Tickets for the events range from $50 to $150 (hands-on cooking classes include a signed copy of Fuller’s cookbook).
“I’m an Upstate New York girl, born and raised on a dairy farm where farm-to-table wasn’t a movement, it was a way of life,” said Celebrity Chef, Nancy Fuller. “I’m excited to come to the Finger Lakes region where there’s a shared passion and respect for the natural, organic relationship of the land, farmer, and the food.”
Fuller will recreate delicious dishes from her cookbook, “Farmhouse Rules: Simple, Seasonal Meals for the Whole Family,” for fans and food lovers to see and sample. Attendees will cook side-by-side with Fuller in the hands-on classes as she skillfully prepares some of her favorite dishes. Recipes will use locally sourced seasonal ingredients, which is important to Fuller who is an advocate for the region’s hardworking farmers and has promoted farm-to-table as a way of life since before it was a movement.
