Pumpkins are popping up in decors along with straw bales and colorful autumn mums; our landscape is a beautiful sea of rich colors. Now that it’s fall, we are back in the routine with children in school and we’re thinking about fall holidays and cooking. Some of you are thinking about pumpkins and entertaining.
I would like to invite you to a Holiday Open House featuring tasty food samples and lots of ideas for easy holiday entertaining and gifts on Saturday at Cooking at Bonnie’s Place, 9747 E. 21st St., Suite 139, in Cambridge Market. There will be two complimentary demonstrations. At 11 a.m. I will be discussing what to look for when purchasing cookware and demonstrating a wonderful hot soup for fall from my cookbook, “Farm to France.” At 2 p.m. chef Judith Dobson from McPherson will demonstrate how to make a beautiful holiday smoothie in the VitaMix. No reservation required. It’s a fun day to get excited about holiday cooking and baking.
