Off to North Carolina With Garlic Talk and Fiddle!

"The Garlic Talk" at the library was a success - the video of it is posted here and be sure to search YouTube for the full length editions! I'm scheduling additional talks here and then elsewhere throughout the summer so if you think a program on garlic would be well received in your community, let me know.

I headed back up to Rochester, NY through the Carolina's and fiddled with folks along the way, as I am known to do. Here's a precious something I found in North Carolina so I joined these folks to jam in the Union Alley Coffeehouse in Washington, NC - they meet every Saturday morning. It was FUN! Maybe I'll stop in again on the way back down south. See you there? :o)

My Amazon Author Page

An amazing Amazon discovery today - Amazon provides resources to help authors promote their work so here is my new Amazon author page!

It features my upcoming "Garlic Talk" at the Dunedin Florida Public Library on March 27th at 7PM!

The "Garlic Talk" is an informative evening that is sure to fill the senses. We'll smell garlic, taste garlic, see parts of a 1980's garlic movie entitled "Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers", zip through a slide set of my amazing summer of 2011 garlic adventure, and you'll also get to sit through me performing "The Garlic Waltz" on my fiddle along with Rutthy Taubb!

Order the book ahead of time on Amazon to learn more about the song - everything you need to know about garlic is in the lyrics in one mighty fine tune. Bring your book with you and I'll sign it, of course, but be sure to bone up on the words to the "The Garlic Waltz" so you can help me out!

JoAnn's Cleveland Hummus

JoAnn’s Cleveland Hummus

This hummus recipe was not included in the book "A Miscellany of Garlic". So many favorites, so little page space. I hated the thought of leaving this garlicky hummus recipe out so, not to be left out at all, here it is for you as a giveaway promotion for the book itself. Save it to your phone and you'll always have it handy.

Homemade hummus is a real crowd pleaser and is perfect for parties. It stores well if covered tightly and kept in the refrigerator so you can easily make a few batches ahead of time.

Parslied Rack of Lamb

Parslied Rack of Lamb
from the Silver Palate Good Times Cookbook

I just created and served the parslied rack of lamb for my girlfriends on Saturday night - it was out of this WORLD. Nothing else in the meal mattered but these delicious and delicate lamb morsels.

RAMBLE: Everything in this cookbook is FANTASTIC. It is an oldie and better than goodie - it is one of my most cherished cookbooks, one of the good living basics. Thanks to Google books, you can actually browse and search the cookbook online to see if it's one you'd like to own. The Macaroni Quattro Fromaggi is unforgettable and has won instant admirers of all ages!
