Presented by Lou Greenstein

Meeting Times and Locations

Do you have an artistic flair and a love for great food? Come indulge both passions by learning how to create edible centerpieces that will delight your guests.

Culinary historian, food designer, and former TV chef for Boston’s Good Day Show Lou Greenstein will show us how to create holiday-inspired edible centerpieces using carved vegetables and fruits.

Lou’s 42-year career in food service started in the test kitchen and classrooms at UMass, where he studied restaurant management. He went on to direct food service at Southern New Hampshire University, was an area director for a national catering company, and has managed hotels, country clubs, and restaurants.

His media experience includes TV chef, author, and columnist. Lou was a regular on Boston’s Good Day Show for 14 years, has written about food for The Boston Globe and Bon Appétit, and has authored two books, The Mystic Seaport Bakery Recipe Sampler and À La Carte: A Tour of Dining History.

Following the program, Lou’s edible creations will be raffled off!

Feel free to dress for holidays!
