Testers & Tasters Cookbook Club in the Library

Testers & Tasters Cookbook Club in the Library Online

Testers & Tasters Cookbook Club is a place to talk about food and cooking!

Come share your experiments, experiences, triumphs, and tragedies.

Each month we highlight a theme, ingredient, or cookbook and encourage everyone to prepare a dish to share and discuss. If you don't get a chance to cook a themed dish come join us anyway! In August we plan to meet in person, but if you prefer you can Zoom in instead.

For our August 17th meeting we'll be exploring the recipes of cookbook author and television chef Ina Garten, aka "The Barefoot Contessa." There will be a few of her books on reserve at the information desk at North Regional Library, but the library system has many copies of her books (including two ebook versions), so it should be easy for anybody to get a copy of one or more.

When you know what you'll be bringing, please email the name and source to etobias@dconc.gov.

If you'll be joining us via Zoom, please take pictures of the process and the finished product and email them to etobias@dconc.gov. If you're coming to the library, bring your prepared dish and any needed serving utensils. Plates, napkins, and silverware will be provided.

Questions? Email etobias@dconc.gov or call 919-560-0140.

Registration closes 24 hours before the meeting, but email me if you've missed the deadline and still want to come.

Happy Cooking to all!
