Local celebrity chef and baker supreme John Barricelli will appear at the Greenwich Historical Society on Wednesday, February 20, at 11:00 am, to discuss his newest book, The Seasonal Baker, released in August 2012. In it, Barricelli offers 135 sweet and savory recipes for seasonal fruits and vegetables, covering everything from appetizers to desserts.

A follow-up to his acclaimed SoNo Baking Company Cookbook, The Seasonal Baker showcases the diversity of produce throughout the seasons. More than just a cookbook, it offers tips on selecting fruits and vegetables, provides advice on baking techniques and even makes suggestions for substitutions for ingredients. This rich collection of recipes, great for beginning bakers and pros alike, is enhanced by beautiful color photography and personal stories about the provenance of the recipes--which often come from Barricelli's family kitchen.

John Barricelli is the owner and chef of the SoNo Baking Company in South Norwalk, Connecticut, which opened in 2005. He recently expanded his baking empire to a new location in nearby Westport. For many years he worked at Martha Stewart's magazines and television and radio shows. He was also the host of the PBS show Everyday Baking. A third-generation baker with thirty years of experience, he earned his chops at River Café, Le Bernardin and Four Seasons before opening his own bakeries. He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.

Treats will be served, and copies of The Seasonal Baker will be available for purchase and signing.
