May Cook the Book book club meeting

Wednesday, May 4th at 7:30 pm: Cedar Cove Cookbook by Debbie Macomber

Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Then this is the club for you. Each month we will select a cookbook and place copies on hold at the circulation desk. You will check out the cookbook and choose one recipe you would like to share. Each member of the club will make that recipe and bring what is cooked, baked, etc. to the meeting for all to try. First we all eat. After eating, we will rate the recipes and review the book.

Copies of the cookbook will be available for checkout four weeks before the meeting. Our next discussion and sampling will be on May 4th! We hope to see you there! Ask any staff member if you have questions. Please register.
