Monday, February 6, 6 p.m.
Our cookbook for February is Milk Street Cookish: Throw It Together by Christopher Kimball. Cookish is a fresh take on fast food at home using six ingredients with fresh, bold flavors for any night of the week.
This is how the club works: every month, pick up a copy of that month's cookbook selection at the Harmony Library. Choose a recipe to make and prepare it for the next month's meeting. We will sample each other's dishes and discuss our cooking experiences. If you would like to join the Cookbook Club, register below and then drop by the library to pick up a copy of the book.
Thursday, February 16, 6:30 p.m.
No registration required.
