Bonfils-Stanton Lecture Series at Denver Botanic Gardens

The bounty of fruits and vegetables grown in Colorado’s North Fork Valley where Bone summers inspired her to become a master canner, a gardener and author of the memoir/cookbook, “At Mesa’s Edge.” But nine months out of the year she lives in New York City. Adapting the culinary opportunities of country living to the realities of city life was a challenge but the process led to a new way of cooking that merges the thrifty traditions of the past with the time constraints of the urban lifestyle. Two more books have come out of this study: “Well-Preserved,” a small-batch canning book that explores ways to use home-canned foods, and “The Kitchen Ecosystem,” Bone’s newest book (set to be released in September 2014), which investigates the integration of recipes to create the healthiest and tastiest foods. This talk will change the way you look at the food you buy, prepare and discard, and will help you understand why the food you make tastes the way it does.

6 p.m. Social hour and tasting hosted by Slow Food Denver (included in price)
