The Nantucket Holiday Table was delicious!

Today was the second meeting of Cookbook Club.  Fourteen people gathered to share everything from Maple Syrup Baked Beans to Cranberry Crunch.  Thank you to all the cooks.  We talked about what worked well and not so well. Members also shared how they altered some of the recipes and the results. Several people made suggestions for future cookbook titles.

First meeting of the Cookbook Club a hit!

Our first meeting of Cookbook Club this past Tuesday was fun and delicious!  There were 17 people who attended and shared a dish from The Spices of Life!

The author of the cookbook, Nina Simonds, gave a great presentation about how she traveled to Taipei at the age of 19 in 1975 to learn classic chinese cooking.  She then went on to correspond with Julia Child and traveled to France to learn even more about cooking.  

Be sure to join us for the December 9th meeting at the Fowler Branch Library in West Concord. Required registration starts on Wed., November 25th.  Copies of the next cookbook, The Nantucket Holiday Table by Susan Simon will be available at both libraries starting on November 25th.
