Sit Down with Southern Cooks at Darien Library on November 1

Darien Library and Barrett Bookstore are thrilled to present a lively virtual conversation with three Southern cooks: Carrie Morey, Cheryl Day, and Stacey Little.

Learn about the authors’ current work, including Carrie’s biscuit brand, Hot Little Biscuit; Cheryl’s upcoming solo cookbook, Cheryl Day’s Treasury of Southern Baking; and Stacey’s blog, The Southern Bite, which has been adapted into a cookbook of the same title. The authors will also share their favorite classic family recipes, from no-fuss suppers and tried and true Southern baked goods. A question and answer period will follow the discussion.

This virtual event will take place on Monday, November 1 at 7 p.m. Register on Darien Library’s website at www.darienlibrary.org/event/5319.
