    February’s Cookbook Club was cancelled due to weather.
    You can bring your February recipe to March’s Cookbook Club or choose something new!

    Do you enjoy flipping through cookbooks to decide what to make?

    Do you search through recipes for inspiration?

    Come join our monthly book club, featuring cookbooks!

    You do not need to be an experienced cook, just an enthusiastic one!

    To participate, register for the program and pick a recipe from this month’s cookbook. Make the dish on your own, and then gather for a feast. While we eat, we’ll discuss the cookbook, its recipes and the process of choosing what to make and how to make it. We will aim to evenly distribute the recipes among starters and sides, main courses, and desserts.

    February’s cookbook will be Baking with Dorie by Dorie Greenspan.


    About the Book

    From James Beard Award-winning and NYT best-selling author Dorie Greenspan, a baking book of more than 150 exciting recipes Say “Dorie Greenspan” and think baking. The renowned author of thirteen cookbooks and winner of five James Beard and two IACP awards offers a collection that celebrates the sweet, the savory, and the simple.

    Every recipe is signature Dorie: easy-beginners can ace every technique in this book-and accessible, made with everyday ingredients. Are there surprises? Of course! You’ll find ingenious twists like Berry Biscuits. Footlong cheese sticks made with cream puff dough. Apple pie with browned butter spiced like warm mulled cider. A s’mores ice cream cake with velvety chocolate sauce, salty peanuts, and toasted marshmallows. It’s a book of simple yet sophisticated baking. The chapters are classic: Breakfast Stuff Cakes Cookies Pies, Tarts, Cobblers and Crisps Two Perfect Little Pastries Salty Side Up. The recipes are unexpected. And there are “Sweethearts” throughout, mini collections of Dorie’s all-time favorites. Don’t miss the meringue Little Marvels or the Double-Decker Caramel Cake. Like all of Dorie’s recipes, they lend themselves to being remade, refashioned, and riffed on.
