Cook the Book – Monday, March 25th from 12:15 to 2:45 PM
We’re trying something new — a chance to select a recipe from the library collection and share it with like-minded friends. This month our selected cookbook is Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast. The book will remain at the front desk where you may use it at the library to photocopy a recipe of your choice: appetizer, main dish, side dish or dessert. Then, bring your prepared dish and a serving utensil to the program room on Monday, March 25th, where you and other participants will have the opportunity to sample each other’s creation. The library staff will assist you in signing up for the event and provide you with a form to avoid two people preparing the same food. Advanced registration requested, please call the library to register – 899-4962.
