June 22--A cooking event and lunch called "Sunny Summer Patio Brunch" will be presented Saturday at the Granary Rural Cultural Center.

The Dacotah Prairie Museum is sponsoring the program, which it calls a morning of culinary fun. The museum said the event combines a program of cooking demonstrations by Christine Rawstern, gallery touring and "an exceptional lunch of summer delicacies."

The gathering runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $10.

The program begins with registration from 9:30 to 10 a.m. at the Granary's Putney Hall.

"The first demonstration will illustrate how to assemble a fantastic fruit centerpiece to decorate your table which can later be eaten for dessert," said a news release.

A short tour of the Granary Gallery will follow. Participants will view the exhibit, "The World Is My Stage" featuring the oil paintings of Jay Hopkins. Next will be a food demonstration of ham and feta bread pudding and summer fruit and veggie salad, highlighting fresh choices now in season.

"Recipes were chosen for their fabulous presentation and taste as well as their ease of preparation and ability to be taken and served anywhere," said the museum.

For dessert, crepes with ricotta cream and fruit will be demonstrated. There will be time for questions.

All of the food prepared will be sampled at a brunch with door prizes to conclude the morning. All of the recipes will be provided.

The Granary is at 40161 128th St., between Aberdeen and Groton.

To reserve a spot, call the museum at 605-626-7117 and ask for Pattie.
