LBPL Community Kitchen
The Community Kitchen, hosted by LBPL, welcomes all members of Long Beach and neighboring cities to share their cultures through food. We ask that patrons share recipes that call to the heart. All recipes will be translated and shared with the public in the four most-used languages in Long Beach: English, Spanish, Khmer, and Tagalog. Send us your recipes and join us as we learn more about our neighbors through the delicious treats that remind us of home.
Submissions are now open! Have questions? Contact Jessica Araiza, ESL Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send us your recipes!
Step 1: Submit your recipe
Send us your recipe by filling out the submission form in your preferred language.
Step 2: Submit a picture of the recipe (optional)
Send an email to email@example.com with:
- The subject line "Community Kitchen: [insert the name of your recipe]" (Example: Community Kitchen: Causa Limeña)
- Your name

Step 3: Stay tuned!
The translated recipes will be shared on the Library website later on. Until then, check out and download our sample recipes—submitted by our very own LBPL staff—to see how your recipe could be featured.
