Tasty Reads, a book group for readers who like to cook, will focus on Life in a Northern Town: Cooking, Eating, and Other Adventures along Lake Superior by Mary Dougherty at their Tuesday, March 13 meeting at noon in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room. Having moved from St. Paul, Minnesota to Bayfield, Wisconsin, Mary Dougherty has found a way to incorporate locally grown food into family favorite dishes. She cooks pho with beef bones from a farm in Mellen and chowder with potatoes and corn from Ashland. She even uses locally prepared curry powder in her recipes. Organized seasonally, Dougherty explores cooking through recipes, stories and photographs as part of a community experience. Share your thoughts about the book and a recipe inspired by it.
