John Shields Virtual Cooking Demo
Harford County Public Library welcomes back chef, author and television personality John Shields for a virtual warm winter cooking demo on Thursday, February 25, from 7 to 8 p.m.
The virtual event is part of Harford County Public Library's 2021 Winter Reading Program, "Take Out a Good Book," which continues the foodie theme from last year's program.
During the virtual cooking demo, Shields will create two dishes: Alva Crockett's Tangier Island 50 clam chowder (from "Chesapeake Bay Cooking with John Shields") and an apple crepe cake (from "The New Chesapeake Kitchen"). Recipes for the two dishes will be included in the registration confirmation email.
Shields is the owner of Gertrude's Chesapeake Kitchen at the Baltimore Museum of Art. He is often called "The Culinary Ambassador of the Chesapeake Bay," and he has written four popular cookbooks on the cuisine of the region.
The John Shields virtual event is free, open to the public and will be held via Zoom. Advanced registration is required at HCPLonline.org. Participants will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link and a unique password to the virtual event. Participants will also receive a reminder email one hour before the scheduled start.
