Join us for a special event celebrating Hudson cookbook author Colu Henry’s new cookbook “Back Pocket Pasta.” Colu will demonstrate a delicious dish from her new cookbook which you will be able to taste, followed by a book signing. Ticket price includes a signed book, which Colu will personalize for you. Bring a friend!
As much a mindset as it is a cookbook, “Back Pocket Pasta” shows how a well-stocked kitchen and a few seasonal ingredients can be the driving force behind delicious, simply prepared meals. Pantry staples—a handful of items to help you up your dinner game—give you a head start come 6pm, so you can start cooking in your head on the way home from work. For instance, if you know that you have a tin of anchovies, a hunk of Parmesan, and panko bread crumbs, you can pick up fresh kale to make Tuscan Kale “Caesar” Pasta. Or if you have capers, red pepper flakes, and a lemon, you can make Linguine with Quick Chili Oil. With genius flavor combinations, a gorgeous photograph for every recipe, and a smart guide to easy-drinking cocktails and wine, “Back Pocket Pasta” will inspire you to cook better meals faster.
