Join Me at Oceanside Farmer’s Market and Salsafest

November 21st, 2008 · 1 Comment

I make two appearances locally tomorrow  – in Lake Worth and in Greenacres — come and join me at either or both. I’d love to meet you! Read more!

Oceanside Farmer’s Market stage

Saturday morning will find me at the Lake Worth Oceanside Farmer’s Market  — I’ll be kicking off their demo-stage, making a market-fresh salad and bruschetta. (Yes, there are free tastings!) The market’s full of terrific ingredients, so it’s going to be an easy job to find the foods, and whip this up. That’s at 10 a.m., approximately, and it will be over fairly quickly — come by and say hello!

Oceanside Farmer’s Market

  • A1A at Lake Avenue, Lake Worth Beach (in parking lot behind John G’s)

Off to Salsafest

At noon, I’ll be in Greenacres at this year’s Salsafest, sponsored by Palms West Chamber of Commerce where I’ll be judging the salsa contests between the mayors, the fire chiefs, and the students at the Florida Culinary Institute. Some of those kids are amazing – it’s always a great way to pick up cooking tips, too — and since the weather’s so great, the family-themed fest is sure to draw huge crowds. Admission is free; there are many activities and musical acts planned.
