Cookbook author and lecturer Susan Delaine is teaming up with Fayette County Library to share her expertise with members of the community who would like to learn more about how to prepare balanced, healthy meals.

Delaine will appear at the Fayette County Public Library on Saturday, September 13 for a "healthy eating" cooking demonstration and book signing.

“Her approach to meal planning and preparation is especially helpful for moms on the go who are looking for nutritional meals for their families. We are very pleased she has joined us to offer a cooking demonstration to teach our residents these skills,” stated Chris Snell, director of the Fayette County Public Library.

Delaine is the author of “Balancing the Bowl,” an allergen-free recipe cookbook that offers a variety of recipes that are gluten-free (GF), casein-free (CF), wholesome, family friendly and affordable. Written for those who are caring for autistic children on a daily basis, readers can find delicious meal solutions, but easy-to-understand food guides, a clear explanation of the autism-and-diet link and a glossary of simple definitions.

Delaine will demonstrate for attendees how to prepare grilled sesame ginger chicken skewers with sesame butter, and banana bread muffins.

Her media appearances include Good Day Atlanta, WXIA-TV, NPR, Atlanta Parent Magazine, Fayette Woman and Chicago News at 11. Delaine has a "hands on approach" as she teaches students how to make a healthy and better choice for themselves and their family.

The event will kick off at 11 a.m. and will be held at the library, 1821 Heritage Park Way, Fayetteville, Ga. Proceeds benefit the Friends of Fayette County Library. Admission is free. Pre-registration is required. Visit for more info.
