Executive Chef Renee Scharoff will demonstrate cooking with natural foods, including local honey, at the October meeting of the Suffield Garden Club.

The Suffield Garden Club is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of programs, beginning on October 3 with “Sweet As Can Bee” by Executive Chef Renee Scharoff. Renee was raised on a Connecticut farm, where her appreciation for fresh and locally sourced food developed organically. Renee will talk about her experiences as a new beekeeper, how and why she got started in catering, and how beekeeping and the farm-to-table concept are incorporated into her business, Blonde on the Run Catering. As a food artisan, Renee works with small local farms to produce delicious, mostly organic and well-cared-for food. See Chef Renee at work as she demonstrates preparing and plating a special dish using fresh flowers, honey and honeycomb. Tasting samples will be available.

Garden Club members and non-members are welcome to attend this free program. Interested people may register via Facebook by entering this link:

“Sweet As Can Bee” will be held at the Second Baptist Church Fellowship Room, 100 North Main Street, Suffield. Mark your calendars for October 3, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.

Looking ahead, the Garden Club will present “Then & Now: The Importance and Relevance of Frederic Law Olmsted” by Leslie Martino at 6:30 p.m. on November 7 at the Kent Memorial Library. For this program, please register on the Kent Memorial Library website. In December, spruce up your fireplace mantle with natural, holiday-themed designs brought to you by Laurie Lemek, member of the American Institute of Floral Design. Laurie works around the world and has designed at the White House for three presidents. Her finished creations will be raffled at the end of the meeting.
