Travel The Culinary World A-Z

There’s a great new resource on our library webpage. We’ve added AtoZ World Food to our online reference offerings. This new library resource contains more than 7,000 traditional recipes from 174 countries, along with thousands of ingredient, food culture, and reference articles, making it the largest

food database of its kind. 

“Cookbooks from different cultures and countries are very popular at the library; but in the past, we’ve never been able to offer a cookbook for so many countries of the world. We’re very excited to offer this database to our patrons,” said Karen, director at Cambridge City Public Library.

According to the library, anyone can access AtoZ World Food using the library’s computers, or from anywhere in the world from the library’s portal at, then sign in with with their library card. “World Food” also enables users to forward recipes to friends by email and even create their own personal cookbook of favorite recipes.

AtoZ World Food was designed for culinary institutes, students, world travelers, cooking clubs, adventurous eaters, and anyone who wants to learn about world cuisine without having to purchase individual country cookbooks. Offering AtoZ World Food, a product of World Trade Press, is an example of the Library’s mission to deepen its coverage of topics that are of interest to its diverse population of patrons.
