Join us for a FREE conversation with Adam Federman, author of the book Fasting and Feasting: The Life of Visionary Food Writer Patience Gray at Pitney Meadows Community Farm from 7 – 8:30pm on October 3. Fasting and Feasting tells the remarkable life story of Patience Gray: from her privileged and intellectual upbringing in England, to her trials as a single mother during World War II, to her career working as a designer, editor, translator, and author, and her travels and culinary adventures in later years. A slow food and foraging pioneer, Gray is considered the true grandmother of what has become the farm-to-table movement. Her influence, particularly among chefs and food writers, has had a lasting and profound effect on the way society views and celebrates food and regional cuisines.
A Q&A and book signing opportunity will follow the talk.
