Cookbook Club

Thursdays, 6 pm

When we explore a cookbook, it’s potluck meets book discussion! Sign up at the Reference Desk, pick a tasty recipe from our enticing selection (we’ll keep track to avoid duplicates), and prepare it for the program. We’ll sample lots of good food, talk about what worked and what didn’t, and select future cookbooks.
