Paducah Author to Conduct Two Book Signings Saturday October 10th

Did you ever wonder what those gorgeous supermodels and movie stars (wearing size 2 dresses) choose as their favorite food? You would be surprised!

Actress and supermodel Mollie Sims, from Boaz, KY loves her mom’s Spinach Quiche. Jeri Ryan a graduate of Lone Oak High School and a regular on Star Trek, prefers a lamb dish prepared by her husband, French Chef Christophe Eme.

If you ask Louisville native Erin Hill, the harpist for musician Kayne West and who performs as Annie Blake on the daytime television show “Another World,” she will tell you in an instant it is the fourth generation family recipe for Fried Pumpkin Blossoms.

Reagan Payne, born and raised in Murray, KY and a regular on the television series “The Closer,” loves homemade honey granola.

If you want the detailed recipes, you will need to attend one of two book signings of the cookbook “Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities” this weekend by Paducah native and author Pam Whinnery.

The first will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. October 10, at the Grand River’s Harvest Moon Festival. The Grand River’s Chamber of Commerce / Western Waterlands Tourism organization is hosting the book signing as a fundraiser for tourism projects.

The second book signing is in conjunction with the Lowertown’s Second Saturday events this Saturday. Pam will be at Judeen Theis Art Gallery from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. This is a fundraiser for the Lowertown Artist Association.

The cookbook is also available locally at Ice House Gallery in Mayfield, Purple Toad Winery (as a fundraiser for St. Mary’s High School), St. John’s Catholic Church (there is a recipe from professional baseball player Phil Roof), Immanuel Lutheran Church, Murray, and the Yeiser Art Center here in Paducah.

If you have any questions or would like to use the cookbook as a fundraiser contact Pam Whinnery at 270-554-5332 or e-mail her at
