Tickets are still available for Tuesday’s “What’s Cooking At the Library Event” featuring Chef Diane Weber.
Weber will present “Edible Culinary Design” as part of the regular library series, which will begin at 7 p.m. at the Central Library’s Friends Room. Reservations are required, and there is a $20 fee to cover food costs.
Weber, who is known as the “Culinary Gardener,” specializes in growing food and then cooking and decorating with the harvest, organizers said in a statement.
“Weber will share her culinary secrets as chef and horticulturist,” the statement said. “Attendees can expect lots of good, informative information on cooking with herbs and fresh produce, along with a delicious sampling of her work.”
Weber’s pastry chef career began when she won a full scholarship to the Ecole Lenotre in Plaisir, France. She has served as Executive Pastry Chef at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, The Ritz Restaurant of Newport Beach, the Big Canyon Country Club, Mr. Stox Restaurant and Five Crowns Restaurant. She is currently on the staff at the Art Institute of Orange County and has been featured in Emily Tolley’s “Cooking with Herbs”, Rosaline Creasy’s “Edible Landscaping”and “Gourmet” magazine.
Those attending the event also will qualify for priority registration for the Oct. 19 “What’s Cooking” event, which will feature Chef Dave Martin from Bravo TV’s Top Chef Season One.
On Sept. 21, the library will host Chef Susan Irby, who is known as The Bikini Chef, and is author of “Substitute Yourself Skinny.”
