More information from Facebook event below:
Part cookbook, part travelogue, part photo essay, The Bordeaux Kitchen–available for sale after this event–is an ancestral French cookbook (with wine pairings and an in-depth wine chapter) that celebrates the rich foods and wines of France as well as the “disappearing” culinary arts of butchery, tying roasts, filleting fish, curing bacon, rendering fats, and preparing organ meats. The book comprises a journey through the southwest of France, a chapter on the wines of France, and over 180 recipes from around France, along with my own search for better health for myself and my family. As wine is central to the French lifestyle of communing with friends and family, I have made French wine, especially those from the French Southwest figure prominently in the book, alongside recipes and my own photographs. The book focuses particularly on sustainably-raised animals and organically-grown foods and wines, the tradition of eating in-season, and the need for a shift in our “quick and easy” paradigm of convenient, low-fat, and refined “foods” over nutrient-dense, homemade, satisfying meals of meats, fat, fish, and fresh vegetables, as traditionally eaten in the French Southwest.
Tania Teschke is a writer and photographer passionate about French food and wine, who holds a diploma in wine science and tasting from the University of Bordeaux.
The session will be moderated by Cynthia Coutu, founder of Delectabulles, a Champagne Networking Club for Women. She teaches masterclasses about sparking wines from around the world, organizes trips and tasting events. She is certified level 3 from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust.
An informal wine and cheese tasting will follow this event in conjunction with the book sale– Bordeaux wine will be provided by CIVB/Bordeaux Wines.
This event and other weeknight programs at the Library are free and open to the public (except as noted) thanks to support from the Annenberg Foundation, our members, and those who attend programs. There is a suggested donation of ten euros for non-members. Doors open at 19h00
