Discover a new favorite spice or herb with the Coronado Public Library! Each month, the library invites community members to explore different spices used in dishes around the world. Registrants will pick up the monthly spice/herb selection at the library, cook with it, and join other food enthusiasts to talk about what they made and their thoughts about the spice. The meeting will be held, on Zoom, on Friday, September 22 at 2 p.m. Once registered, participants will receive instructions on how to pick up a spice packet for the Spice It Up, Coronado program. The Zoom link will be emailed the day before we meet. Only one registrant per household, please. Please register at cplevents.org.
This month we will have a special guest speaker, local cookbook author Stephanie Weaver.
Weaver will take us on a tour of her favorite spice -- smoked paprika -- and share five recipes from her books The Migraine Relief Plan and The Migraine Relief Plan Cookbook. She'll explain what goes into developing and testing a recipe that’s cookbook-worthy. She’ll also take us behind the scenes of the cookbook production process, including food photography and design.
Weaver is also a speaking coach based in Oceanside. She has a Master’s in Public Health in Nutrition Education and writes the popular food blog, MigraineReliefRecipes.com. Her recipes are suitable for anyone wanting to reduce inflammation and eat high-flavor, whole-foods dishes.
