Contribute to a Cleveland cookbook

Have a recipe that highlights the community, culture and history of Cleveland? Consider submitting it for consideration of inclusion in a cookbook.

From LAND studio's website:

About the Work

LAND studio, in partnership with Cleveland Public Library, is seeking submissions for a cookbook.

The intent of the cookbook is to highlight a focus on community, sharing, and importance of food as it relates to culture and the history of Cleveland. The cookbook will serve as a resource for cooking, platform for storytelling, and as a way to connect Clevelanders across cultures and communities.

How It Started

The book stems from the Cleveland Public Library 2012 Lockwood Thompson Dialogue in which the topic was FOOD. The speakers, Michael Ruhlman, Penny De Los Santos, and Dan Barber, raised topics such as the importance of cooking, sustainability, eating simply, rituals, and the social camaraderie associated with food. We would like to extend the program by inviting Clevelanders to share their own Food Dialogue.
