Culinary Literacy Center

The Culinary Literacy Center is essentially a demonstration kitchen. It is part of a system-wide initiative to teach community members of all ages how to cook and eat healthier, more nutritious foods, showing that it is possible to do so regardless of their income level.

Programming includes “Food for Thought,” a monthly program for families during which local chefs and other guests teach basic culinary skills. There are also programs featuring topics like cooking on a budget, how to use seasonal fruits and vegetables, what to do with leftovers, cooking with kids and more. Each program is meant to be easily recreated by the participant in their own kitchen at home.

The Cookbook Book Club also utilizes the space to recreate a recipe from the book of the month. New members are always welcome. For meeting dates and times, see the Events page of this website. Also look for themed dinner parties and other special events.

The Culinary Literacy Center, funded in part by the Nord Family Foundation, is located inside Room A on the second floor of the Main Library in Lorain.
