Cookbook Club
Tuesdays, Jan. 14, Feb. 11, and March 10 at 6:30 pm
Do you like to cook and talk about food? Do you love to read cookbooks, but often don’t have the time to make all those delicious recipes? If you answered “yes” to either of those questions, then our new Cookbook Club might be for you! Cookbook Club meets once a month to share a potluck style meal. All you have to do is make a recipe from the chosen cookbook!
January 14 we will cook from One Pan Wonders by America’s Test Kitchen
February 11 we’ll cook from Skillet Love by Anne Byrn
March 10 we will cook from Half Baked Harvest Super Simple by Tieghan Gerard
Copies of the books are available at the desk. Please let us know which recipe you’re making so we can avoid duplicates by emailing bperry@cwmars.org. 
In addition to tasting everyone’s dishes, we’ll also discuss the cookbook overall, which recipes we’d make again, and which ones we’d skip or adjust. 
Please, no alcoholic beverages (even if there’s a recipe for one in the book). And, as per Massachusetts state law regarding potlucks, please be advised: Neither the food nor the facilities have been inspected by the state or by a local public health agency.
