National Coffee Day

There are so many “national days” but this is one I can get behind 100% – National Coffee Day! To support the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education, GRCC’s Library has a great collection of titles on coffee. Titles range from cookbooks like Top Coffee Recipes, to histories like Uncommon Grounds, to the sociology around coffee drinking in The Little Book of Fika: The Uplifting Daily Ritual of the Swedish Coffee Break.

17 (!) national wine days in a calendar year is a “bit much” but we’ll get on board with tomorrow’s special day! If you want to learn more about wine, take a look at the Culinary Arts Subject Guide [Wines of the World] tab. The links were recommended by Assistant Professor Holly VanRyn who has developed a new class in partnership with the Society of Wine Educators.
