Virtual Event/Farm & Bay to Table: What a Peachy Life
"What a Peachy Life," part of Harford County Public Library's "Farm & Bay to Table" on-going virtual series with chef, author and television personality John Shields, takes place Thursday, July 22, from 7 to 8 p.m. via Zoom.
Participants will go on a virtual visit to Black Rock Orchard and the 32nd Street Farmer’s Market with farmer David Hochheimer, who will showcase the art of growing peaches and other stone fruit. Al Meckel, owner and head baker at Parkville’s legendary Fenwick Bakery, will share how to make the iconic Baltimore peach cake right at home. The program will conclude with Mary Hastler, CEO of Harford County Public Library, and Chef John live from his kitchen where they will make an enchilada dessert that pairs local cherries and peaches. A peachy cocktail made with Maryland liquor will be the nightcap. Advanced registration is required at HCPLonline.org, and recipes will be available to attendees prior to the event.
