Local author and owner of Farmingdale Meat Market and Main Street Wholesale Meats, Lee Seelig will speak and sign his new book, I Love Going to the Butcher at a fun, kid-friendly event.
Lee Seelig, third generation owner of his family’s meat business, brings to life a treasured tradition of journeying to the butcher shop in this fun and heartwarming children’s book. Children tend to look forward to an approaching event — the barbecue with drinks and family and friends and, most importantly, food! But Seelig reminds us that an essential part of the magic comes from the meat market.
Follow a mother and child in an errand-turned-adventure, as they visit the butcher shop on Main Street, full of friendly butchers who share treats and cheerfully show off their slicing and prepping skills of the myriad of meats and cheeses in their shop. They know that the secret to perfect steaks and hamburgers is the artistry of the cut!
Then, it’s on to what we’ve all been waiting for — the grill, where Daddy takes over to create the most amazing smells and tastes. This draws out family and friends who gather in the backyard, eating and laughing and telling stories.
Mr. Seelig’s is a sweet story that reminds us to cherish the little things — like a juicy burger, a yard full of loved ones, and sliding under the bed covers with a full tummy. Read more at ilovegoingtothebutcher.com.
