NASHUA, NH – Former NH First Lady Dr. Susan Lynch, a pediatric specialist and healthy eating advocate for all ages, will present a New Hampshire fall harvest, farm-to-table cooking demonstration and conversation with breast cancer survivor and activist Carolyn Choate to benefit the NH Breast Cancer Coalition on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at Albee Phillips Kitchen & Bath Specialists, 83 West Pearl St., Nashua. Tickets are $10.
“I’ve had the pleasure of cooking with Carolyn at all sorts of non-profits across the state over the years, from the Boys & Girls Club, the Nashua Senior Center, and the Recipe for Success program at NH Food Bank,” said Dr. Lynch. “Coming together for the NH Breast Cancer Coalition is a great reason to pair up again as they do so much for so many women needing help navigating the often overwhelming aspects of the disease.”
Dr. Lynch continued, “Carolyn is a terrific interviewer and sous chef; we have wonderful chemistry in the kitchen so the event in Nashua will be that unique blend of cooking and conversing about life including my newest role as grandmother to 7-month old George, the light of my and John’s life.”
A long-time vegetable gardener and vocal supporter of the farm-to-table movement for personal use as well as that of the Granite state’s restaurant industry, Dr. Lynch will feature several traditional main and side dishes healthily revamped using a variety of fall harvest produce from her organic garden and that of Choate’s.
Baby kale pesto, red potato salad with shallot/olive oil dressing, and apple crisp are a few of the tasty creations attendees will sample. Recipe printouts will be available, as well.
New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition president, Nancy Ryan, said Dr. Lynch’s generous contribution of time and talent is deeply appreciated. “Those of us at the NHBCC are so excited and honored that Dr. Susan Lynch and Carolyn Choate have cooked up such a unique event to benefit our organization. One hundred percent of the proceeds will directly support New Hampshire breast cancer patients who are unable to keep up with critical financial expenses as they face diagnosis, treatment and recovery.”
Last year, the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition’s Support Services Fund served 72 women needing financial support for basic household expenses while undergoing treatment. Ranging from grocery to gasoline gift cards; emergency funding for home fuel, Cobra insurance payments, and rent, the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition was established in 1992 and remains one of the most active, respected 501(c)3 non-profits in the state.
Albee Phillips Kitchen & Bath Specialists, host of the event, has enjoyed a 20-year career designing and installing some of greater Nashua’s most stunning examples of home improvement workmanship and master carpentry. Owners Kathy Albee Phillips and Scott Phillips are pleased to have the community use their showroom for civic events they support including the NH Breast Cancer Coalition, Nashua Center for Multiply Handicapped, Nashua Beautification Advisory Committee, and the Humane Society of Greater Nashua.
