Event Details

Just a few short years ago, restaurants were booming and cooking at home was something one watched on TV, but rarely attempted in real life. Then something shifted. In a big way. Perhaps it was the economy. Or a desire to eat healthier. For whatever reason, people wanted to rediscover the joy of cooking.

Recognizing that need, Chef Warren Caterson wrote the award-winning cookbooks Table for Two – The Cookbook for Couples and Table for Two – Back for Seconds, and Cooking Outside the Lines – Musings of an Extemporaneous Chef (Winfield & Scott Press) each featuring over 235 recipes using fresh and readily available ingredients. Now he has taken his passion on the road with an entertaining and energetic presentation that will inspire your inner chef while tickling your taste buds.

Join Chef Warren as he shows how a plant-based diet is not just a new food fad as he shares dozens of kitchen tips, cooking hints and humorous anecdotes about the joys and challenges of plant-based cooking for two. Chef Warren will explain why the healthiest populations across the globe eat a plant-based diet and how a plant-based diet can include meat, poultry and fish. He will share easy-to-remember guidelines for starting a plant-based diet and will show you that your pantry and fridge are already stocked with the ingredients needed to prepare a host of delicious entrees. Chef Warren then ends each presentation with a cooking demonstration, preparing a healthy Spring Vegetable Stew that anyone can replicate in their own home in less than 15 minutes.

This program is free and open to the public. Seating begins at 11:00 am and the presentation starts at 11:30 am. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine. For additional information, please call the Main Library at 904.827.6940.
