Thank you to everyone who joined us for the November meeting of the Cookbook Club to discuss Spice, by Ana Sortun. Nancy Alexanderson gave a wonderful presentation about herbs (Thank you, Nancy!), and we had a lively conversation about the recipes we made from the book. The food was incredible!

Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean, by Ana Sortun
We will discuss Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediteranean, by Ana Sortun, at our November 9th discussion. In addition, Nancy Alexanderson has generously agreed to give a presentation on cooking with herbs.
Thanks to the 25 people who cooked and shared their recipes from Joanne Chang's Flour, too. Emily Speagle gave the group a great biographical summary about Joanne and led a discussion on what went well and not so well. We're looking forward to cooking from The Art of Mastering French Cooking by Julia Child at the May 10th meeting. See you then!
Enjoy these photos of many of the dishes yesterday. (Courtesy of our Children's Librarian, Fayth)
Thank you to our Branch Librarian, Theresa, for taking this photo of the scrumptious salads we sampled today. All the salads were from Raising the Salad by local author, Cathy Walthers. Cathy talked about how she got started in cooking, food writing, and teaching. It was great to hear how her husband and son test all of her recipes before they are published in her books! Thank you, Cathy, for joining us!
Thank you to the 28 people who prepared the salads and shared them. For a list of all the recipes samples today please visit this site (scroll to the bottom).
