LUDLOW - If you're an Americana cookbook collector like I am-especially those fun, cookbooks published by local organizations such as garden clubs and churches for the purposes of fundraising-then you'll enjoy a unique event that's planned for Saturday, Aug. 14, at the Cafe at Delight in downtown Ludlow.
Church cookbooks and the like aren't an unusual way for community organizations to raise funds, however, it is unusual to sit down and enjoy a fully cooked local dinner serviving dishes based on, let's say, Aunt Martha's recipes that appeared in her garden club's cookbook.
So that's why members of the Black River Academy Museum deserve kudos for organizing what promises to be a special event for Ludlow gourmets-it's a dining event that will surely put Aunt Martha's quaint recipes to shame. Members are planning the BRAM cookbook dinner for Aug. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m., at Cafe at Delight.
According to Ralph Pace of BRAM, "BRAM will be hosting a buffer dinner that will feature creations found in its recently published cookbook. The recipes were supplied by gourmet cooks from the community. Food offered will include everything from appetizers through entrees to desserts."
The Caf at Delight is located at the traffic signal on the corner of Main and Depot streets in Ludlow. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 for ages 8 and under and it's all for a good cause-the historic Black River Academy Museum.
