CANCELLED-An Afternoon with Healdsburg Author, Lia Huber

October 14 @ 3:00 pm

$20

Please join us for a reading and discussion of Nourished: A Memoir of Food, Faith, and Enduring Love (with Recipes).

Lia Huber is a long-time Slow Food enthusiast and past board member of Sonoma County North. She enjoyed 5 minutes of fame when the Press Democrat featured her backyard Bodega Red potatoes during the time the board members were doing the first grow-out.

She has received acclaim for Nourished: A Memoir of Food, Faith, and Enduring Love (with Recipes). The New York Times calls Nourished, “[A] charming foodie’s travel memoir…[Huber] is endearing, engaging company and the reader roots for her success.”

It was a Buzzfeed Best Book of 2017: “Lia Huber’s Nourished is…deeply heartfelt, exploring her journey toward using food to nourish physically, emotionally, and spiritually.”

Lia will read selections from Nourished, followed by a moderated Question and Answer discussion. Books will be available for sale and signing.

Our literary afternoon will include wine and hors d’oeuvres selected from the book’s recipes, including

Garlic-Lime Grilled Shrimp

Melted Summer Squash

Garlicky Swiss Chard Tartines

Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Stuffed Figs

Watermelon Agua Fresca

Tickets are $20 per person from Brown Paper Tickets. Space is limited.

The last date for buying tickets is October 8.

Nourished: A Memoir of Food, Faith, and Enduring Love (with Recipes)

A noted entrepreneur, food writer, and recipe developer serves up an evocative adventure story about her quest to find healing, meaning, and a place at the table.

Hunger comes to us in many forms, writes Lia Huber—we long to be satisfied not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. “Nourished” invites readers on Huber’s world-roaming search to find the necessary ingredients to nurture all three.

She begins her quest with an Anthony Bourdain moment in a Guatemalan village. From there, Huber takes readers to the Greek island of Corfu, where she learns the joys of simple food and the power of unconditional love; to a Costa Rican jungle house, where she finds hope and healing; and finally to California’s wine country, where she steps into the person she was meant to be and discovers her calling to nourish others.
