Join us for a new cooking class meets book club series that will be hands-on and in-person for those who love to cook at home.
During the class, participants will assist in creating a pre-selected dish from the chosen cookbook of the month. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to check out the selected cookbook ahead of time and to bring an accompanying dish from it to share.
Registration for this event is required with a limit of 10 participants.
