MISSION VIEJO, CA — The City of Mission Viejo invited residents this week to share their treasured recipes for the Mission Viejo Community Cookbook. and take part in two free programs associated with the project.

Community members are also encouraged to attend two free programs associated with the project.

The first program takes place March 2 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and was described as a “recipe binder do-it-yourself program” by the city. The second program takes place on March 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will focus on teaching attendees how to craft their own narrative.

Residents who wish to take part in the programs can visit the city library’s Storytime Room.

Attendance at the writing workshop is not mandatory for recipe submissions, the city said, but is encouraged.

Residents who submit will have their recipes incorporated in the city’s cookbook, which is set for publication this summer.

Selected participants will also have their dishes professional photographed and included in an exhibit at the Norman P. Murray Community Center, with an exhibit reception on June 29.
