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'll 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 Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters, and our recipe choice is "Onion Panade." Copies of the book are available at the Maze Branch Library one month prior to the discussion.
