People can get a peek into the kitchen of Cleveland’s favorite chefs at Mentor Library
MENTOR, Ohio… Want to know what Michael Symon cooks in his own kitchen for his friends and family? Or what Bar Cleveland chef Zachary Bruell makes for dessert?
People can find out that and more when they meet Maria Isabella on Monday, Nov. 4 at the Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch. Isabella interviewed and compiled more than 100 recipes from 35 of the area’s most successful and famous chefs to write her book, “In the Kitchen with Cleveland’s Favorite Chefs.”
Isabella considers herself a self-professed, wannabe foodie. “Albeit, not the snobby kind,” she said.
Her talk at the library will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Main Branch’s James R. Garfield Room.
Isabella will discuss her book and share her experiences with some of the chefs she wrote about. Then she will demonstrate two simple appetizer recipes that people can enjoy.
She will also take questions from the audience.
Amanda Densmore, the manager of MPL’s adult reference department, said she was excited to welcome Isabella to the library.
“I'm sure she'll have some fun stories to dish about Cleveland's favorite chefs, and it will be great to try some simple appetizers,” Densmore said.
A book sale and signing will follow Isabella’s presentation.
Isabella’s talk is part of the Monday University series, which brings new guest speakers to the library each month to entertain and educate lifelong learners.
The program is free and open to the public. However, people are asked to register for the talk beforehand. They can do so by calling Mentor Public Library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 215 or by visiting www.mentorpl.org.
