Trial By Flavor

A free program to help adults and families discover new flavors and explore the world together from their kitchen. Every other month we will choose an ingredient to be the star in our free cooking kits and a demo video with a local chef cooking the featured recipe. Cooking kits are available at the library while supplies last on a first come first serve basis. No library card required. Limit one kit per household. 

This month's ingredient is lentils and the featured recipe is Moong and Masur Dal with chef Suzanne Butler.
