The holidays are almost upon us, and that means one thing: food. Cooking, baking, eating—it’s all happening at an exponential rate over the next couple of months. If you love to cook and/or you are the designated “driver” in the kitchen, let the library help you get through November and December.
When I searched the library’s catalog for cookbooks published in 2023, I received over 150 results. This is a lot considering that I limited my search to one year—and the year isn’t over! But this is just the tip of the iceberg (or ice cream?) because the library owns thousands of food-related titles for all ages and levels of cooks. Talk about a cookbook-palooza!
Enjoy this random sampling of newly published cookbooks, and may the cooking (and eating) be very merry for all.
