When food writer and personal chef Karen Covey moved to the south coast of Massachusetts, she discovered a gastronomic treasure trove. One of those culinary gems is How On Earth, a store and café that features locally grown and organic vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, and seafood. Karen was inspired establishments such as How On Earth when she endeavored to write The Coastal Table.

The Coastal Table celebrates the region’s epicurean heritage with a fresh, simple twist on traditional New England fare. In the book, Covey profiles many of the area’s winemakers, farmers, cheese makers, and fishermen who are quietly producing some of New England’s finest ingredients. How On Earth proudly showcases those same elements that are at the heart of The Coastal Table.

On Saturday, September 7th, from 11AM to 1PM, Covey will be at How On Earth, sharing her knowledge of the region’s culinary traditions, signing copies of the book, and offering patrons a tasting of some of the book’s recipes. Join her to chat about the region, the area’s produce, and her experiences writing this unique collection of recipes.
