Chef preparing mealSummer learning may be winding down, but the learning never stops here at the Library. Fall is just as good a season to tackle something new. Cooler weather, the start of school and the change of season always seem to inspire me to head back to books and back to the kitchen. I love baking and spending time trying new recipes and techniques, which is why I’m so excited about our new program starting this quarter at the Kingston location. Culinary Literacy brings together local chefs, restaurant owners, culinary visionaries and you, our library patrons, in the kitchen where you can talk about food and cooking in the Pacific Northwest, while learning new techniques and recipes. Like being part of the audience on a cooking show, you’ll get to watch our chefs up close as they walk you through techniques. And the best part? You’ll get to taste what they’ve made at the end.

Check out the dates and topics below, then register online or call to have us save a spot for you in the kitchen.

Can’t make it? Check out one of these great books and try out some new recipes on your own. And don’t forget to tell me how it went!
