You can learn how to make delicious soup from what you already have in your pantry and refrigerator on Saturday, January 13, at 2 p.m. in the Burlingame Public Library’s Lane Room. Anne-Marie Bonneau (pictured at right), author of “The Zero-Waste Chef: Plant-Forward Recipes and Tips for a Sustainable Kitchen and Planet: A Cookbook,” will demonstrate how easy it is to use a climate-friendly induction cooktop.

Admission is free, but space is limited and registration is required here.

Award-winning cookbook author, speaker, blogger, fermenter and sourdough baker Anne-Marie Bonneau went plastic-free in 2011 after learning about plastic’s devastating impacts on the oceans and their inhabitants. Through her social media platforms, website, newsletter, speaking engagements and book, she shows how reducing waste not only benefits the planet but also satisfies your taste buds, improves your well-being and boosts your bank account.

You can sign up here to try out an induction cooktop in your own home at no charge from Burlingame’s free loaner program.

This program is part of series called “Sustainable Living with BPL” funded through a grant administered by California’s state librarian. To find out about other upcoming sustainability programs, go to the library’s new sustainability page.
