Chef Jake Brach, regional culinary manager for Rich Products and author of the book “The Sustainable Chef — Cooking with the Farmers of New York State,” will be signing copies of his book from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25, at Farmers & Artisans, 78 East Spring St., Williamsville. Guests that evening will also be treated to food demonstrations and will have an opportunity to sample recipes featured in Brach’s book.
In “The Sustainable Chef,” Brach tells the story of eight small family farms, sharing recipes from each and highlighting beautiful photos from around the state. The book would make a great gift for any cooking or food enthusiast.
