Southport, CT - Pequot Library invites the public to tune into a Zoom Meet with Elisa and Robert Bildner, authors of The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook: 125 Home-Grown Recipes from the New England Hills, with Chef Brian Alberg.
The Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts are famous for their unique culture, from scenic views to artistic and literary attractions. But in addition to the region’s classic landmarks, the Berkshires also boast an impressive number of family-run farms. Together with local restaurants, these farms add another feature to Berkshires culture: heartwarming and homegrown food.
Telling the story of family-run agriculture through the language of food, The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook offers 125 recipes to recall the magic of the Berkshire region for readers far and wide. Sweet Corn Pancakes, Carrot Soup with Sage and Mint, Confetti Vegetable and Goat Cheese Lasagna, and more celebrate the lush landscape of the western New England area. Complete with farm profiles and vibrant photographs, The Berkshires Farm Table Cookbook paints a vivid portrait of the relationship between the earth and what we eat.
Elisa Spungen Bildner is a professionally trained chef and a former CEO of a perishable food manufacturing company. Robert Bildner is a former lawyer who grew up in a food family and went on to found and run several food companies that help local farmers bring their products to market. Both Elisa and Rob are foodies by profession and have lived in the Berkshires for the last 25 years.
