Cooking Virtually: Culinary Literacy Programming Online

Class Details

As the daughter of a farmer, knowing where your food comes from, and cooking family friendly meals on a budget has always been a passion of mine. Bringing food and cooking knowledge to our patrons are topics I have wanted to implement in the libraries for as long as I’ve done programming. I received the opportunity to go to training sessions at the South Carolina State Library for both the Charlie Cart and the Read, Eat, Grow initiative, bringing culinary and food literacy to the forefront of our programming. Before Covid-19, I had been planning and implementing culinary literacy classes at the library for both individuals and families.

Now that we are doing most programs virtually, we have taken our culinary literacy online. Some of the key things to think about are what you will make, copyright, the challenge level of the dish, what types of ingredients to use, including being aware of what fruits and vegetables are in season, what kitchen materials you need, and whether you want to do your videos “live” on a platform like zoom or Facebook live, or post a pre-recorded video. I would like to discuss how to create a virtual program using what I have done here at Horry County Memorial Library, as well as with the State Library of South Carolina

Presenter: Lyndsey Maloney-Reference Librarian- Horry County Memorial Libraries
Libraries have always played an influential role in my life. I started out as a page in high school and fell in love with libraries and all they have to offer. I went to East Carolina University and received my bachelor of science in Public History, then continued my education at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro to complete my Masters in Library and Information Science degree. I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and have worked with the Horry County Memorial Libraries since 2018. Baking and cooking are my creative outlets and I enjoy trying new and challenging techniques as well as sticking to my favorites.
