Author Presentation & Signing with Chris Smith

August 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Thursday, August 22nd, 2019 | 7 PM – 9 PM | The Book Tavern

We have a real treat coming up on Thursday, August 22–a presentation and signing with okra enthusiast Chris Smith! Chris’s fascination with okra led him on a journey to study the history and cultivation of the plant in his book, The Whole Okra: A Seed to Stem Celebration.

“The Whole Okra is foremost a foodie’s book, but Smith also provides practical tips and techniques for home and market gardeners. He gives directions for saving seed for replanting, for a breeding project, or for a stockpile of seed for making okra oil, okra flour, okra tempeh, and more. Smith has grown over 75 varieties of okra, and he describes the nuanced differences in flavor, texture, and color; the best-tasting varieties; and his personal favorites. Smith’s wry humor and seed-to-stem enthusiasm for his subject infuse every chapter with just the right mix of fabulous recipes and culinary tips, unique projects, and fun facts about this vagabond vegetable with enormous potential.”

If you like okra this is a can’t miss! If you don’t like okra, this is the perfect opportunity to give it another chance.
