“Perhaps no bread in the world is quite as good as Southern cornbread, and perhaps no bread in the world is quite so bad as the Northern imitation of it.” – Mark Twain
Well, you know you’re a librarian if, when you’re preparing for your upcoming Western cooking class, you create a Powerpoint presentation of the history of chili and cornbread. That’s right, our Director has prepared a wonderful slideshow that is sure to entertain as well as inform. This is Texas, after all, and we take things such as chili and cornbread quite seriously. We’ll be demonstrating how to make three different kinds of chili: your classic Texas chili, a healthier version chock full of vegetables, and a chicken white bean chili. We’ll also be baking cornbread from scratch, and using one of those wonderful mixes from the store (possibly the only time a store-bought mix is as good as something homemade). So we hope you’ll come with an appetite worthy of a Texas cowboy and join us in the Community Room on Monday, February 13th at 2:00 p.m. for our monthly What’s Cookin’ class.
