Food writer Lisa Abraham to speak on regional chefs May 3 at Main Library in Warren

Food writer and columnist Lisa Abraham will talk about her book, “Famous Chefs and Fabulous Recipes: Lessons Learned at One of the Oldest Cooking Schools in America,” at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 3 at the Main Library in Warren.

The book contains recipes from chefs who have taught at The Western Reserve School of Cooking in Hudson, Ohio. Abraham compiled the recipes with the assistance of the school’s head chef, Catherine St. John. This unique volume covers the gamut with exquisite recipes from the school’s own chefs to mouth-watering dishes from national and international chefs. There are more than 200 recipes from 60 chefs who have taught at the school over the years, including Hugh Carpenter, Shirley O. Corriher, David Hirsch, and Michael Symon. Also included are biographies of the chefs, who explain how they got into a food career and what lessons they want you to know about being successful in the kitchen.

Abraham is a columnist and food writer for the Akron Beacon Journal in Akron. A native of Niles, she is a graduate of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University.

Abraham is the recipient of numerous writing and reporting awards and has been named best food columnist by the Association of Food Journalists and was twice named best lifestyle columnist in the Ohio Excellence in Journalism Awards.

A newspaper writer in Ohio for more than 25 years, she previously worked for The Blade in Toledo and the Tribune Chronicle in Warren. Her work regularly appears in newspapers across the country through the McClatchy-Tribune news service.

Tonight’s event is free and open to the public. Reservations are not required.
