Cookbook Club meets on Wednesday November 8th at 7:00pm.
Bring your finished dish to Book Club, and sample everyone’s delicious foods while discussing the topic. Selected cookbooks will be on display at the Library at least two weeks prior to the club meeting. Come browse and pick a recipe to make.
Time to get creative in the kitchen this Fall! This month we’ll choose recipes that feature fragrant spices, in both sweet and savory dishes. Spice doesn’t need to mean heat, so have fun creating a warm and cozy dish for this chilly day!
Mighty Spice Cookbook – John-Gregory Smith
Spices have been used in kitchens for thousands of years and they are as relevant today as they have always been. However, many people find spices confusing and equate them to endless shopping lists or old jars sitting in their kitchen cupboard. Mighty Spice will change these misconceptions and show everyone how simple it is to cook with spices.
Olives, Lemons, & Za’Atar – Rawia Bishara
Tangy lemony tabbouleh, smoky, rich baba ghanouj, and beautifully spiced lamb shank. The recipes in ‘Olives, Lemons & Za’atar‘ provide something irresistible for every occasion. These dishes represent the flavours of Rawia’s Middle Eastern childhood with recipes copied faithfully from family cookbooks (her mother’s most treasured harissa), and then developed with a creative flourish of her own.
The Cafe Spice Cookbook – Hari Nayak
This book provides you with all the instructions you’ll need to prepare healthy Indian dishes anywhere and anytime, using ingredients available at any supermarket or health food store.
The New Sugar & Spice – Samantha Seneviratne
Collects more than eighty unique dessert recipes using exotic spices, including chile-chocolate truffles, cinnamon toast bread pudding, Indonesian spiced layer cake, crêpe cake with pistachio cream, and fig and fennel seed biscotti.
