Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican forces over those of an invading French army in the City of Puebla, 1862. This particular event is celebrated in Puebla, and in the United States as a day of heritage and pride. It is that latter sentiment, one of heritage and pride, which inspires many area restaurants to offer special menus and festivities. If you prefer to prepare a meal yourself, though, consider picking up a title or two from our collection. Among that collection are the following:

Author: Long, Janet
Title: Food Culture in Mexico
Call Number: GT2853 M6 L66 2005

Use the MadCat catalog or speak with your librarians for assistance locating these and related titles. Should a title be checked-out to another library user, do consider a UW-System search or visit one of our area public libraries. Again, campus librarians are happy to help you find available copies.
