MENOMONIE (WQOW) - During quarantine, you might find yourself with more time on your hands, including some that you might dedicate to getting creative with your cooking. Now, the Menomonie Public Library wants to hear about the recipes you created during quarantine.
The library is creating a Quarantine Cuisine Cookbook. Youth services manager Jodi Bird said they got the idea from other libraries around the county doing the same thing. She said you can send them up to two recipes before Jan. 31 to be included in the book. For every recipe, submitters will be entered to win a gift basket with items from the Menomonie Market Food Co-op.
Bird said that between wintertime and the pandemic they wanted to do something fun for the community.
"We know that people are staying home a lot and that people are cooking a lot so we thought it would be fun for our community to get together and put out their favorite recipes," Bird said.
Bird said that anyone who submits a recipe will receive a copy of the cookbook which they plan to print and bind at the library in February.
