The Mandel Public Library in West Palm Beach is inviting locals to submit their favorite recipes for a new community cookbook project. Participants are asked to share ingredients, instructions, and even a favorite memory associated with their recipe submission. The community cookbook will aim to develop and enhance connections through food. Recipes will be accepted through Tuesday, August 31.
The cookbook will be published in October. A digital copy will be available on the library’s blog and physical copies will be circulated on the first floor cookbook section.
“Cooking and enjoying a meal together has always been a special way to connect people, from families to even new friends,” shared Lisa Hathaway, director of the Mandel Public Library. “Cookbooks are always popular and a fun way to explore in the kitchen so our goal is to gather a beloved book filled with recipes from our local residents that also shares their personal stories. It’s going to be a wonderful opportunity to foster community connection and comfort.”
