Georgeanne Brennan, author of the CapRadio Reads November selection, My Culinary Adventure: Food And Fetes of Provence, is a chef, a writer, a delightful person and a James Beard Award Winner.  The James Beard Award is an annual award given for excellence in cuisine, culinary writing and culinary education in the United States.  She has been a finalist several times, but her book Food and Flavors of Haute Provence was the winner. She is back, this time with another book, both recipe book and memoir and will be our guest, Tuesday, November 15, at 6pm in our Community Room.  Come hungry, because there will be lovely food and wine, as well as so much talk of food and France you will be instantly transported.  Please join us.

I had the opportunity to meet Georgeanne Brennan in 2007, when her book A Pig In Provence first came out.  Reading that book, and a stay in her charming 16th century home in a very small town in Provence made me a fan for life.  I am so happy to, once again, host Georgeanne for a book event.  This time, we at CapRadio Reads are honored to present the inaugural event for My Culinary Adventure: Foods and Fetes of Provence.  We will serve our usual lovely appetizers, some delicious wines and most important, a wonderful conversation with Georgeanne and our own Donna Apidone.  They will talk more about Georgeanne's time in Provence, her cooking and recipes and her family.  You will be able to smell the lavender in the air by the time this evening is over, so don't miss a minute of it.  Get your tickets now for an evening with Georgeanne Brennan, Tuesday, November 15 at 6 in the evening at Capital Public Radio.  I'll see you there.

Nope. It's not eye of newt and toe of frog. But food — and its connection to dead loved ones — does play a starring role in the major Pagan holiday Samhain, which coincides with Halloween.
