Southern Fried Sampling: Cookbook Release Party at Simply Red Bistro

The Simply Red Bistro at Sheldrake Point Vineyards has a new cookbook, their first, of recipes for their acclaimed southern-style food. There is a late-breaking announcement of a book release party tomorrow, Monday 30 June, at the restaurant.

The vineyard is located about 20 miles north of Ithaca, off Route 89.

The party will feature free samples of food, and music from the Evil City String Band. The cookbook includes a music CD from the band, which regularly plays at Simply Red's southern nights, on Mondays, and will perform at the event.

Most of the week, Simply Red features American and Continental cuisine that is decidedly haute, and well-regarded. The Monday southern nights are homier, and well-attended, to say the least. At Simply Red's previous location, in downtown Trumansburg, reservations were necessary even for stools at the bistro's bar.

As of today, the announcement gives the time of the event as "around dinner time."

Sheldrake Vineyard's phone is 532-9401.
