Cookbook author and podcaster Kathy Gunst---Tuesday, November 21 at 7pm

     The Friends of the Dover Public Library are pleased to present renowned chef and author Kathy Gunst for a talk on Tuesday, November 21 at 7pm about the slow food movement, cooking with locally- grown ingredients, and her preference for fresh and simple components in her dishes. Kathy says, “I understand the art of simplicity and how the very best meal really relies on ingredients. And the best ingredients you can find are the ones closest to home.” 

     A resident of South Berwick, Maine, Kathy Gunst is the Resident Chef on NPR’s “Here and Now” podcast. She won the 2016 IACP Award for Best Culinary Audio and is also a James Beard Journalism award winner in the Home Cooking category. Kathy has written numerous articles for newspapers and periodicals, among them The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Newsweek, Yankee Magazine, and Eating Well.

       “Soup Swap: Comforting Recipes to Make and Share” (Chronicle Books, 2016) is Kathy Gunst’s newest cookbook. It grew out of a monthly gathering of her friends and neighbors who come together for winter suppers and good company. Each guest brings a pot of soup to share with the group. The host provides a side dish or two, along with bread and a simple dessert. Leftovers are divvied up and everyone gets a sample of each soup. Whether taken to a party or savored at home, this delicious collection of soup, stew, and chowder recipes will be sure to satisfy all year long.
       This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Library at 603-516-6050. Library hours are Monday-Wednesday 9am-8:30pm, Thursday-Friday 9am-5:30pm, Saturdays 9am-5pm and Sundays 1pm-5pm.
