Food-Filled Monday Edition
We're cooking, baking and altogether making more meals at home than ever before.
Let's have some fun with that.
Food + Memoir = Foodoir eBooks
'Foodoir' is the new literary buzzword -- think one part chick lit mixed with one part chicken lit. It's a written description of someone's experiences which includes recipes or focuses on food. There are so many yummy ones to share... have a taste of one of these Foodoir eBooks. These eBooks may be downloaded in the Libby by OverDrive app or viewed online on our OverDrive page.
The Cookbook Connection : A Virtual Recipe Swap on Zoom
Test out a new recipe or dig up an old favorite and then create something yummy to virtually “show and tell” with the group - appetizer, salad, entree or dessert. Then grab a drink, join us on Zoom and share your family recipe or let us know what Cookbook you found it in. We’ll meet twice a month with a different focus each time. For our first meeting, let’s celebrate Cinque de Mayo and make something Mexican. Questions? Please email slauricella@wiltonlibrary.org. Register for one or both of these sessions to receive the Zoom details:
