Above: An expert at cooking within dietary restrictions, Paula Castner will be bringing knowledge recipes and samples to the Library next week. I don’t know which treats she has in store, but here’s a look at two examples she’s shared on her blog.

The Southborough Library is continuing its Educated Eating series this fall. In the next session, a cook who has extensive experience grappling with dietary restrictions will share her knowledge and recipes. The “Healthy Eating” presentation will also include samples and handouts to take home.

The Library’s flyer pitches that Paula Castner has years of familiarity with food allergies as well as hypoglycemic and diabetic restrictions. On Castner’s blog, she frequently shares her recipes and cooking knowledge. As her blog explains:

Paula is a cook who believes anyone and everyone can learn how to create recipes for their particular dietary needs if they just have the information they need to do so. She has years of experience in how to “cook with nothing”, as her children refer to her baking. When she realized her choices were to either give up cake or learn to make one with no wheat, dairy, eggs or sugar, the decision was simple. Learn how to make a cake with nothing traditionally considered to be necessary, it was! So, she did! And she’s been creating culinary delights for her family and friends ever since.

The event will take place Thursday, October 5, 7:00 – 8:30 pm on the main floor.
