Are you a fan of books? Do you love food? This is the club for you! What is a cookbook club? Discuss a specific cookbook, while tasting and sharing dishes prepared from the book. Think traditional book club with yummy food!

Wheeler Library Cookbook Club
Thursday evenings once a month from 6pm – 730pm. First meeting is February 7th and we’ll be trying recipes from Against all grain: delectable paleo recipes to eat well & feel great. Copies are available now.

Each month we will choose a different cookbook to focus on, and copies will be made available for checkout at the desk. Please sign up at the library. Choose a recipe, bring your dish and some serving utensils. We’ll have paper plates and cutlery, or bring your own. Recipes should be ready to eat, as we will not be able to cook or heat on-site. For this reason, dishes served cold or room-temperature may be ideal.

Sponsor the Irish Fest here – thank you for helping us with this special event.
