Area resident Theresa DeCaria, author of the award-winning cookbook entitled "The Table My Mother Set," recently was a participant on the QED-Cooks Cookie Table Special which was aired on PBS Channel 13 WQED-TV in Pittsburgh.
The cookie show, which was originally aired live, is being re-aired throughout November on the PBS station and its affiliate Showcase Channel station. According to Chris Fennimore, director of programming and QED Cooks Producer, "The Cookie Table is repeating every 14 hours during the month of November on the Showcase Channel."
The show also is being re-aired periodically on the main channel.
For the cookie special, DeCaria prepared her mother's Cherry Coconut Bar recipe, a recipe which has been in her family for years, she said.
The recipe will appear along with more than 150 other cookie recipes submitted to WQED for its upcoming "Cookie Table" book. The recipe is also scheduled to appear in a future cookie book tentatively being prepared by DeCaria.
