Clevelander Maria Isabella, author of the new book In the Kitchen with Clevelandís Favorite Chefs: 35 Fabulous Meals in About an Hour, will hold a cooking demonstration and book signing at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Hudson Library, 96 Library St., Hudson.

In her book, Isabella posed the same challenge to 35 local chefs: If you were suddenly to get a call at home from good friends who wanted to stop by, what would you prepare for them in one hour or less? Her book is filled with the recipes that were their answers.

Reservations are required and space is limited. Copies will be available for purchase at the event. Call 330-653-6658, ext. 1010 or register online at www.hudsonlibrary.
