Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming

Santa Clara City Library and the Silicon Valley Reads program present a book talk: Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming, by Laura Stec and Eugene Cordero, PhD, on Wednesday, March 10 at 7:00 p.m. in the Central Park Library Redwood Room. Ms. Stec is a Bay Area chef, caterer, and author with over 25 years experience in the food industry. Currently she is Culinary Health Educator for Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers. Dr. Cordero is an associate professor in the Meteorology Department at San Jose State University, where he teaches a course in climate change.

Cool Cuisine:Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming combines scientific fact and culinary art. It shows new ways of looking at the climate crisis, and how global warming and the agrochemical food system affect each other. Full of inspiring, healthy, global-cooling recipes, the book is divided into three parts: background to the global-warming problem, solutions, and culinary tips and techniques.

Enjoy this evening with Stec and Cordero and discover that food choices can reduce global warming, learn that what we eat does have an impact on the planet, and find out how to create a more sustainable world. Copies of Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming will be available for purchase; the program will be followed by a book signing. This Silicon Valley Reads event is co-sponsored by the Foundation & Friends of Santa Clara City Library.
