For added bookish flair, we will host a talk with Moncton's own cookbook author Dennis Prescott whose very popular new cookbook Eat Delicious came out last spring. Plus, Dennis will share his expert tips on how best to capture the story of food through photography.
All proceeds from the night's event, which will be doubled by World Wine & Food Expo, will be donated back to the Frye Festival, so please support generously. You will get a charity receipt for part of the ticket cost.Tickets are on sale now online, in person at the Moncton Coliseum and by phone at (506) 857-4100 during business hours from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.!
