Join us when author Mike Alfarah visits to discuss his new cookbook, How to Cook a Steak (and Other Life-Changing Recipes to Elevate the Food You Already Cook).

About the author:

Mike Alfarah is the creator of the food blog Alf’s Kitchen, where he shares his recipes for delicious steaks, sides and more. He has partnered with brands including Whole Foods Market, Dalstrong and Heinz. Mike lives in Ohio.

In How to Cook a Steak, you’ll find easy ways to introduce impressive flavors and techniques to your favorite meals. Use a smoker to add depth of flavor to your mac and cheese, or a cast iron skillet to impart the perfect crunch to your pizza crust. Learn a special slicing method that guarantees your potatoes absorb the most flavor possible, and incorporate lamb into your burgers for the ultimate twist on the original.

All these amazing recipes beg you to take your cooking game up a notch, and with detailed guidance from the master himself, you’re bound to succeed. Whether you’re new to cooking or looking to add some more “umph” to your meals, these foolproof recipes will make you the star of your kitchen.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.

About the branch

CCPL’s popular toy collection got its start as a special collection located in the Brooklyn Branch. The collection was housed exclusively at the Brooklyn Branch from 1992 until 2007, when access was expanded throughout the county. Today, anyone with a CCPL library card can request toys from the collection and have them delivered to the CCPL branch of their choice for pick-up.

This branch is a Student Success Center and a Greater Cleveland Food Bank Kids Café location.
