Live Life Aberdeenshire

Posted on Updated on

If you were inspired by the Food week activities earlier this month, we’ve plenty in our Live Life Aberdeenshire Digital Library cupboard to keep you creative in the kitchen.

We’ve close to 200 foodie e-books covering weight loss, mug meals, international cuisines, vegan recipes, baking, bread, slow cookers and more.  The celebrity chefs are represented – Jay Rayner, Jamie Oliver, Nick Nairn, Marcus Wareing… even Joe Wicks wades in with “Wean in 15”.  There are also plenty of books for cooking with kids.  Our RB Digital magazine library has the latest issues of BBC Good Food, Food Network magazine and Australian Women’s Weekly Food free to download and read plus back issues of dozens of food and nutrition titles.

Sure, we can get recipes off the net.  Who doesn’t?  At least with these published ones, you know they’ve been rigorously tested and the nutrition notes are accurate.  They’re also good fun to browse 😋

While you’re cooking, pop on one of the playlists from Freegal, our free music streaming service. “What’s Cooking? a culinary playlist” includes Green Onions (Booker T. & The MG’s) and Hungry Heart (Bruce Springsteen).  Can you guess which Weird Al Yankovich track is also on there?

If you’re not a library member yet, join the library online for immediate access.  If you want some help with your existing membership or with the technology, there’s a Live Life Aberdeenshire helpline that’s currently open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am-2pm.  Phone 01467 532929.
