When you think of March holidays, St. Patrick’s Day may be the only one that comes to mind. Well, I’m not Irish, so I felt the need to explore holidays I could rally behind… with food. The InfoTrac Culinary Arts Collection proved to be the perfect source!
Feel free to share these images and the links to the InfoTrac articles and recipes with your library users on social media. Lure them in with food!
