What's Cooking?

Sunday, November 9, 2014 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

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 "French Women Don't Get Fat" by Mirielle Guiliano, and our recipe choice is Pumpkin and Apple Soup. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch one month prior to the event.
