Kombucha Tea presented by Cheryl Paswater

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation.

We will cover the basic science behind making kombucha, why it’s good for you, and how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you! All participants will take home a starter culture!

Cheryl Paswater is the Chief Fermentationist and CEO of Contraband Ferments as well as an Educator, Health Coach, Artist, Beekeeper, and Writer.  She contributes as a writer for Edible Brooklyn, has guest co-hosted on the radio show “Fuhmentaboudit!” (on Heritage Food Radio Network), Co-Organizes the NYC Fermentation Festival, and is an Organizer of the NYC Ferments Meetup.

Registration suggested beginning Monday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254, or register online.

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

From the New York Times-bestselling author of A Gentleman in Moscow, a “sharply stylish” (Boston Globe) novel of a young woman in post-Depression era New York who suddenly finds herself thrust into high society.

On the last night of 1937, twenty-five-year-old Katey Kontent is in a second-rate Greenwich Village jazz bar when Tinker Grey, a handsome banker, happens to sit down at the neighboring table. This chance encounter and its startling consequences propel Katey on a year-long journey into the upper echelons of New York society—where she will have little to rely upon other than a bracing wit and her own brand of cool nerve.

With its sparkling depiction of New York’s social strata, its intricate imagery and themes, and its immensely appealing characters, Rules of Civility won the hearts of readers and critics alike.

 

Copies of the book will be available to registered patrons for pick-up at the branch of their choice. Please register by the first of the month by phone at 516-466-8055, ext. 232 to guarantee receiving the book in time.
