CCFM Benefit & Cookbook Release:

On Thursday, March 12, the Crescent City Farmers Market community will host a book signing like no other. CCFM Cooks! is generously sponsored by TABASCO®. Local chefs, farmers and market shoppers will recreate recipes they contributed to the Crescent City Farmers Market Cookbook, and autograph copies with Poppy Tooker. Locavore guru, Alice Waters of Chez Panisse is the evenings honorary chair.

The 7-9 p.m. event is $50 per person and will take place in the courtyard of Tulane University Square (formerly Uptown Square). The Patron Party begins at 6 p.m. and features farm fresh cocktails and conversation with Alice Waters, special chef offerings and a cookbook for $250 per party of two. For $500 per party of two, one of Alice’s signed cookbooks is added. For tickets, call 504.861.4485 or purchase them at the Welcome Tent of either our Tuesday or Saturday market. Tickets available online! The event is co-chaired by Margaret Saer Beer and Leah Whann.

Farm fresh cocktails by our friends with Tales of the Cocktail, locally brewed Abita Beer and wine courtesy of our neighbor Hopper’s Wine and Spirits will be poured at the event.  Chefs, farmers and market shoppers are creating recipes from the cookbook at the event.
