Recently St. Eugene Library became the beneficiary of funds from a grant promoting Global Awareness. As part of that grant, we were able to purchase many new books including several global cookbooks. There is nothing I like better than seeing a student check out a book and then really read and enjoy it (and in this case, use it)! Michael checked out Recipes From Italy by Dana Meachen Rau and then made a delicious meal for his entire family. For the main course Michael made Scampi (page 34) with shrimp,pasta, lemon and garlic, mmmmmm! And for dessert, there was Cornetti (page 16)-the Italian version of a French croissant filled with chocolate or hazelnut. Bravo, Michael!
