Call for Contributions: 2018 Cookbook

September 17, 2018 invites all foodies in the Canadian library and information community to contribute recipes for our 2018 Cookbook.

Do you have a favourite recipe scribbled on an old catalogue card?

A special dish from your local area? (Anyone up for tourtière or Saskatoon pie?)

A drink you mix to dull the pain of the budget meeting/board meeting/<insert meeting name here> (it’s 4 o’clock somewhere, right?)

Please send in your recipes by November 5, 2018 to

For each recipe, please provide:

  • Recipe name
  • Your name, job title and affiliation
  • What type of dish is it? (Appetizer; Snack; Drink; Main course; Soup / Side dish; or Dessert)
  • Number of servings the recipe makes
  • How long it takes to prepare
  • A detailed list of ingredients, with quantities listed using standard measurements.
  • Detailed preparation instructions (Please check or test your recipes for accuracy before submitting them.)

A few additional notes:

  • Everyone loves a good story so if your recipe has one, send that along too!
  • Quantities for all ingredients should be exact and listed using standard measurements (i.e. teaspoon, tablespoon, cup), so that the recipe is easy to follow and repeat.
  • If possible, please include a print quality photograph of your dish.

Every cookbook needs a name. Submit a suggestion for a title and if we choose your suggestion you can win a free copy of the cookbook.

Cookbooks will be available for pre-order in November with delivery at the beginning of December.
