Cook the Book

Coming next Monday, February 1st, 2016, 12 -1 pm
Cook the Book!

Do you love browsing through cookbooks or trying new recipes and cooking techniques. We are very excited to introduce a new kind of book club – Cook the Book! This unique book group will bring together patrons who love food over a meal and conversation about cooking and recipes. Our introductory book for the season will be Voracious, by Cara Nicoletti. In it, Nicoletti marries her love of literature with her love of food in a truly tasty way. To participate, drop by the Library Circulation desk in mid-January to pick up a copy of the book. Participants will choose recipes from the book to prepare and share for the first meeting. Subsequent meetings will be themed according to the group’s choices.
