Cross Channel Recipes

The Church Street Library twinning project has been focusing on food. We’ve held two recipe workshops with the English Speaking Club – each member brought a traditional recipe from their country of origin and wrote it out in English. I then translated them into French. They are being sent to Place des Fetes for display.

We’ve also held a children’s workshop. The children were asked to draw their favourite food into a paper plate. Fifteen children joined this activity and their fabulous work travelled by Eurostar (with me) a couple of weeks ago to be displayed at the Paris library.

Church Street Library is currently displaying a wide range of recipes, with print outs available to take away. There are some particularly tasty examples that have come directly from Bibliotheque Place des Fetes’s staff members’ kitchen, so come along to the library this month and pick up some recipes from around the world!

Finally did you spot us in the Guardian newspaper last week? ‘Tale of two cities: UK library twins with French counterpart‘.
