On Display: Check Out a Book; Whip Up Something Delicious!

 

 

Looking for a new recipe to spice up your holiday table, or want to try creating a delicious meal from another culture? Maybe you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier. This display of cookbooks and other food-related reading might just inspire you to think outside your comfort zone when it comes to being in the kitchen. We’ve also included a few select food films and chef biographies that might get you and your culinary skills into the kitchen to whip up something amazing and different!

To feast your eyes on what we’re offering, come to the Library to browse the display or look at the entire list in the catalog (if you’d like, you can click the “Request It” button). You can also go beyond our lobby display by taking a look at the cooking titles in our OverDrive collection of ebooks and audiobooks, and searching our streaming film database Kanopy by typing the word “cooking” in the search box.

Bon appétit!

Did you know that the library has cookbooks? With winter and the holidays approaching, my colleague Erica and I have decided to share the Bentley Library cookbook collection with you for culinary inspiration.

We’ve chosen books about cuisines of specific countries and regions, dietary choices, and food items, to name a few ways the display can be sliced and diced (pun intended, of course!). We’ve also selected a few chef memoirs, biographies, kitchen helps and food science titles, and some recent films on DVD.

To feast your eyes on what we’re offering, come to the Library to browse the display, look at the entire list in the catalog (if you’d like, click the “Request” link to place an item on hold) or view selected display titles on Pinterest. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please ask at the Reference Desk.

Bon appetit!
