Autumn Greetings from Vermont! Our green mountains are slowly but steadily bursting into firey hues of orange, ochre, and red. The nights are getting frostier and the smell of woodsmoke from woodstoves and fireplaces lingers in the air. Though the cooler weather and shorter days heralds in a season of slowing down, things at Tasha Tudor and Family remain as lively as ever!
Many of you will have noticed the release of two very exciting new projects on our online store, our 2017 Wall Art Calendar and The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook. To celebrate the release of The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook we are happy to annouce several book signing events in the coming months with author, and Tasha's grandson, Winslow Tudor!
Winslow lovingly selected, prepared and photographed all the recipes in the new family cookbook. All photographs were taken in Tasha's home. Along with recipes for family favorites like corn bread, potato cakes, and roast chicken you will find wonderful reminisces from Winslow's childhood days spent cooking with "Granny".
Below is a list of dates and locations of book signing events across Vermont and Massachusetts. We hope you can join us!

Today, Vaillancourt chalk ware, ornaments, and dinnerware are found at the very best stores, museums, and catalogs around the country.
