Cookbook Signing:
For anyone enjoying the return to authentic, wholly-natural foods heralded by the organic revolution, Diane St. Clair's book, "The Animal Farm Buttermilk Cookbook: Recipes and Reflections from a Small Vermont Dairy" is a must-read. As movements like organic produce, grass-fed meats and artisan breads gain international attention and support, "real" dairy has been slower to blossom.

On Animal Farm in Orwell, Vermont, Diane St. Clair takes butter and buttermilk production to a new level. "The Animal Farm Buttermilk Cookbook" explains her techniques, from animal husbandry and land management, to her creamery processes. Here you’ll learn how to make your own butter and buttermilk at home, and then experiment with the fabulous ways buttermilk enhances food flavors and textures.

You’ll also find practical but unique recipes for using buttermilk—everything from buttermilk doughnuts dipped in maple syrup, to salmon chowder, buttermilk ricotta gnocchi and harissa buttermilk salad dressing. Families will love the buttermilk-béchamel pizza, the spicy buttermilk gingerbread and pork chops smothered in buttermilk sauce. Buttermilk is not just for waffles anymore—although the best waffle recipe you’ll ever find is in this book!

On Thursday, June 20, from 4:30 - 6:30 PM, join us as we host Diane to sign copies of "Buttermilk," meet her fans and spread the word about authentic dairy!
