Chefs Crandall, Cameron at Lewes Farmers Market Saturday

by Dave on August 18, 2009

This week at The Historic Lewes Farmers Market we will feature two demonstrations by area chefs.  Kindle, one of the Cape Region’s most popular restaurants, has a new home on Bank Street in the heart of downtown Lewes.  Lewes residents Matt and Allie DiSabatino own and operate Striper Bites in Lewes and co-own Half Full and, a gourmet pizza and wine restaurant on Market Street in Lewes, with Chef Ian Crandall and his wife Joanna.   Kindle is the newest venture by this successful team.  Chef Ian trained at L’Academie de Cuisine in Bethesda, Md. Crandall focuses on designing Kindle’s first- and second-course menu and preparing those dishes.  He characterizes Kindle’s food as regional American with a French influence. “No matter what I cook, those French techniques kind of work their way in and underlie all the cuisine.”  You won’t want to miss this 9 am demonstration and learn some of those French techniques!  Kindle, located at 111 Bank Street, is open from 5 to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 5 to 11 p.m., Saturday. The restaurant is closed Sunday.

Following with a demonstration at 10 am is Hari Cameron from Nage Restaurant in Rehoboth Beach.  Hari was classically trained at the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College and graduated at the top of his class.   Hari defines his culinary style as a mix of new and old culinary techniques and traditions, constantly elevated and challenged by his passion and strong sense of taste, sight and smell. He enjoys using local purveyors, whom he can work closely with to get the specific ingredients he needs to execute a menu.   Hari has been the core of many awards and accolades received by Nage Restaurant. While at Nage, the restaurant has received Delaware Today’s “Best of Delaware” awards in many categories including Best Restaurant, Best Caterer, Best Appetizers, and Best Burger.  Come meet Hari and enjoy his passion for food and his “surprise” demonstration.

This week’s popular Children’s Story Hour at the School House starts promptly at 9 and will feature the classic Eric Carle story “The Tiny Seed”.

The fabulous bike raffle will end on September 5th with a drawing for the 2009 winner.  You have 3 more weeks to enter to win!  For more information on the Market, our vendors, and recipes visit our website at
