Picnic loves PBS

Menus for the week of March 21st

Chef, Author, and PBS-Food-Show-Superstar Joanne Weir will be with us on Wednesday, when we’ll be cooking a menu inspired by her love & evangelism of cooking fresh, simple food. She’ll be doing a book signing for her new book, Kitchen Gypsy, which will also be available for sale. Stop by! It’s our first guest chef of note, and certainly won’t be our last.

Here’s what we’ve got planned for this week:

  • Monday takes the long ferry-ride to Okinawa
  • Tuesday travels through time to what colonial Brits would’ve eaten in India
  • Wednesday celebrates Joanne Weir’s Passion
  • Thursday sweats it out with Tex Mex
  • Friday stops by the farmer’s market to grab supplies for a spring picnic

Stop in, say hello, grab a bite to eat.
