"Dishing Up Vermont" Cookbook Signing

"In the wooded forest..."

As you may recall, one of my New Year's resolutions was to cook more (now that I have a spacious kitchen and actual pots and pans in Boston). I had every intention of following through on this (and even went as far as writing Post-it notes to myself taped to my fridge!), but as life goes, work got busy and takeout from the local pizza joint just seemed so...easy after a long day crunching numbers. Sigh!

Just as I was about to grab that B.Good burger last week, I checked my Blackberry and who did I get an email from? Why it was food writer / stylist Tracey Medeiros inviting me to checkout her book signing event for her new book "Dishing Up Vermont" at Murray's Cheese Shop New York!  Her cookbook profiles Vermont farmers, chefs and food producers who practice sustainability and applauds its contributors for their dedication to producing fresh, healthy, pesticide-free products. Every ticket sold buys a copy of the book, a glass of wine, a taste of one of Tracey's recipes, and a chance to speak with Tracey in-person. The event is open to the public - see below for the details!

My favorite dish to make? Probably Rizogalo, a sweet Greek comfort food I learned to make while visiting Athens. It is easy, yummy and evokes wonderful memories, too. If you want to check out my recipe, you can see it here:

My current favorite dish to make is roasted root veggies: sweet potatoes, white potatoes, carrots and onions, peeled and cubed, tossed with olive oil and cajun seasoning, roasted at 450 until done (depends on how big you cube them, usually less than 30 minutes for me).
