Chef, cookbook author and National Geographic Fellow (among other impressive titles) Barton Seaver will be giving a talk on Oct. 3 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the 1812 Farm in Bristol, sponsored by Maine Coast Book Shop in Damariscotta.

Seaver is the author of two terrific cookbooks, "Where There's Smoke and "For Cod and Country," the latter of which I wrote about a couple of years ago. That column, and Seaver's excellent (and easy) recipe for soft shell crabs with corn and black bean relish is here.

As director of the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program at the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard's School of Public Health, Seaver has important things to say about sustainable food — seafood in particular. I, for one, am thrilled at the chance to meet and listen to him.

Tickets are $45 per person or $60 per couple, which includes a copy of "Where There's Smoke" and samples of recipes from both of his books. Nicole Olivier of the Maine Coast Book Shop says that guests will be seated, but food will be served in tasting portions, with an emphasis on fish. There will also be a full cash bar. For reservations, call 563-3207 before Sept. 29.
