United Way of Greater Mercer County Women’s Leadership Council will host a book signing with Leeann Lavin, author of “The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook
I am so honored to co-host a Homegrown book signing, talk and reading on Monday, December 17th with the United Way of Greater Mercer County.
Princeton, New Jersey is a Currier & Ives hamlet this time of year, especially, so the event will be extra seasonally festive. I’m driving with Mother, and my dearest garden design client, Maria—who by the way, made the introductions to effervescent and irrepressible Judy from United Way that made all this possible.
Undoubtedly, Maria is magic. I acknowledge her fairy godmother/fée marraine power and her support as a mentor and garden muse in The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook. I so respect her input and wise counsel on all matters of taste. She is peerless in her own homegrown cooking. She is a fabulous cook with Italian heritage and truth be told – her meatball mojo is a culinary potion, as well as many other homegrown, delicious, family recipes.
This will be a good day. And the last of the Homegrown book events until after the New Year. So we’ll make it spectacular!
Here’s the news from United Way:
United Way of Greater Mercer County Women’s Leadership Council will host a book signing with Leeann Lavin, author of “The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook,” on Monday, kicking off with holiday afternoon tea at 3 p.m. at Nassau Inn, 10 Palmer Square. The event will be raising money for an early reading readiness program.
Guests will enjoy a traditional tea party while listening to Lavin talk about how the movement to eat what is grown locally is gaining momentum and how to incorporate this philosophy into our lives. To register, visit uwgmc.org/womens-leadership or contact (609) 637-4902. The cost is $30 per lady.
There have been a number of media news stories heralding this benefit—here’s one: http://www.nj.com/mercer/index.ssf/2012/12/princeton_restaurant_hosts_boo.html
Hope to see you in Princeton tomorrow. If you are not local to Princeton and want to get a copy of the Hampton & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook, please contact me.
Cheers to the first of the Holiday Homegrown events.
