Pereddies Restaurant Catering Manager Lauri Sisson will be at the Holland Farmers Market Chef Series this Saturday, June 5 demonstrating two recipes for fast, fresh, and fabulous summer dishes! Watch her prepare Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus with Poached Eggs, a quick and easy appetizer that will impress any guest this summer. Then, lean how to complete a perfect summer evening with a delicious Strawberry Tiramisu for dessert. Sisson’s demonstration begins at 10:00 am.

Sisson grew up in the West Michigan area and has always had a love for food. She took a job in a deli in Downtown Holland during her high school years and has never looked back. She accepted a position at Pereddies Restaurant in Washington Square nearly 20 years ago and has been there ever since. Sisson manages every aspect of the restaurant, including both catering and wine service. Pereddies enjoys a loyal customer-base because of Sisson’s attention to detail and great service.

The Chef Series is held every Saturday morning from May 15 to September 11 and is free to attend.

The Holland Farmers Market, located in Downtown Holland, features over fifty local vendors selling everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to plants, baked goods, floral arrangements, dairy products, and much, much more. The Market also features a food court with dining options for breakfast and lunch, as well street performers who entertain the crowds with music, magic, and more. In addition, the Market is home to special events, such as the weekly kids activities, a salsa-making and jalapeno-eating contest, and a national collegiate fruit and vegetable carving competition.

The Holland Farmers Market is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm from mid-May through mid-December, rain or shine. The City of Holland’s Department of Leisure and Cultural Services hosts the Market at 150 West Eighth Street.
