Breakfast may be, as some say, the most important meal of the day – but not unless it’s the best tasting!
Beatrice Ojakangas will be at ASI providing demos and insights into her newest cookbook, Breakfast with Beatrice: 250 Recipes from Sweet Cream Waffles to Swedish Farmer’s Omelets. The book focuses on recipes drawn from her storied career honed in her home kitchen. The event includes small bite samples of selected recipes. The book will be available in the ASI Museum Store on May 1 – stick around to have your book signed!
