Amelia Saltsman, the beloved Los Angeles-based food writer, teacher, television host, and author of the award-winning book, The Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Cookbook: Seasonal Foods, Simple Recipes, and Stories from the Market and Farm will be making a special local appearance at the Certified Farmers’ Markets the weekend of Saturday, February 19th (at the Palm Springs Market), and Sunday, February 20th (at the La Quinta Market). Ms. Saltsman will be demonstrating recipes from her book, using seasonal ingredients from the Markets, and signing copies of The Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Cookbook: Seasonal Foods, Simple Recipes, and Stories from the Market and Farm. This is a rare and not-to-be-missed opportunity for food lovers, home cooks, chefs, and anyone else who is interested in food and cooking.
Saltsman, who is also the host-producer of the Cable Television Show, Fresh from the Farmers’ Market, is passionate about getting everyone into the kitchen to discover the joys of fresh, seasonal foods. She loves sharing ways to shop in season for both common and uncommon ingredients that can be used in simple recipes that are full of bright flavors. A Southern California Native, Amelia Saltsman serves on the State of California’s Certified Farmers’ Market Advisory Board, and is a frequent guest on KCRW’s Good Food with Evan Kleiman.
