Trish Lobenfeld, author of Ultimate Biscotti, will lead a demonstration on how to craft the perfect biscotti on Tuesday, Aug. 6 at 7 p.m. in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room. Books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served.

While researching biscotti recipes, Trish Lobenfeld was surprised by the limited and repetitive flavor profiles and challenged herself to create a broader assortment of recipes. The result is a comprehensive book with 75 recipes for sweet, savory, and gluten-free biscotti, including Ancho Chili Chocolate, Carrot Cake, S’mores, Red Velvet, Nutella, and Peppermint, as well as savory flavors like Falafel, Pizza and Porcini Rosemary.
