Big Library Read, OverDrive’s “global book club,” is back once again! Join millions of users around the world reading the same eBook, at the same time, for free. The program that brought us Michael Malone’s Four Corners of the Sky and Jane O’Connor’s Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth is now bringing the secrets of the kitchen to your eReaders, tablets and computers.
Food Network and Cooking Channel star Aida Mollenkamp has provided her culinary guide Keys to the Kitchen to enjoy from February 17 through March 5. Keys to the Kitchen is a cookbook by definition, but it’s much more than simply directions to get from page to plate. Author Aida Mollenkamp provides helpful how-to information on everything from proper knife skills and finding the right ingredients to throwing a show- stopping cocktail party. It doesn’t just provide ideas on what to cook, but also walks the reader through how to cook.
In addition to providing her book for free to Big Library Read libraries, Aida will also be doing a Facebook chat with readers on Wednesday, February 26 at 8 pm EST. Readers will have a chance to ask Aida about her passion for discovering new flavors, her studies at the Cornell Hotel School and Le Cordon Bleu Paris, and much more.
