He might have written a book on low-carb cooking, but Dr. Richard Frankville's presentation at the Taste of Clay County Cooking Show won't be just for carb-counters.
Instead, it will be for everyone who enjoys old-fashioned, down-home cooking. The show, which will take place on Sept. 25, will feature Frankville and some of his favorite "homestyle cuisine."
"We don't want people to wish they'd gotten that recipe from Grandma years ago," Frankville, a Brazil resident, said. "We want to make sure this fare of Americana does not go extinct."
The show, sponsored by The Brazil Times, will feature a little something for everyone with approximately 11 recipes for everything from salads to entrees to deserts. Instead of going with "Taste of Home," a company that puts on similar shows, The Times and Frankville are going it on their own.
"It will be similar to the shows we've put on in the past," Times General Manager Lynne Llewellyn said. "But because of scheduling conflicts, we couldn't get Taste of Home's services."
The show has been featured "on and off" for the last 15 years, Llewellyn said. It has covered a variety of themes. This year's will allow Frankville to showcase some of his favorite foods and give some hints on preserving fruits and vegetables as well.
"We're going to share some of these old-time recipes that people have lost over the years," Frankville said.
Tickets go on sale Monday and will be available at The Brazil Times 8-5 Monday-Friday.
