Adult Program

What's Cooking?

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats! This month's selection is The Country Cooking of Ireland by Colman Andrews, and our recipe selection is Leek Pie. Copies of the book are available at Maze one month prior to the discussion.
