Inspiring Cooks. Nourishing Communities.




Measuring Cups

KCLS has an amazing selection of programming and as I enter my last year of service with Redmond’s Library Advisory Board (two term limit!) they couldn’t have picked a better theme in my opinion. A Place at the Table is a year long series to inspire and provoke thought about, for, and with, food. As you might recall from Jaime’s Jaunts, books and food go hand-in-hand in my life!

I’ve already attended two programs in the sure-to-be-popular events – Wendy Albee’s “Design A Kitchen for the Way You Live!” for our upcoming kitchen remodel and Tames Alan’s  “Dining at Downton Abbey: A Trial by Fork”, which needs no explanation due to the popularity of the PBS show. (Our local PBS station, KCTS 9 is a sponsor of “a place at the table”, too. :-))

If you can’t make it into the library for an event, consider taking advantage of two online databases available - Universal Class and Access Video. They have thousands of topics available anytime. Watch for weekly featured food-related classes and shows.

In addition, to help everyone find A Place at the Table, KCLS is accepting nonperishable food that will be distributed
to 45 local food banks from March through December 2013. Hopelink and Food Lifeline are great further resources for ideas.

I hope you get an opportunity to visit one of the spring programs in this series – there’s something for everyone!
