Don't panic yet ! There's still time ...

It’s coming up fast! How time flies! Yes, Thursday, November 3 is National Men Make Dinner Day. If you’ve missed it in the past, here’s an opportunity for “non-cooking men only” to give their wives or partners a break, a chance to “whip up a culinary delight with no help from family members.” Be sure to follow the 'official' rules.

If the recipes on the web site don’t excite you, the library’s the place for cookbooks for every taste and level of sophistication. Real novices can try books listed in our catalog under Quick and Easy Cookery. And remember, if you’re really ambitious, most of the great chefs (e.g.,Jacques Pepin, Emeril, James Beard, Paul Prudhomme, Pierre Franey, Craig Claiborne, etc.) are men. Try it, you might like it, and have 365 days to bask in the afterglow.


After picking at over-cooked hamburger the other day, I'm not sure if I really want another man-made dinner anytime soon, unless its from Jacques Pepin. He's so adorable!
