Cincinnati & Soup
Meet Cheri Brinkman, author of Cincinnati & Soup: Recipes from the Queen City and Great Soup, on Saturday, November 6, at 2:00 p.m. in the Reading Garden Lounge of the Main Library. Brinkman combined her Queen city heritage with a culinary hobby to concoct a guide to making delicious homemade soups and simple, classic Cincinnati dishes. These recipes and notes summon Cincinnati’s rich gastronomic history—goetta, chili, mock turtle soup, hot beef and barley soup, and tortilla, or “chou” soup—and local legends, such as Ruth Lyons, Uncle Al, and the Hotel Sinton. Learn more about Cheri in this video.

Join us on Saturday, November 20, at 11:00 a.m., at the Covedale Branch as Joanne shares Latin American, Italian, and North American recipes from her cookbook, Holy Chow.
