Something for Every Food and Recipe Fanatic in GoWYLD

Jul 21, 2022

Mixed grilled bbq meat with vegetables on wooden platter. Let’s celebrate the Food Days of Summer with GoWYLD!

(Ok, we’re actually in the Dog Days of Summer, so named, according to Britannica Library, because the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians believed that Sirius, the dog star, which rises along with the sun this time of year, added its heat to the sun’s and caused the hot weather. Yeah, it’s hot. Find a cool spot and discover something new!)

Find the link to Libby in the Digital Library on to locate and enjoy thousands of foodie e-books, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines. From the home page of the mobile Libby app, click on subjects. Scroll (way down!) to Cooking & Food to explore cookbooks as well as books about food, eating healthier, insta pots, air fryers, home brewing, and canning and preserving. If you’re using the Wyoming Virtual Library webpage, click on subjects and scroll to Nonfiction, Cooking & Food.

There are also books with a story and recipes such as Native Recipes from the Grandmothers, or In a French Kitchen: Tales and Traditions of Everyday Home Cooking in France. If you want a different sort of food book, try Eat My Words: Reading Women’s Lives Through the Cookbooks they Wrote or Becoming Trader Joe.

This resource is available for free to all Wyoming residents. Access Libby at your local library or from home and elsewhere with your library card and PIN.
