Cooking/Food & Wine
Introduction
As the weather turns cooler it is the time to preserve and enjoy the last of the summer harvest. Fall is a popular season for preparing meals of hearty soups, roasts and casseroles to ward off the autumn chill. Don't forget that tasty desserts can be created from apples and pumpkins to compliment your meals. The Library carries a wide selection of books and magazines on food preservation, cooking (including books on preparing a Thanksgiving feast) and baking. A few of the newer books are displayed below. Stop in and browse the Library’s extensive collection and discover some delicious recipes!
