Family recipes are tried and true - a testament to traditions and bygone methods of measurement. A dram? A pottle? Create a scrapbook page to preserve and showcase heirloom recipes.
“The kitchen has long been the nerve center of a household, where days are recounted and drama unfolds,” said Anoka County Commissioner Julie Braastad. “The recipes passed down from generations are often as telling and lyrical as the stories themselves.”
Join us to preserve your own family culinary history. Anoka County Library will be hosting two sessions of A Recipe to Remember Scrapbooking Workshop, presented by the Minnesota Historical Society.
Programs will be offered on:
Saturday, January 26, 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm (register here )
Johnsville Library, 12461 Oak Park Blvd, Blaine, 763-767-3853
Saturday, February 16, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (register here )
Crooked Lake Library, 11440 Crooked Lake Blvd, Coon Rapids, 763-576-4695
Participants will adorn their scrapbook page with a scanned copy of their relative’s hand-written recipe, family photos, images from the Minnesota Historical Society’s extensive cookbook and menu collection, and decorative papers.
“The best recipes are those handed down through the generations,” said Library Board President Bob Thistle. “Create a keepsake of your favorite recipes to share with your family.”
The programs are free and open to all ages. To register for these free events, visit the event calendar  or call your local library.
This program is a Minnesota Historical Society in the Libraries program presented by the Minnesota Regional Public Libraries in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society and is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
