For Canada’s 150th anniversary, OPL celebrated storytelling in all its forms as a way to connect people and inspire learning about our communities and the many stories we have to share. Recipes are a great way to share stories that involve the food we cook and eat.

Hello Elizabeth! Unfortunately, we don't see the second submission either! Our technology services are investigating. Is there a way you could just email your recipe and your picture to alacarte@biblioottawalibrary.ca?
