What's Cooking?

Sunday, August 9, 2015 - 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 "Screen Doors and Sweet Tea" by Martha Hall Foose, and our recipe choice is Proper Fried Chicken. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch one month prior to the event.
