COOKING FOR A CAUSE:
New York Times bestselling author Mary Kay Andrews will sign THE BEACH HOUSE COOKBOOK at Seaside Sisters as a fundraiser for Tybee Meals on Wheels on Saturday, May 20, from 1-4 p.m.
Mary Kay’s book signings are always a celebration, but this year, with her first cookbook, shot in and around her Tybee Island beach house, is a special occasion, featuring refreshments, a silent auction and raffle drawings with proceeds donated to Tybee Meals on Wheels which
In addition, during the signing event, The Sweetie Pie gelato stand at Seaside Sisters will sell special “Sweetie Pie” ice cream sandwiches made from an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe in THE BEACH HOUSE COOKBOOK, with half the proceeds going to Meals on Wheels.
The cookbook, with full color photographs and more than 90 menu-based recipes, reflects Mary Kay Andrews easy, breezy approach to cooking and entertaining. From an early spring dinner of cherry balsamic-glazed pork medallions, to a Mediterranean-inspired sizzling garlic shrimp appetizer, to fresh fish tacos to a Fourth of July beach picnic with buttermilk brined fried chicken and potato salad, to a New Year’s Day open house featuring roast oysters, home-cured gravlax, grits-and-greens casserole and lemon pound cake, all the recipes are designed to put home cooks in a permanently carefree, coastal state of mind.
The event, co-sponsored by Seaside Sisters and Mermaid Cottage Vacation Rentals is free and open to the public, with donations to Meals on Wheels cheerfully accepted.
