Medora’s Book Club: Lush Life

Medora’s Book Club is a series held at Casa del Herrero that pays tribute to Medora Steedman Bass’ lifelong love of reading and books. The series celebrates the literary accomplishments of others on the grounds of the estate.

MAY 7, 2024 | 6:00-7:30 PM
Join us for our next Medora’s Book Club meeting, where we’ll be discussing “Lush Life” by Valerie Rice.

This delightful cookbook is a celebration of seasonal cooking and entertaining, featuring 156 of the author’s favorite recipes for every occasion. From fresh family meals to delightful snacks and refreshing cocktails, “Lush Life” offers something for everyone. With a focus on using fresh, seasonal ingredients, this cookbook encourages readers to embrace the joy of growing their own produce and savoring the flavors of each season.

Through beautiful photography and engaging commentary, Valerie Rice guides readers on a culinary journey through the bountiful offerings of California’s local produce. The book also includes wine advice and commentary from James Beard winner Raj Parr, adding another layer of sophistication to the recipes.

In addition to the recipes, “Lush Life” offers a glimpse into the author’s own experiences as a gardener, cook, and cocktail maker. Her no-fuss style and passion for fresh, flavorful ingredients make this cookbook a true gem for anyone looking to elevate their home cooking and entertaining.

Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a novice cook, “Lush Life” is sure to inspire and delight. Join us for a lively discussion as we share our thoughts on the recipes, culinary tips, and our own experiences with seasonal cooking.

— Guests will also get to try a specialty cocktail from Valerie’s “Spring” chapter. —

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to connect with fellow book club attendees and explore the wonderful world of fresh, seasonal cuisine.
