Food and Drink

We have resources to help cooks and food lovers - from cookbooks to food history and food dictionaries.

We have a great selection of cookbooks covering all dietary requirements from plant-based to gluten-free. Search for a particular cuisine, like Thai, Mexican or Vegetarian. If baking or brewing is more you we have books available.

We have a great collection of food and drink magazines both in libraries and online.

Read about chefs and the history of food, find out about health and wellbeing that food can provide.
