Culinary Center

The MCPL Culinary Center is a destination and resource for anyone interested in learning more about food and culinary entrepreneurship. The Culinary Center’s goals are to enrich our customers’ lives by teaching about and through food with culinary literacy programs, and to help launch and grow local businesses in the community through MCPL’s Culinary Incubator Program.
