Cookbook Club

Welcome to the Cookbook Club page!

We meet every couple of months and cook dishes from one cookbook and bring them in to eat together. We don’t have the ability to reheat food or keep it warm, so keep this in mind when choosing recipes. You’re responsible for bringing serving utensils, but we provide paper goods and utensils for eating.

Per Massachusetts state law we need to let you know that the neither the food nor the facilities have been inspected by the state or by a local public health agency.

Copies of the book are held at the circulation desk. To RSVP, email with the name of the recipe you want to make. We have a limit of 20 people and each person must bring a dish. If you want to bring a friend or family member, you each need to bring a dish. They don’t have to be complicated or fancy – any recipe from the book is fair game! (Except alcoholic beverages – sorry!)

Below is a list of all recipes claimed so far for the next meeting, which will be kept as up-to-date as possible.

A list of past books we’ve cooked from is on our Goodreads Cookbook Club Shelf.
