Niagara Food Book Launch
From peaches to poultry, from world-class wine to inspired cuisine, Niagara is a food lover’s paradise. Visionary farmers, vintners, chefs, food artisans and food security advocates have all tapped the delicious potential of the peninsula. In her new book, Niagara Food, author Tiffany Mayer tells the region’s food and farming story beginning with the first fruit trees planted in this unique microclimate. Meet the rogue vintners who took a dying wine industry and turned it into a tour de force. Step into the kitchens of the chefs who make Niagara a delicious destination, and get to know the eclectic cast of characters who help tell the story of Niagara food.

Tiffany Mayer is an award-winning journalist who discovered her passion for agriculture journalism in a classroom at the University of Regina and her love of local food standing in a cucumber field in Ontario’s Norfolk County. She has written about farming and food for a range of publications, including the St. Catharines Standard, Edible Toronto, the Western Producer and the Toronto Star. When she’s not writing, hitting the nearest farm stand or enjoying a meal, Mayer can be found writing on her blog, Eating Niagara, or leading the Garden of Eating–Niagara, the nonprofit she founded that harvests fruit for social agencies in Niagara. Mayer lives in St. Catharines with her husband, Steven, their daughter, Olivia, and their three felines.

The Niagara Falls Public Library is proud to host the book launch of
Niagara Food by Tiffany Mayer at the Victoria Avenue Library on Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 7 p.m. Guests will be able to meet Tiffany, hear her story, enjoy some local food, and have the opportunity to purchase her book. For more information call 905-356-8080, or email us at programming@nflibrary.ca
