Celebrate Brooklyn Park Cookbook

About the Cookbook

Celebrate Brooklyn Park’s rich potato history with our digital community cookbook, Cooking with Spud: Celebrate Brooklyn Park Community Cookbook!

Brooklyn Park farmers worked together to plant and harvest their potato fields; helping one another in times of hardship and celebration.  Today, Brooklyn Park residents do the same though in different ways. Then as in now, food plays a key role in human interactions. Food is a universal language; it brings people together, can bridge language and cultural differences, and is often a focal point during celebrations. The aim of this cookbook is to celebrate our city’s heritage as well as our diversity and the things that bring us together using food, specifically the potato.

For questions around the cookbook, please contact Eve Ericson or Jake Patton.
