The tasting will be held in the library.Several entries have been received, including Like Water for Chocolate, The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Tortilla Flat, Grapes of Wrath, Raisin in the Sun, Pete’s a Pizza, and others. Entries are based on books with food in the title, or other culinary interpretations of books.

Each entry will include a presentation piece, as well as samples. At 6 o’clock votes will be counted, winners announced, and the presentation pieces will be eaten.

Please consider donating a creation! This is an opportunity you shouldn’t miss to express yourself through food. Each entry should include about 50 samples in addition to the display piece. Stop in the library to sign up, or call 625-2015.
