The Women’s Leadership Council will be kicking off the holiday season with a Holiday Afternoon Tea on Monday, Dec. 17, at 3 p.m. at the Nassau Inn located at 10 Palmer Square in Princeton.
The event will be raising money for an early reading readiness program that the Women’s Leadership Council is rallying behind.
Guests will enjoy a traditional tea party while listening to Leeann Lavin talk about how the movement to eat what is grown locally is gaining momentum and how best to incorporate this philosophy into our everyday lives.
Lavin’s book is about the number of chefs around the country dedicated to using only the freshest, locally grown ingredients in all the dishes they prepare and serve. This book takes the reader on a private tour of outstanding chefs of the Long Island area and their gardens. Each profile reflects the chef's personal style, cultural background, desire for healthy, just-picked ingredients, and gardening philosophy.
