Happy National Library Week!
When I’m not teaching students about the wonders of library research or researching the habits of highly successful students myself, I’m usually at home cooking. My favorite cookbook these days is this one:
America's Test Kitchen. (2004). The new best recipe. Brookline, Mass: America's test Kitchen.
What I like about it is that each recipe is tested, as you may have guessed, and the science behind every recipe is included. It’s food research!
You might think there’s no place for cookbooks in the academic library, but check out the titles of some GovDocs related to cooking on our shelves right now, and available online:
- Fishing for compliments? Try sea fare from NOAA, from the Internet Archive
- Simply great cooking instruction: A manual for teaching cooking to non-reading students, from The National Clearinghouse of Rehabilitation Training Materials (NCRTM)
- Feeding the sick child, from Hathi Trust Digital Library.
- Down Home Healthy Cooking: Recipes and Tips for Healthy Cooking, from the National Cancer Institute
Bon appétit and happy research!
