NEW! the farm and Woodbridge Town Library will be co-hosting four monthly events focused on food and where it comes from. These events are intended to be a fun way for residents to meet fellow residents and discuss a variety of food related topics during the cooler months. All events are open to the public and will take place on the last Wednesday of each of the months of January, February, March, and April 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm in the library’s meeting room. The first event on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 @ 6:00 P.M. will be a Vegetarian Potluck Supper. Those interested in attending are asked to prepare and bring a dish to share that is vegetarian, delicious, and healthy.
For ideas of what dish to make and bring, everyone is encouraged to check out a vegetarian cookbook from the Woodbridge Library’s extensive collection of cookbooks. In addition to bringing a dish to share, please bring a copy of the dish’s recipe with your name on it. This will enable others who enjoy your dish to talk to you at the potluck about how you made it, and also help those with specific food allergies to be mindful of your dish’s ingredients. After the potluck, copies of all the recipes will be posted on the Massaro Farm website for everyone to use.
Paper plates, napkins, cutlery, and cups will be supplied. Please remember to bring a serving spoon with your dish.
To register for the Massaro Community Potluck Supper, please visit www.woodbridgetownlibrary.org or call the library at 203-389-3433.
