Friends of Kiama Library is celebrating its 25th anniversary in a delicious way, by hosting a dinner with celebrated restaurateur, author and food educator Stephanie Alexander, who will be launching locally her new book The Cook’s Apprentice.
Stephanie, as she is known by cooks throughout Australia, has received multiple honours for her service to the food and wine industry, and as food educator and author.
More recently she is best known for work through her Kitchen Garden Foundation. It provides a program of vegetable gardening and cooking experience for 8 to 12 year old children and is now in operation in some 300 schools Australia-wide, including in our region.
Modelled on her iconic Cook’s Companion, The Cook’s Apprentice is aimed at the younger cook just starting out. It features 56 ingredient chapters and over 300 ‘achievable’ recipes.
Details: Sunday 14 October, The Sebel Harbourside Kiama, 5.30 for 6.00pm. Tickets at $50 (main course and a glass of wine) available through Trybooking (link from library.kiama.nsw.gov.au) or in person at the Library
