Laura Donnelly leads a Cookbook and Holiday-Cooking Discussion
Join us for a fun and informative Holiday Cooking event with East Hampton Star Food Editor Laura Donnelly. Laura will discuss great resources for cooks of all levels and share the best cookbooks for both every-day and holiday cooking.
Laura will provide a fun and interactive tour of BookHampton’s cookbook section (kids’ cookbooks, too!) and will answer attendees questions about food and cooking and more!
After a long career in journalism at NPR and NBC News in Washington, D.C., Laura Donnelly decided to become a pastry chef. After a long career as a pastry chef, she decided to combine the two careers and make less money. She is now a local pastry chef and food writer.
She contributes a weekly column for the East Hampton Star called "Seasons By The Sea" as well as restaurant reviews. She is the food editor for East magazine and has contributed to the Dallas Morning News, Texas Monthly, Hamptons, and Town and Country magazines.
