The Coronado Public Library invites the community to discover a new favorite spice with its monthly Spice it Up, Coronado! program. Each month, the Library selects different spices used in dishes around the world and invites the community to try them out.
July’s spice is Tamarind Powder. Participants are invited to share their recipes on the Comment Coronado web page devoted to the Spice it Up program, https://commentcoronado.org/spice-it-up-coronado. Registrants pick up the monthly spice selection at the Library, cook with it, and join other food enthusiasts in person or on Zoom to talk about what they made and their thoughts about the spice. The program began during the pandemic to encourage Library patrons to do something fun, safely from the comfort of their homes, then share their recipes. Classes fill up fast.
Spice enthusiasts may sign up for upcoming programs through the Library’s calendar by clicking on the event which can be found under the date. Now that health restrictions have eased, participants may attend a Zoom meeting with others or go to the Library for the gatherings to share what they made, what they liked or disliked about the spice, and plans to use it again.
