COOKING NUTRITIOUS MEALS WELL:
In a fast-paced, fast-food world, more people are turning to local ingredients, organic foods and home cooking to eat meals that are more nutritious. Two free programs at the Huber Heights Branch of the Dayton Metro Library offer motivation and inspiration for cooking and eating well. The programs take place at the Library, located at 6160 Chambersburg Road, in Huber Heights.
Cookbook Challenge Potluck
Monday, 2/29, 6:00-8:00 p.m. Make your favorite recipe from a cookbook checked out of the Library, and bring it to the Cookbook Challenge Potluck. Best recipes win a prize!
Savor the Flavor of Eating Right
Saturday, 4/2, 10:00-11:00 a.m. Join other foodies to share cooking tips, culinary secrets and traditions. Learn ways to convert traditional dishes to healthier versions that still taste delicious. (This program has been rescheduled. Original date was 3/3/16)
“There’s just something relaxing about sitting around a table with friends and family to enjoy a home-cooked meal,” said Kim Bishop, Manager of the Huber Heights Branch Library. “Cooking at home is better for the environment, healthier for our bodies, usually less expensive and definitely more social than a drive-thru meal or frozen dinner.”
Bishop, who leads both programs, notes, “Our cookbook challenge gives people an excuse to try new recipes, and very few kitchens have a cookbook collection as extensive as the Library’s.”
