As a way of providing added value to its ratepayers during the holidays, CUD has developed a free, downloadable cookbook. For residents who may wish to prepare more of their meals at home and avoid potential exposure to colds and viruses in crowded restaurants, the cookbook offers a variety of options.
“Most folks probably aren’t expecting dozens of fun recipes from a water utility, so we figured this would be a nice surprise,” said Ivy Brown, Administrative Assistant at CUD and designer of the utility’s holiday cookbook. “We had developed a cookbook four years ago, but it was mainly meant for our own employees. We want to share this year’s edition digitally with all our ratepayers.”
Inside CUD’s digital cookbook are recipes for 11 entrees, nine side dishes, and 20 desserts. The recipes range from holiday-themed foods – such as decorated pretzels – to dishes that provide a change of pace, like baked ziti. All of the recipes were contributed by Board members, staff members, and employees in Engineering, Maintenance, Finance, Customer Service, and at the water treatment plant.
