The library's seasonal chef program will bring an east Madison eatery's leader to Monona next week.
The Monona Public Library's may program will feature a chef from Crema Cafe at 4124 Monona Drive on May 16 at 6 p.m.
Organizers said the free program for adults and teens will include live demonstrations, cooking tips, free samples and recipes.
Crema Cafe will share its spring menu and recipes using local products. The May Seasonal Chef program, "Unraveling Risotto & Other Delights," will walk attendees through the steps to make wild mushroom and asparagus risotto and chili-roasted pork loin from Jordanal Farms, in Verona.
Pastry Chef Rachel DePalma will also create mini cupcakes, the library said.
Space is limited and anyone interested in the program is asked to register in advance at www.mononalibrary.org or call 608-222-6127.
