“A Love Story for All” is the theme of the February 9 episode of “Chesapeake Farm & Bay to Table,” a virtual series produced by Harford County Public Library and Chef John Shields’ Our Common Table, that highlights Maryland farms, fisheries and local businesses. The program will be presented via Zoom from 7 to 8 p.m.

February is a time of love and not just with a partner or love interest, but with dear friends who sustain us all year long. This program will feature plenty of recipes for the February 14 event but will also go beyond with Gal-entine and Pal-entine celebrations.

Join Chef John, Library CEO Mary Hastler and special guest Joyce J. Scott, a Baltimore-born artist, as they whip up some amorous treats. They will discuss the intersection of food, love, art and community. Among the delicious recipes they will create include profiteroles (a decadent cream puff) with amaretto chocolate sauce.
