Genesee Country Lace

At our Community Table this week, you will be able to see bobbin lace being made by an expert craftswoman using a technique developed during the 15th century. Watch as she combines two simple moves in endless combinations. Bring children or grandchildren for an intriguing demonstration.

Almost every country in Europe boasts its unique laces. Chantilly lace from France is perhaps the best known. Come see a sample of that famous lace as well as a range of other types from a beautiful collection on display.

RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Green Beans and Cucumbers with Miso Dressing

I confess.  It's that almost unused jar of miso sitting in my refrigerator that drew me to this recipe.  Miso is supposed to last forever, and it might just stay where it is until doomsday if I don't come up with some appealing ways of using it. Next confession: This recipe is a bit of a departure even for me, a person interested in food adventures.  That is because the beans are not cooked, but smashed a bit (get out that rolling pin) and the flavor from the dressing is given time to penetrate to do its magic.  Take this adventure with me and let me know what you think.

Click below and start smashing. How's that for an invitation?.
