Naked and Hungry Returns to the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market!

And this time, we’re making CREPES! That’s right. Thanks to my dear friend Donna Myers, who is the new events coordinator extraordinaire, I’ve been invited to appear as the guest chef tomorrow at the market.

With the help of my sous chef (husband Robert), we’ll be making two types of crepes: goat cheese, braised spinach and spring onions and for dessert, our famous strawberry cream crepes. The ingredients in these two recipes are provided by N.C farmers so you know that what you’ll be eating is healthy and fresh and comes from a sustainable, eco-friendly source. What could be more delicious? And wouldn’t you like to see Robert in his new Naked and Hungry apron?

At the end of the demonstration, we’ll also be giving away a FREE CREPE PAN to the winner of a raffle. This means that you could pick up your own fresh produce and make the same crepes at your house that very evening. So we hope that you’ll plan to attend and help support our N.C. farmers. Without them, we truly would be naked and hungry!

The market is located at 501 Yanceyville Street in Greensboro, N.C. and the demonstration will last from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Naked and Hungry Celebrates N.C. Farmers at the Greensboro Curb Market!

When high school chum Donna Myers asked me to attend the 10th Annual Farmers Appreciation Day at the Greensboro Farmers’ Curb Market, I was thrilled to say “YES!”

It’s no secret that the title of my novel was inspired by the slogan of the Future Farmers of America —  the dedicated men and women whose efforts keep us from running around “naked and hungry.” My main character, H.T. McMullen, is not a farmer by trade, but having recently turned his back on materialism, he is now embracing a hand-to-mouth existence. He built his own cabin from recycled materials and lives on fish he catches himself and homegrown fruit and vegetables. With no mortgage, fresh food, an abundance of wildlife, it’s a dream lifestyle until…

H.T. discovers that his pristine retreat is anything but. In fact, it’s been built on the site of a hazardous waste dump. And that’s when the story gets a little more interesting.

To hear more about the book, and register for a FREE crepe pan (H.T.’s favorite cooking tool), join us on Sept. 10 (less than two weeks away) at the Greensboro Farmers’ Curb Market. There’ll be a host of other fun activities, including a locally produced breakfast, live music, and organizations that support eating local and eating healthy.

Hope to see you there! For more, and to sign up for the event, see the Facebook event page.
