Good Taste Cookbook Club

The Heart of the Plate by Mollie Katzen is this month’s selection. Get Cooking: 150 Simple Recipes to Get You Started in the Kitchen by the same author is the alternate selection. 

Borrow a copy  from the library and make a dish from it to share. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month ahead. 

Please register through the library calendar, by phone, or by email and let Laurie know what recipe you’ll be trying so we don't have a lot of duplication in the dishes we'll sample on meeting night!

No need to double the recipe, as we will all just be tasting each other's recipes. New members are always welcome! If you borrow a cookbook but can't participate, please return the cookbook so someone else can check it out. Thank you!

Pro Tip: Don't eat dinner before the meeting. (You won't need to!)
