WESTERLY — Jeanie Roland, the chef and co-owner of Ella's Food & Drink in Westerly, has cooked up something special for her fans, and it sounds delicious.
It's a brand new cookbook with the enticing title, "Butter Love & Cream."
Next week, Roland will talk about her cookbook and sign copies for those who purchase copies of "Butter Love & Cream" at Savoy Bookshop & Café.
With her restaurants The Perfect Caper in Punta Gorda, Fla., and Ella's Food & Drink in Westerly, and more than 30 years of experience in the kitchen, Jeanie brings a culinary expertise and competitive energy to everything she does.
Roland uses refined French technique and Asian influences to create unique cuisine that keeps patrons coming back over and over. She's a seven-time James Beard Foundation nominee for "Best Chef: South," and nine-time Florida Trend Magazine Golden Spoon Award winner who has been lauded in Florida Trend Magazine's Hall of Fame 2016 and 2017.
Chef Roland has been featured on the Food Network programs "Beat Bobby Flay," where she did just that, and "Iron Chef Gauntlet, Season 2."
This event is free and open to the public.
