Storytelling and good food have gone together since time immemorial. This Sunday evening, the Peekamoose Restaurant in Big Indian celebrates both, with “Talking With Our Mouths Full: An Evening of Stories about Food."

Sunday's adventure in locavore lore will feature Catskills writers Carrie Bradley Neves, Tony Fletcher, JD Louis, Jennifer Kabat, Jessie Koester, Bethany Saltman, Eric Steinman, and Kitty Sheehan, each of whom will get 8 minutes to wax lyrical about their relationship with food. Admission is free, though we suggest you pony up $10 for wine and snacks -- which, knowing the Peekamoose's reputation for lovingly crafted and locally-sourced food, are sure to be savory.

The restaurant has also dropped hints that “Peekamoose’s very own Marybeth Mills may discover her inner beat poet before your very eyes.” The event kicks off at 5:30 -- and be sure to get there on time, it may be a standing-room-only affair.

"Talking With Our Mouths Full" at the Peekamoose Restaurant, 8373 Route 28, Big Indian. Sunday, 4.14.2011, 5:30pm. Free admission, $10 for wine and snacks. (845) 254-6400. For more information, see the event's Facebook page.
