Great American Pie Month? Yes, Please!

February is Great American Pie Month. Who decided that, I do not know, but I highly support anything that honors Pie’s place in America! And, not just Apple Pie!

How to Celebrate Great American Pie Month

Delishably provides a list of several ways to celebrate Great American Pie Month:

  1. The best way to celebrate it has to be throwing a pie party.
  2. Bake a pie a day
  3. Bake a pie you’ve never made before
  4. Eat some pie for breakfast
  5. Make a pot pie for dinner
  6. Cheat one night (or two) and order a pizza pie
  7. Let everyone make their own mini pie
  8. Play Pie Face a game by Hasbro (there are several versions to choose from)

Librarian Mike Klawitter curated the Great American Pie Month display with several titles from our collection. Take a quick trip to the second floor of the Library; you’re welcome to check out any of the titles on display. Many print titles on pie are found in the Circulation Collection at 641.8652 – and we have more in other call number ranges.

Why so many books on pie, pizza, tarts and similar goodies? The Library supports the instructional needs of Culinary Arts programs run by the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education, that’s why!

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.
