When: Meetings are bi-monthly. The first meeting will be held on Monday, September 25th at 5:30-6:45pm in the Community Room.

What: A different cookbook will be selected by the group for each meeting. Members will choose a recipe from the cookbook to prepare and bring to a potluck meeting at the library. The group will discuss recipes, cookbooks, ingredients, cooking methods and styles and share delicious food with friends.

How it works: A copy of the selected cookbook title will be kept at the main circulation desk. Participants MUST sign up prior to the meeting, you will select a recipe from the book to prepare and bring to the next meeting.

  1. Use a post-it note to mark the selected recipe with your name (so we know who is making what and to prevent people from choosing the same recipe).
  2. Library staff will make a copy of the recipe from the cookbook for you to take with you. The cookbook itself is not available for circulation while it is a club selection.
  3. Once you have selected your recipe, register your name, phone, recipe title and cookbook page number on the register sheet provided.
  4. Bring your own place setting (plate, silverware) and drink for each meeting.
  5. You should make and bring one regular size recipe - enough that everyone gets a taste. There is no need to double or triple recipes.
  6. Recipes should be prepared at home prior to the meeting. The library kitchen has a microwave and oven that can be used for reheating if necessary.

The Cookbook Club is free and open to the public. Pre-registration prior to each bi-monthly meeting is required. There is a maximum of 12 participants, so sign up early!
