On Friday December 12th 7-9pm at West End Bakery in West Asheville Cathy Cleary will host the launch of her cookbook “The West End Bakery Cookbook.” Over 75 of Cleary’s original recipes that are West End favorites are included, and will be on sale for $19.99 plus tax. Recipes celebrate farm fresh food, collaborating with friends and building community.

Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be served highlighting recipes from the cookbook.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the book will go to FEAST a local non-profit teaching cooking and gardening classes to kids. FEAST uses fresh fruits and vegetables to make nutritious meals and snacks giving kids skills that they will use throughout their lives to improve their overall health.

Cleary and her business partner opened the West End Bakery and Café in 2001. Since then it has become known for great food and community activism. Today the bakery continues to be a meeting place for friends old and new. The food is always made from scratch by talented bakers and chefs, local artwork hangs on the walls, freshly roasted coffee brews, local farmers bring in their produce, eggs, and meat, and everyone is welcome!
