Anyone interested in meeting up?

Post  Wyldflower on 7/1/2010, 6:09 pm

I just heard that a talk on gardening and preserving will be given by
Eugenia Bone at Denver Botanical Gardens.
I have one of her cookbooks (At Mesa's Edge), and will probably pick up her latest, "Well Preserved"

Here's the program:


Eugenia Bone, food writer

Denver Botanic Gardens at York Street

Mitchell Hall

Thursday, July 29, 7 p.m.

For Eugenia Bone, the kitchen is an ecosystem with dishes in all stages of life: a bounty of mushrooms or artichokes might, simultaneously, be going into preserves, the freezer, soup stock and dinner. An avid canner, Bone writes not only about how to preserve foods but also how to merge food preservation into a daily kitchen routine. Thrifty prepping and cooking can get you ahead of the dinner curve in ways that are delicious, conscientious and uncomplicated. Eugenia lives in an apartment in New York City and spends summers on a ranch in Crawford, Colo. She puts up foods in both places, regardless of space or equipment issues – neither of which have much to do with successful cooking.

Eugenia Bone has written hundreds of articles on food and canning for magazines and newspapers nationwide, including The New York Times, Gourmet, Saveur and Food & Wine. Her first book, “At Mesa's Edge,” was nominated for a Colorado Book Award. Her current book is “Well-Preserved: Recipes and Techniques for Putting Up Small Batches of Seasonal Foods” (Potter 2009). Eugenia writes a blog for The Denver Post called "Well-Preserved Colorado." She is currently at work on a book about fungi called “Mycophilia” (Rodale 2011).

5:15 p.m.:Tour of seasonal edible plants in the Gardens ($5 additional, limited to 25 people)

6 p.m.: Social hour and tasting, hosted by Slow Food Denver (Mitchell Hall)

7 p.m.: Program and book signing (Mitchell Hall)

Cost: Pre-registration for individual Bonfils-Stanton programs: $20 member, $25 non-member. Entire series: $110 member, $140 non-member. Day of the event: $30, if space available.
I'm planning to head up to Denver for this event, even though it's a workday (Thurs, July 29, starting at 5:15 - leaving the Springs around 3:00). I was thinking that if anyone else from the Springs area is interested, we could carpool, and maybe meet up with some of our northern friends, as well.

Wish I lived out that! But I'm going to check out that book.

I wish you could, too, Megan!

I just registered and bought my ticket. There is no space left for the tour, so I only registered for the lecture that starts at 7. I'll probably still want to go early and enjoy the gardens for the afternoon.

Here's the page to register for the event if you're interested.

Just wondering if anyone else in the area decided to go to this program at Denver Botanic Gardens tomorrow.

I've got the afternoon off from work, and should be at the Gardens by around 3 or so ... I've never been, so I'm looking forward to seeing everything before the program starts at 6:00 with a tasting (YUM!)
