Food Activist Leslie McEachern at Bolivar Growers Market, June 30

The Alice Waters of the East Coast and owner/operator of the 
influential organic whole food NYC restaurant, Angelica Kitchen, 
Leslie McEachern, will visit with growers and consumers at the 
Bolivar (West Virginia) Growers Market on Saturday, June 30th. She 
will be signing copies of her beautiful cookbook, "The Angelica Home 
Kitchen: Recipes and Rabble Rousings from an Organic Vegan 
Restaurant," a book which, true to her admonition to farmers to avoid 
middlemen, is normally only available at the Lower East Side 
restaurant itself. It contains over 100 easy to prepare whole food 
recipes; it's a must for the bookshelf of any CSA farmer or member.

A founding member of Chefs Collaborative 2000 and an early supporter 
of RDI's Iroquois White Corn Revival program, Leslie has been a 
public advocate for a greater awareness of the economic, social and 
ecological impact of how and where we get our food. Her restaurant 
deals directly with quality growers and cottage industries. Under 
Leslie's management, the restaurant provides a dependable and stable 
economic base for her supplier community. (To give you a better 
impression of the scale here, Angelica uses 40,000 lbs of tofu a 
year!) She is a strong advocate of everyone knowing where - - and WHO 
- - their food comes from.

Leslie will do a local produce cooking demo at 11am with Frederick Md 
restauranteur, Kara Sheehy (Wildflowers), and will be advising 
growers on developing relationships with local chefs. She will also 
be selling and signing her cookbook.

If you want a signed (or unsigned) copy of "The Agnelica Home 
Kitchen: Recipes and Rabble Rousings from an Organic Vegan 
Restaurant" sent to your door, please order via email (igg@igg.com) 
or by calling 540-668-6165 before 12noon on Thursday, June 28. VISA, 
MasterCard, Discover are accepted. Cash, check or money order are 
also possible by special arrangement.  Procedes from sales through 
this offer will go to publicize the Bolivar Growers Market.

The Bolivar Growers Market is a collaborative effort of local growers 
in the Potomac Watershed, citizens of Bolivar, Town of Bolivar, and 
the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship.
