Local chef Kathy Gunst will host a recipe swap, and talk about her newest book, Soup Swap: Comforting Recipes to Make and Share, on Sunday, December 4, at 2:00 pm at the Counting House Museum.
Participants are encouraged to bring copies of their favorite recipe for others to take home and try.
In Soup Swap, Gunst offers soup lovers 60 soup recipes suitable to bring to a swap where everyone can sample the offerings and then take home a variety of leftovers to enjoy all week. It is a tradition that the author herself participates in throughout the winter with a group of foodie friends.
Gunst will discuss various aspects of the book, including the idea behind a soup swap, and some of the stories behind her favorite recipes. Gunst will then open the floor to the audience, asking for others to share the recipes and memories associated with those recipes.
Kathy Gunst won the 2016 IACP Award (International Association of Culinary Professionals) for Best Culinary Arts Series and the 2015 James Beard Award in the Home Cooking category. Her writing has appeared in the Washington Post, Yankee Magazine, and Eating Well Magazine, to name a few publications.
The program is hosted by Old Berwick Historical Society at the Counting House museum located on the corner of Liberty St. and Main St. in South Berwick.
