COOKBOOK CLUB

A cookbook club is a combination of a lot of good things. It is kind of like a book club, kind of like a potluck dinner, but together. Everyone gets to try new foods and talk about it. Stop by the Harris Center to browse the cookbook and pick out your recipe. You will bring your dish for everyone to sample and discuss. Please make enough for ten people. Winter Cookbook: Big Love Cooking: 75 Recipes for Satisfying, Shareable Comfort Food Spring Cookbook: The Blue Zones Kitchen: 100 Recipes to Live to 100
