Event Type: Food/Cookery Program
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 6/9/2014
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
Description:
 Remember that food pyramid from health class? Come get acquainted with grains, with chef Adam Formento. From Fresh baked Bread and handmade pasta to homemade granola bars and cereals. Appreciate one of mankind's oldest friends, wheat, and learn about what the term "gluten" really means. And examine what some other cultures around the world do differently than we do with "the bottom of the pyramid".

As long as Formento can remember, food has been the top priority in his family. After spending sixteen years in restaurant kitchens across the country, Formento has returned to his roots in Cape May County to raise his own family. Having worked in very progressive atmospheres in California and North Carolina, he has been involved firsthand in today's “going green” movement. He hopes to help motivate healthy, organic, sustainable, and locally-based food practices. Though not at all a vegetarian, he believes strongly in a balanced approach to cooking, and finding the most delicious way possible in which to do it.

  • Many of the programs offered through the Cape May County Library require registration prior to the start of the program. Programs that require registration will be marked on the calendar (online and print), in press releases, and on promotional posters. To ensure fairness, patrons who fail to appear for three (3) programs/classes will not be eligible for first time registration for a period of six months. Rather, these patrons will automatically be placed on the waiting list. If an opening is available, the said patron will be notified that he or she can attend. If a patron cannot attend a program/class, it is his or her responsibility to alert the library via its online registration or telephone at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the start of the program/class. If proper notice of cancellation is given, then the patron will not be moved out of good standing.
