And there’s a delicious program for adults, too:
Tuesday, July 16, 2013 – 6:00-7:00pm – I Scream Sandwich!
Local culinary writer and consultant Jennie Schacht will discuss her new book I Scream Sandwich!. Schacht redefines this hugely popular sweet treat and shows us how it can easily be the star of a dinner party, child’s birthday bash, family picnic, or just a lazy summer afternoon. She will have her books to sell and sign, including Farmer’s Market Desserts and The Wine Lover’s Dessert Cookbook. There will be a period for questions and answers, then we will partake of ice cream sandwiches.
