What’s Cooking at the Fairfield Public Library? Spices!

The Fairfield Public Library is kicking off the fall What’s Cooking Series with “Spicy Cooking Life of Shakespeare” on Saturday, Oct.  22, at 2 p.m., in the Rotary Room of the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

The spice trade brought exotic flavors to England long before Shakespeare’s time, and spices such as cinnamon, caraway, cloves and more became established additions to Elizabethan cuisine.  As the jewels of the gourmet, the tiniest amount of the right spice can make all the difference between a bland dish and a scrumptious one.  Learn the differences between herbs and spices, how to store spices and shelf life, what spices work well together and with what type of dishes, spices by region; and so much more.

This is a hands-on class by presenter Colleen Bell. Participants will taste samples to determine the mystery spice, as well as taste testing various spices. Advance registration is required due to the limited space. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge.  For more information and to register for this event call 203-256-3160, or visit us on the web www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org.
