Annual Summer Dinner & Cookbook Meeting


Each May our book group selects a food themed book or a cookbook for our June dinner meeting before breaking for two months over the summer. With everyone's busy schedules we've relegated the cooking to the wonderful culinary experts at Barbara Joe's Cookbook store, who host us in the shop amidst book stacks and their custom demonstration kitchen. Check-out bookstore owner, Barbara's pick list.

Titles To Tempt You

Gastronaut, by Stefan Gates. Adventures in Food for the romantic, the foolhardy and the brave. This book follows Stefans bold credo that dining should always become an experience to remember.  

An Omelette and a Glass of Wine, by Elizabeth David. When Penguin launched its classic cookbook series this book was one of the first to make the cut. A real classic!

Spooning: A Novel The Cooking Club Divas Turn Up the Heat, by Darri Stephens and Megan DeSales This one is being billed as "Like Water for Chocolate" meets "Sex & the City." A witty, entertaining tale about discovering the recipe for grown-up success: best friends, good food and, of course, a liberal splash of glamour and romance.
