The Long Beach Museum of Art & Melissa’s Produce present “An Evening with Author Cathy Thomas” -- a celebration of Thomas’ newly released cookbook, “50 Best Plants on the Planet.” It’s an encyclopedic guide to cooking the 50 most nutritious fruits and vegetables in the world. Cooks of all skill levels love these recipes for simple sides, breakfasts, dinners, and desserts.
Thomas is the award-winning food columnist for the Orange County Register and was honored with a first place award as the Best Food Columnist in the nation from the Association of Food Journalists. She will be signing books (available for purchase).
Melissa’s produce will showcase glorious displays of fresh produce and provide an array of appetizers. A no-host bar will also be available. That evening the Long Beach Museum of Art will offer free admission to the museum, including the acclaimed exhibit “Architecture for Dogs.”
Thursday, August 15 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM.
Long Beach Museum of Art, 2300 East Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90803
