After a two-month respite for our chefs, the Harmony Library's Cookbook Club is refreshed and ready to cook up a storm! Our book for October will be The Complete Autumn and Winter Cookbook by America's Test Kitchen.
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.
