Cookbooks and Culinary Arts Resources

Cookbooks and Culinary Arts 
resources available through ACC Libraries

ACC Eastview (EVC) library has the most cookbooks because the ACC Culinary Arts program is at the EVC campus.  There are approximately 1,700 cookbooks in the EVC library.  See “Books” page on the library Culinary Arts Subject Guide for information such as award winning cookbooks (left side) and new cookbooks (center).  You can also search our catalog or browse the shelves.

Look at the “Books, eBooks, Audiovisual” page for a list of all culinary materials including books, DVDs, e-books and streaming videos and there is a separate list for new ones added this year. 

You will also find electronic resources and other resources on the Culinary Arts Subject Guide including Culinary e-books and audiovisual materials (DVDs, etc).

Did you know that you can request that any of these cookbooks be sent to another ACC library where you can pick it up at the campus library of your choice?  You do not have to be a Culinary Arts student to check out cookbooks.

Some of the most popular cookbooks:
·         The Bread Baker’s Apprentice
·         The Professional Chef
·         The Science of Good Food
·         Trailer Food Diaries: Austin, volume 1 and volume 2

Besides cookbooks there are also materials that support the Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Travel and Tourism programs beyond cookbooks.  You will also find more food science materials on the Chemistry Subject Guide and nutrition materials on the Nutrition Subject Guide.  Look at the Career Information Subject Guide also.  And, of course, ask a librarian if you need help.

Another benefit if you are at the EVC campus for lunch on Tuesday or Thursday – eat at the student restaurant.  See Culinary Subject Guide (top center) for details.
