Local Food-Wine Event – Sunday Oct 27 11-3 – Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole

Hello –

Some of you may know that I started a specialty food business last year. Part of Vermont Quince’s social mission is to reintroduce the ancient fruit to palates throughout the U.S. Toward that end, we are teaming up with our primary source of quince on “Honoring the Heirloom: A Culinary Celebration of Quince & Apples,” a food event happening this Sunday afternoon at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH.  Please share the invitation below with family, friends, and colleagues – or if it would be easier to to do so via Facebook, please feel free to share posts from Vermont Quince’s page (https://www.facebook.com/VermontQuince) or the “Honoring the Heirloom” event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/197477020433664/).

We hope to see you on Sunday!  Please let me know if you have any questions.

P.S.  In addition to VTQ products, I’m going to be making turkey chili with quince, quince salsa, and quince linzer cookies for the “Cooking with Quince” demos.  😉
