Cook the Book: A Book Club with Taste


For people to discuss & share their (culinary) adventures

June 24, 2017 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm is Cakes, Tarts, and Breads.

How does Cook the Book work?

  1. The interested person registers for the program. This event is open to cooking enthusiasts of all ages.
  2. The registrant selects a recipe from one of four pre-selected cookbooks from the Grundy collection. The books are available on the bookcase behind the Service Desk.
  3. Staff photocopies the registrant’s recipe selection twice, giving the registrant a copy and keeping a copy for the Library. The selected recipe is labeled with a name and telephone number and placed in the Cook the Book folder.
  4. Registrant makes one recipe for the Saturday meeting, enough to share a taste with others; there is no need to double or triple a recipe. Please bring your own serving utensils. The library will provide plates, bowls, napkins, eating utensils, etc.
