“Both farmer and cook, Chris Fischer connects his stewardship of the land directly to the kitchen with beautiful, real food,” proclaims Chef Alice Waters in her review of Fischer’s new book, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook: A Year of Cooking on Martha’s Vineyard. A chef, farmer, and writer whose roots on the island run twelve generations deep, Fischer’s cooking combines practical, rural ingenuity with skill acquired in the world's leading kitchens. Beetlebung Farm, his grandparents' five-acre parcel in the town of Chilmark, is both Fischer's inspiration and the source for the fine raw materials he showcases. The chef will demonstrate recipes that express a unique understanding of ingredients that comes from a life spent hauling in lobster pots, cultivating vegetables, tracking game in the woods, and butchering his own meat. This event will include tastings with a complimentary wine, and a copy of this 2016 James Beard Foundation Book Award winner for American Cooking. Includes demonstration, small tastings of recipes from the book.
