William J. O’Hern will be signing Spring Trout and Strawberry Pancakes and Nancy Best will be signing Learning to Cook Adirondack and Learning to Cook Adirondack Over an Open Fire.
Spring Trout & Strawberry Pancakes is not your ordinary cookbook but rather a well-rounded storybook along with a healthy dose of culinary adventure sprinkled throughout like little gems for the reader to look forward to.
Each chapter highlights a charming look back at an Adirondack site, or camp, and the people associated with it, from the 1890s to recent times, and ends with appealing recipes. The unique format features tried-and-true recipes for breads, pastries, soups, casseroles, stews, goulash, practical main meals, desserts, beverages, picnic menus, camping trips, and holiday gatherings. Not unlike an ongoing "whodunit" mystery, in each chapter someone bakes or cooks something that fits into the story and then that recipe is given at the end.
Join fourth generation Adirondacker, Nancy Pulling Best, as she recalls the friends and family who taught her to cook and bake.
