Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes or cooking techniques? Do you enjoy sampling and sharing new dishes? Then hang onto your spatula! The Ligonier Valley Library is happy to introduce its newest book club, "Food for Thought." We pick the cookbook, you pick and make a recipe!
Next Meeting: Monday, December 1, at 7:00 pm
It's cookie month! Please back and bring 6 doz. cookies.
Try a recipe from the selected cookbooks or bring a copy of your favorite cookie recipe to share with the group.
Don't forget to register your selection at the library before the meeting
so we have a nice variety to taste and exchange.
You don't have to be a gourmet chef to participate in Food For Thought. This is the perfect opportunity for novices to challenge themselves and learn from more experienced cooks, and for experienced cooks to show off and share their amazing skills. The cookbook club is free and open to the public.
How the cookbook club works: Every other month, a cookbook will be selected and put on display at the main circulation desk. You pick a recipe that piques your interest (or taste buds). A Post-it note with your name will be used to mark the recipe in order to keep track of who is making what and also to keep members from choosing the same dish. Before you leave, a member of the library staff will make a copy of your recipe for you to take home. Prepare your recipe, then bring it to the meeting to share with other participants. It's that simple!
Things to note...
- Please bring your own place setting (plate, silverware) for each meeting. Coffee will be provided.
- You should make and bring one regular-size recipe - enough that everyone gets a taste. There is no need to double or triple recipes.
- Recipes should be prepared at home prior to the meeting. The library kitchen has a microwave and an oven that can be used for re-heating if necessary.
- Pre-registration prior to each bi-monthly meeting is required. The club is free and open to the public.
