Would you like a new recipe? Starting Wednesday, February 10th at 5:30 pm, the West Tisbury Library is launching Cooking Local with Kevin Crowell, a weekly zoom cooking series for teenagers and adults with Chef Kevin Crowell. In a library press release they thank Slough Farm for using their kitchen space for the virtual classes.

All ingredients are provided by the library and can be picked up from the roadside during the week of each class. Sign up by emailing The class is limited to 10 registrations. One registration per household, but each meal will feed four people. There is a separate registration for each class date. Please indicate on which date or on which dates you would like to participate. This event is free and open to the public. The recipe for preparation on February 10th is Beef Bolognese with Fettuccine and Butternut Squash Raviolis with brown butter. Sage and balsamic vinegar.

Crowell is the chef and owner of Detente Restaurant in Edgartown and the Culinary Arts Instructor and Food Service Director of Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. According to the press release, he has spent many years improving his craft in order to be able to pass on the culinary knowledge he has acquired. His hope, the press release reads, is that regardless of your age or skill level, you will come out of these lessons with a newfound passion and curiosity to cook for yourself, your family and friends.

This program was made possible with federal funds provided by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. For more information about the event, call 508-693-3366 or email
