Side Dishes: Preparing for the Vermont Fresh Network forum

Published June 30, 2010 at 9:50 a.m.

Each year, the Vermont Fresh Network invites a food celebrity to speak at its annual forum hosted by Shelburne Farms. This year, they decided to mix things up by inviting two famous guest speakers: Judith Jones, a Knopf cookbook editor and author, and New York Times writer Marian Burros. Both live in Vermont part time.

“They both have interesting perspectives to share,” says VFN executive director Meghan Sheradin. “These are the ladies we want to hang out with and talk to.”

In addition to the speakers, attendees at the August 8 event can look forward to a pair of seminars — one on understanding charcuterie with Healthy Living butcher Frank Pace, and one on cooking from the garden.

There will also be a slew of cheesemakers, a book signing and food from 24 restaurants, including Tourterelle, American Flatbread, The Inn at Shelburne Farms and Café Provence.
