Call for Recipes! Participate in the “Community Recipes Collection”

Introducing the “Food for Thought Community Recipes Collection”

What would a food-focused literary festival be without a cookbook or two? As part of our work with the Fort Collins Book Fest: Food for Thought, the Library District is creating a local, “digital cookbook” that features favorite recipes from the community and stories around food.

Help us create this fun community collection by submitting your original recipes – we promise not to tell Mom that you shared her secret ingredients! Each person is invited to add up to three recipes to the project. Collected recipes and stories will be made available to the public through the Library’s Biblioboard platform which also includes indie works from local authors and unique eMedia.

We’ve created an online submission portal to make it easy for you to upload your recipes and food stories to the project. On the submission page, you’ll be able to review the guidelines and learn more about how to submit.

Since this is a cookbook of sorts, please make sure your recipe includes key information:

    • Name of the recipe/dish
    • List of all ingredients with quantity
    • Time to prepare
    • Preparation and cooking procedures
    • Equipment required for the dish
    • Serving procedures if applicable

We’re interested in appetizers, entrees, soups, salads, side dishes, desserts, drinks – you name it! If you happen to have a photo of the prepared dish or a great family story that goes with it, we’d love to include that, too.

Recipe submissions will be accepted through September 8, 2019.

For more information about the Community Recipes Collection and guidelines for submitting a recipe, please visit the online submission page or call the Answer Center, 970-221-6740.

Be sure to also check out the Fort Collins Book Fest website to stay up-to-date with author announcements and fun activities happening at the free two-day event.

FoCo Book Fest: Food for Thought is happening at venues throughout downtown Fort Collins on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19.
