Food Heaven!

May 9, 2013

I took a little browse through the TX section at the Exchange District Campus Library and became enraptured with food-related inspiration from around the globe! The books here offer tantalizing photos, recipes, cooking and baking techniques, information on meal presentation, and even delve into beer-brewing in Canada (Great Canadian Beer Book). Check out some of my finds below — just a small taste of RRC Library’s glorious culinary collection. Trust me, the covers don’t do these books justice.

TX section explained

The “TX” section is where culinary arts resources are located, beginning at TX 341. TX is the first part of the call number, which serves to keep all of the books about that broad subject together on the shelves. This is incredibly helpful when you want to browse a topic of interest.

Browse in person or online!

Why not browse the shelves yourself?  If you can’t browse in person, you can always surf the Library’s holdings online via the Library Catalogue.

Further Food for Thought…Culinary Periodicals

Did you know about the Library’s selection of culinary periodicals? The Library offers a comfy sitting area for you to sit and enjoy a relaxing read. Or if you prefer, back issues may be borrowed by any patron with a valid Library card.
