Community cookbook project launches

Published: December 7, 2022

Categories: Events | Programs

Gather together to share the stories behind favourite recipes and contribute to a community cookbook that celebrates the aromas and tastes of our rich cultures!

Cooking is one of the universal ways we welcome someone — by introducing them to our favourite dishes and customs. The community cookbook project invites people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and abilities to share favourite recipes with neighbours and contribute to the creation of a community cookbook we can all enjoy.

Join in these intergenerational events to share your culture and your cooking with the community.

Want a chance to win a free cookbook? Submit your recipe below by Saturday, Jan. 21 and be sure to check the prize draw box!
