Leftover food news: Cupcake contest, cookbook for good causes

Looking to gorge for a good cause? Show up at Cupp’s first annual cupcake-eating contest on Sunday, July 15, at 1 p.m. at the Winooski Farmers Market, just across the street from the bakery. The event benefits Camp Ta-Kum-Ta, a charity that serves kids dealing with cancer and their families. Check the Cupp’s Facebook page for more information.


An uncommon cookbook project gets a local spotlight in Stowe next week. New York author June Feiss Hersh will be at the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe on July 19 at 7:30 p.m. to sign and discuss her book Recipes Remembered: A Celebration of Survival, a collection of dishes from Holocaust survivors. Local amateur cooks and professional pastry chefs, including Patricia Hammer of Trattoria La Festa, will serve desserts prepared from the recipes.

The dishes in the book aren’t limited to sweets. Its 170 international recipes include family favorites that have been adapted by chefs such as Mark Bittman, Daniel Boulud and Jonathan Waxman. The bittersweet event will be full of stories of triumph — and food.
