A Shelter Island celebration of women and food: Saturday event at the Ram’s Head Inn

The Ram’s Head Inn will be the site of a lively event to honor mothers and food lovers on Saturday, May 11, at 5 p.m.

Guests will enjoy live cooking demos by authors featured in the new book, “In the Kitchen with Mothers & Others: Stories, Sips, and Recipes from the Les Dames d’Escoffier New York Cookbook ‘Stirring the Pot.’”

Familiar Island authors like Meryl Rosofsky and northforker and southforker Editor-in-Chief Amy Zavatto will demonstrate cooking and cocktails to be enjoyed.

Live music and wines from Saltbird Cellars will be included in the $50 ticket price.

Finley Shaw of Finley’s Fiction will be offering the book — a great Mother’s Day gift — for sale at the event and at her bookstore.

Proceeds benefit the LDNY Scholarship Fund for young women pursuing culinary careers.
