Lunch at the Library with Stacy Lyn Harris
Recently, I was invited to be a guest at the Selma-Dallas County Public Library for their Lunch at the Library series. It was such a fun event, and I want to thank everyone involved for making it happen.
The Lunch at the Library series is part of an effort to celebrate the culture and heritage of the Selma-Dallas County area through art, literature, and (of course) cooking. It’s such a fun monthly program, and I was so proud to be a part of it. For my cooking demo, I made my chicken and buttermilk dumplings recipe. I also signed many copies of my Harvest Cookbook for some of the program’s guests.
I had a chance to talk with the folks at The Selma Times Journal about the event. I love sharing my story with people from the local media. It’s a great way for me to connect with and reach people in my local community. This was my favorite quote from the Selma Times Journal article:
Before the start of the event, attendees had an opportunity to purchase autographed copies of Harris’ books.
She said her husband’s interest in hunting played a big role in her writing recipes for wild game. She also said a lot of her recipes are southern home-style cooking favorites.
Harris said through her cooking and cookbooks she wants to bring people back home.
“Home is where we are creative, industry takes place, it’s where life takes place,” she said. “I want to bring people home to garden at home, to make big meals around the table and for the family to be the center of the universe.” Harris said.
