Jenn Louis will be at BOTH a 4pm demo at the Fairhaven Farmers Market and a 7pm in-store event at the Fairhaven Village Books on Wednesday, Aug. 23rd!

From one of Portland, Oregon’s most acclaimed chefs comes this encyclopedic reference to the world of greens, with more than 175 creative recipes for every meal of the day. For any home cook who is stuck in a “three-green rut”—who wants to cook healthy, delicious, vegetable-focused meals, but is tired of predictable salads with kale, lettuce, cabbage, and the other usual suspects—The Book of Greens has the solution. Chef Jenn Louis has compiled more than 175 recipes for simple, show-stopping fare, from snacks to soups to mains (and even breakfast and dessert) that will inspire you to reach for new greens at the farmers’ market, or use your old standbys in totally fresh ways. Organized alphabetically by green, each entry features information on seasonality, nutrition, and prep and storage tips, along with recipes like Grilled Cabbage with Miso and Lime, Radish Greens and Mango Smoothie, and Pasta Dough with Tomato Leaves.

Jenn Louis is the chef/owner of Ray restaurant in Portland, OR. She has competed on Bravo's "Top Chef Masters," was named one of Food & Wine's "Best New Chefs," and her simple, sophisticated cooking style, utilizing seasonal Pacific Northwest ingredients, has earned her two nominations for the James Beard Foundation Award of Best Chef: Northwest. Her debut cookbook, Pasta By Hand published in 2015, which was nominated for an IACP from the International Association of Culinary Professionals in the category of "Single Subject Cookbooks," and her second book, The Book Of Greens (Ten Speed Press) debuted in April 2017. Jenn is actively involved with nonprofits including Alex's Lemonade and Share Our Strength.
