On Saturday, September 20th, you’ll find me at the 9th Annual Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival. At 1:30, I will be doing a demo in the Marble House about how to make a French apple tart in the shape of a rose and I will be sharing a little trick that will enable anyone to slice the apples paper thin, even those who are not handy with a knife. Then, I will be signing cookbooks at 2:15. The festival runs from September 19th to 21st at Rosecliff, The Elms, and Marble House Mansions. For more information go to Newport Mansions Wine and Food.
