Friends Spring Meeting: Chef and Author Jeff Weaver and the Fast Food Culture

Posted May 08, 2013


Meet acclaimed chef and author of "Locavore Adventures" Jim Weaver during the Friends Spring Meeting. Thursday, May 9 • 7 p.m.

America's fast food culture reflects not only what we eat—foods that are processed and packaged for convenience—but also how we eat—munching as we multitask and not really tasting the super-sized meals we ingest. In Locavore Adventures, acclaimed New Jersey chef and restaurateur Jim Weaver shares his personal story of how he came to solve this problem—building a local slow food culture that is ecologically responsible and also yields delicious results. More than forty recipes throughout the book, from Hot Smoked Brook Trout with Asparagus Puree and Pickled Cippollini Onions to Zuppa di Mozzarella, will inspire readers to be creative in their own kitchens. Books available for sale and signing. All are welcome to this FREE event. Sponsoredby the Friends of the Library.

JIM WEAVER is the chef/owner of Tre Piani Restaurant in Princeton, New Jersey and the founder of Slow Food Central New Jersey.
