Toadstool Books and Cafe


The No Fret Cooking duo was delighted to be featured at the Toadstool Bookshop and Cafe in Milford, NH, in June. For me it is always a special treat to have someone else prepare food from the No Fret Cookbook. On this evening, Shannon, the Cafe Chef made several dishes for attendees to sample. As we set up in the cafe, we were welcomed by a lovely group of women who regularly meet at the cafe to knit; they decided to stay for our presentation. This was a first to present to a group of knitters, which made for a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. As I set up we talked about knitting and it felt like we were all friends by the time the presentation began. A few of the attendees had already bought the cookbook before we arrived, had looked through it and knew what they wanted to make. They were delighted to be able to sample so many dishes while listening to Steve’s music. Shannon had prepared spinach balls, banookies, chakra juice, and mini zucchini provolone quiches. We heard comments ranging from “yum”, to “oh my gosh my mouth is experiencing a myriad of flavors.” Everyone was smiling as they eagerly went back for seconds. One woman said the samples were so satisfying and filling that she didn’t need any dinner as she was quite content. For us, the event was like spending an evening with friends enjoying each other, good food and good music! We thoroughly enjoyed our Toadstool experience and know you will too so check out their schedule for upcoming interesting presenters and learning experiences.
