West 7th Public LibraryBy Terry Giinther, Library Manager
Explore the World through Cookbooks
There are so many ways to explore and celebrate the diversity of our community and world. Cooking and eating are a very delicious way to do it. West 7th Library has many books about meal preparation and healthy eating. Expand your culinary skills around baking, cooking or grilling by checking out a cookbook at the library. Cookbooks are a wonderful way to explore the foods and traditions of other cultures as well as discover new ways to use and preserve the foods raised locally at farmers markets. The library has books, e-books and magazines that offer something for everyone.
Saint Paul Public Library also offers a blog and podcast for foodies on our website. Check out Cooking the Books with Laurie Allman at sppl.org/cooking-the-books where Allman interviews local growers and cookbook authors and explores new culinary connections.
