This past weekend we were lucky enough to have local food writer, Sarah Waldman, in for a cookbook signing. The shop was filled with her fans who drove in from across New England to meet the woman behind the colorful cookbook, "Feeding a Family".
Sarah brought samples of her easy to make, (and even easier to take down), oven-baked falafel pitas, with garden radishes, cucumber, and pea shoots. It's a recipe from her book, and helped us see first hand why she's grown such a huge fanbase. Sarah’s book takes us through 4 seasons of meals to feed and nourish the whole family. "Feeding a Family" is the culinary bible that folks are swearing by. The book is healthy, beautiful, and approachable, much like Sarah Waldman herself.
She describes her kids eating habits in depth: the older son is very utilitarian and eats for fuel; her younger son is more curious, "a possible emerging foodie". Her face lights up while she talks about her little ones and we pick up on a deeper purpose of the book. It's as if learning about her kids individual food choices gives us a glimpse of their sweet personalities. And so it seems, the characters in our lives are as colorful, and lovely as the meals we cook. Both should be savored, and celebrated.
Thank you to everyone who made that day so special. And congratulations to Sarah and her team!
