Happy National Culinary Arts Month!

July is National Culinary Arts Month – so, “hats off” to our favorite cooks, chefs, bakers, waitstaff, barristas, bartenders!  Whoever sets the dates for the “national months” surely was thinking culinary thoughts, since July is also the National Month for: Baked Beans; Cherries; Grilling; Horseradish; Hotdogs; Ice Cream; Blueberries; and, National Picnic Month!

GRCC is well-known for its excellent Secchia Institute for Culinary Education.  The Library supports that program with a terrific culinary arts collection and a Culinary Arts Subject Guide.  If your meals are getting kind of hum-drum, take a look at some of the newest library resources that can perk up your menu.
