Rancho Santa Fe Library hosts cooking class

The Rancho Santa Fe branch of the San Diego County Library proudly presents its 3rd Thursday monthly cooking program, “The Kitchen Hack,” at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the library’s Community Room.

Once a month, staff or an invited guest foodie will lead a cooking demonstration of a simple themed recipe to be enjoyed by tasting afterwards by the audience. The idea for a community lunch gathering was set in motion with October’s premiere of a Pancit Noodle cooking demonstration offered in connection with this year’s One Book One San Diego selection, “Monstress” by Lysley Tenorio, whose short stories draw characters straddling both American and Philippino cultures.

With Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching, November’s culinary inspiration comes from Kelly Hayes who runs the monthly Adult Crafts program. She will demonstrate how to make “mashed potatoes and gravy” for the vegetarians on your guest list. This is a great introduction for those of us who are considering taking up a plant-based diet. In December, our Library Guild Board member, Susan Appleby will host “Italian for the Holidays.” In January 2015, “Soup” is on the menu. Reserve to 858-756-2512. The library is at 17040 Avenida de Acacias.
