Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes or cooking techniques?
Join fellow foodies for our Cookbook Club. You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to participate.
Each month we will get together to talk about a certain book, theme, or a celebrity chef.
There will be food samples or activities at every meeting. A selection of cookbooks will be available for members to borrow.
Browse our collection, try out some of the recipes, and join the group to discuss your successes and mishaps.
