Our speaker, Executive Chef Branden Read is the co-owner, with Cheryl Zannella, of the Celestial Cafe in Exeter, RI, a local family-owned restaurant specializing in the use of locally sourced food from various local farms and fisheries. Branden will be discussing the various locally sourced produce he uses and the benefits of employing these items, including native herbs and vegetables in his cooking.
