SOUTHINGTON - Do you enjoy browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Do you enjoy tasting new dishes? Then grab your apron and join the Southington Public Library’s new Cookbook Club.
The Cookbook Club meets monthly on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the library at 255 Main St. Guests are invited to check out a Southington Public Library cookbook on the monthly topic and then spend some time experimenting with it. People are encouraged to come to the program on the date posted, ready to share a dish and discuss their experience. If their experiments yield disastrous results, they are asked to bring a story to share about their “food flop.”
The following are the topics for the first three meetings:
On June 22, the Cookbook Club will discuss “fresh cooking with local produce.”
On July 20, the Cookbook Club will discuss “cool and refreshing summer salads.”
On Aug. 24, the Cookbook Club will discuss “Picnic Foods: Dishes to Make & Take.”
Participants are encouraged to go green - bringing their own plate, utensils and serving spoon.
Dishes should arrive ready to eat, as there is no kitchen facility on hand. Participants are also asked to bring 12 copies of their recipe to share.
Everyone who attends will receive a binder to store their cookbook club recipes.
Southington Public Library encourages all who attend to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Southington Community Services Food Pantry for those in need.
