What do you like to eat to fuel your bike rides? Where do you find recipes for healthy, filling, portable goodies? 

Get inspired by "The Culinary Cyclist: A Cookbook and Companion for the Good Life," by Anna Brones. We're honored that Anna will be in attendance at our meeting this month! 

From Microcosm Publishing: "[This book is] Anna Brones' love song to the dual pleasures of eating well and getting around by bicycle. More than a cookbook, it's a guide to good living. Illustrator Johanna Kindvall adds charm and clarity to the essays and recipes. The book is packed with clear, simple, Swedish-inspired recipes that include such delights as baked eggs in avocados (perhaps the ideal breakfast food) and a classic, creamy chocolate cake that happens to be made without gluten.

Other sections include planning guides for key life activities like shopping by bicycle, making your own bags to use for produce and bulk goods, hosting a successful dinner party, and setting off for an impromptu picnic without breaking your champagne glasses in your bike pannier. All recipes in the book are vegetarian and gluten-free, many are vegan, and all are delicious, suitable for beginner cooks or those looking to branch out.

Pick up a copy of The Culinary Cyclist at Golden Gate! Please call 510-597-5023 or email esanders@oaklandlibrary.org with any questions. More info on Facebook
