I have savored the recipes all week. Last Saturday, Chef Elizabeth Skipper, from The Everyday Epicure, came to the shop for our fifth drop-in cooking demo. I’m fascinated by the range of ability each guest chef has to offer. Elizabeth concentrated on appetizers and the results were stunning!
The day began with a bit of a struggle. Deb and I had agreed to meet at 8:45 to prep the shop before opening. She was picking up balloons and it never occurred to either of us that the Dollar Store wouldn’t open until 9:30. I became panicked when she didn’t arrive until 9:45 but with the help of our landlords, the tent went up, the tables were set and everything came together.
As to the food? Chef Skipper cooked up Sicilian Chicken tidbits with mint sauce, Bruschetta, and fried Sage Leaves.
The weather was perfect; cool but sunny. Customers, old and new, flocked to the shop and with the help of Deb and Kelly, we pulled off another successful day!
Recipes are up on the shop web site if you are interested.

Yum. And are those fried sage leaves? I tasted them for the first time in Italy recently.
They were delicious fried sage leaves! Can’t wait to try making them myself! Thanks for dropping by.
I tasted everything and it was AWESOME!!!
Thanks for the great photos of the event!
Now I’m wondering what fried sage leaves would taste like. I love the flavor of sage but usually only taste it at thanksgiving.
I’ve never heard of fried sage leaves but now I may have to try them. I’m glad it was a success.
Do try them Marie! You won’t be disappointed. Messy but so good.
