What a fun evening is in store on Friday September 12th at 7:00 p.m.!
Ersilia Moreno, who you might remember from the Bethel Community Market in Bethel on Fridays, and owner of Olive Oil of the World, will be at Byrd’s Books with her wonderful olive oils and vinegars. She will discuss how to cook with olive oil for better health….and flavor! We will have oils and foods to sample, and sample recipes to share.
In Ersilia’s words: “I am a true purveyor and personally source every product I sell and do not use 3rd parties. I visit the farms and olive mills and establish a personal relationship with each of my suppliers. My suppliers are true artisans and I only do business with those who want to proudly display their name on the label….My goal is to have 1 extra virgin olive oil from each the 26+ countries that produce it , 1 from each of the 16 olive oil producing regions of Italy, and 1 from each of the 3 states in the USA. And while I am at it, I want to share with you nature’s perfect partner for olive oil : vinegar. So as they would say among the 26+ countries that produce this food of the God’s : benvenuti, ahlan wa salan, bienvenidos, bienvenue, galos orisate, bruchim habayim, hos geldiniz, dobro došli, bem-vindo, khosh aamadid, welcome! I promise you an amazing experience…”
To celebrate our love of food and cooking, Byrd’s Books will host a a cookbook blowout. A large selection of beautiful cookbooks will be available for discounted sale during this event only.
