Cook the Book

A Book Club with Taste

Cook the Book series is a new book club for people to discuss and share their (culinary) adventures. Have you ever heard about a book club for foodies & foodie wanna-bes? Here are the details: visit the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street, register for the event, and choose a recipe from among the three books selected for the first discussion – barbeque and cook-out foods. Staff will photocopy your selected recipe, giving you a copy as a participant and keeping a copy on-hand to avoid duplication. You make one recipe and bring it to the book club meeting at the Library on Saturday, June 18, 2016 from noon to 2:00 pm. While you sample and taste the various foods, we’ll discuss all things pertinent to the recipe. The Library provides the plates, napkins & utensils. This is a great opportunity for cooks of all ages, skill levels and interests to share their love of cooking as well as eating. Register for this event online at www.grundylibrary.org, or by calling 215.788.7891. Registration is required.
