The Round Rock Public Library will offer a book discussion and cooking demonstration with Food and Fables France author Brian Beveridge from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 2.
Local author Brian Beveridge will share how attending the L'institut Paul Bocuse cooking school in Lyon, France became not only a life adventure, but also resulted in his new book Food and Fables France. The journey of how the book was created may be of special interest to those who have always wanted to quit corporate life to travel the world.
In addition to sharing stories about the trials and tribulations writing the book, guests will enjoy a short cooking demonstration featuring dishes from the book. There will be an opportunity to taste food from the book and you could win a door prize! Additional time will be available to visit with the author or the exhibits showcasing various food, wine or cultural topics. Groups such as Cook Here and Now and Alliance FranĂ§aise dâ€™Austin will have information and representatives at this event. A book signing and door prizes will follow the presentation.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required and will begin on April 1.
Please call 218-7000 or visit the Round Rock Public Library to register.
