Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Do you
enjoy sampling and sharing new dishes? Part potluck, part discussion,
the Palisades Free Library Cookbook Club is for you!
Here's how it works: 1) Stop by the Reference Desk to sign up and pick out a recipe from this month's cookbook starting on March 23, 2017. 2) Library staff will make you a copy of the recipe you select, or you can check out a copy of the cookbook to take home. 3) Prepare the recipe at home and bring it in on the night of the meeting to share with other participants while we discuss the cookbook and enjoy wine selected by the experts at The Grape D'Vine with your meal.

April's Cookbook: Small Victories: Recipes, Advice + Hundreds of Ideas for Home Cooking Triumphs by Julia Turshen. "I can't wait to cook my way through this amazing new book," Ina Garten
writes in the foreword to this cookbook of more than 400 recipes and
variations from Julia Turshen, writer, go-to recipe developer, co-author
for best-selling cookbooks such as Gwyneth Paltrow's It's All Good, Mario Batali's Spain...A Culinary Road Trip, and Dana Cowin's Mastering My Mistakes in the Kitchen.
The process of truly great home cooking is demystified via more than a
hundred lessons called out as "small victories" in the funny,
encouraging headnotes; these are lessons learned by Julia through a
lifetime of cooking thousands of meals. This beautifully curated, deeply
personal collection of what Chef April Bloomfield calls "simple,
achievable recipes" emphasizes bold-flavored, honest food for breakfast,
lunch, dinner, and dessert.
