Cookbook Club

Each month, registered participants choose and prepare recipes from the selected cookbook. We then gather together on a Thursday evening to share a potluck meal and discuss the cookbook. Registration is required. We continue to meet virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the pandemic, we invite you to use our digital resources to find downloadable books and magazines, as well as streaming video courses, about cooking, food, and food culture.

Current Month:

VIRTUAL October 15 at 7:30 pm: To celebrate fall, we invite you to try out a new soup recipe. Please prepare the dish and then join us via Zoom to discuss the recipe results. Registration is required.

Use our online catalog to select a cookbook for our contact-free checkout service. Alternatively, you may find a recipe using our Flipster Magazine subscription or other resource of your choosing.
