You don’t have to a celebrity chef to make cooking fun, simple and delicious. And author and chef Warren Caterson will show you how, and a whole lot more, when he brings his cooking show to the Deltona Regional Library. Part of Volusia County’s celebration of the NEA Big Read program, Cooking with Chef Warren will take place from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 18.
Chef Warren has studied at the Southeast Institute of Culinary Arts and is a food enthusiast, celebrity chef and award-winning author who is perhaps best known for his “Table for Two” cookbook series. He lives in Sarasota and travels extensively presenting his cooking demonstrations at food & wine festivals, conventions and other events across the country. Participants will pick up cooking tips and recipes from his show and learn what kitchen gear is needed to become a celebrity chef at home without breaking the budget.
The cooking show at the Deltona Regional Library is free of charge. More information about the show or other programs can be obtained by calling the library, 2150 Eustace Ave., at (386) 789-7207.
The cooking show is part of this year’s NEA Big Read program, which is intended to encourage reading through a series of community events designed around a single book. The Volusia County Public Library system received a $15,000 NEA Big Read grant and selected the Celeste Ng novel "Everything I Never Told You” as its title. The Volusia County Council matched that grant with an additional $15,000. The library system’s branches and other venues are hosting more than 130 programs such as book discussions, author talks, concerts and informative presentations based on the novel. The NEA Big Read program kicked off on Jan. 25 and runs through Feb. 29. A complete list of local events can be found at www.volusialibrary.org.
