With Cookbook Author Susie Middleton




Cookbook author Susie Middleton will discuss her latest cookbook ("Fast, Fresh & Green") with a demonstration - Top Ten Tool & Ingredient Tips for Making Fast, Tasty Vegetable Side Dishes - to follow. This will be a demo using Middleton's favorite ingredients (fresh herbs, lemons, garlic, ginger, Parmigianno Regianno, etc.) and her favorite hand tools (microplane zester, julienne peeler, ceramic knife, etc.) to show folks how to add flavor to and get the most out of weeknight vegetable dishes. Tips include peeling fresh ginger with a spoon, making zucchini "ribbons" with a handheld julienne peeler, adding flavor with sweet/sour combos like balsamic vinegar and honey, and more. Susie will bring a tasting sample of her Caramelized Roasted Tomato "Sandwiches" with mozzarella and basil.

Middleton's cookbook has been named one of the top cookbooks of the summer by both NPR and The Washington Post. "Fast, Fresh & Green" is a collection of more than 90 vegetable recipes, organized by nine great techniques for cooking vegetables. Eight of those technique s- from quick-roasting and quick-braising to stir-frying and even no-cooking - are perfect for weeknights. The ninth technique - baking gratins - is a slower-but-worth-it idea for weekends. The recipes, which use more than 50 vegetables, are designed to be side dishes, though many can move to the center of the plate.
