Duo of cookbook authors come to Decatur

The Princess Theatre Center for the Performing Arts presents a special event, “Alabama Women Cookbook Authors” Betty Sims and Sister Schubert: Nov. 19 at 11 a.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Princess Theatre. It is also made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The special event with renowned cookbook authors Betty Sims and Sister Schubert includes a presentation about their culinary experiences, recipe demonstration, tasting, and take-home recipe sheet of their favorite recipes. The event also includes a book signing with these culinary stars of Alabama and their new cookbooks, Southern Scrumptious Favorites and Cast Your Bread Upon the Waters.
A former owner of Johnston Street Café and caterer, Betty Sims operates the Scrumptious Culinary School in Decatur  and is a food consultant. She has also received training at Peter Kumps Cooking School (New York, NY), Martha Stewart Seminars (West Port, Connecticut), Culinary Institute of America (Napa Valley, CA), Cordon Bleu (Paris), Seminar with Kathy Alex (Grasse, France) and Seminar with Pam Sheldon Johns (Montepulciano, Italy).  Sister Schubert will also join Betty Sims in her cooking class Nov. 18.
Sister Schubert, who has been made famous by her popular rolls, often sets the pace at her bakeries in Luverne, Saraland, and Horse Cave, Ky. by making over five million rolls each day, baked in the revolving ovens at Sister Schubert’s Homemade Rolls. But not so long ago, in 1989, Sister Schubert baked these famous rolls in the kitchen of her home in Troy, only for her family and friends. In September of 2000, Sister sold the stock in her company to Lancaster Colony, a specialty foods corporation in Columbus, Ohio, whose broad marketing system has propelled Sister Schubert’s Rolls into normal brand status.  Many people wonder where the name Sister Schubert’s comes from. When she was born, her older sister, Charlotte, couldn’t pronounce her given name, Patricia. Her parents told her just to call me Sister, and “I’ve been Sister to family and friends ever since,” she said.
General admission tickets are $16 and available at the door and in advance at the Princess Theatre box office. For tickets, call 256-340-1778 or visit the Princess Web site at: www.princesstheatre.org and for more information on the chefs:
