The new #foodiebookclub at #sbpl14:
Bite Club is a new book club for people who love to talk about cooking and/or eating! Each month we will discuss a new food theme and its corresponding cookbooks. Meetings will take place on the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 8:30 in our Cafe (make two sharp rights after you enter the Library).
This is how it works: Starting the 15th of the month, come to the Information Desk in the library to choose and take out ONE of the cookbooks we have set aside for you. At home, peruse it, cook from it and and then come to the meeting on the following third Tuesday of the month to share your opinions and experiences. (Return your book, and you can pick up the following month's selection at the Tuesday meeting.)
If you wish, bring in something you've made to the meeting; but please, don't feel obligated to bring something. We just want you and your opinions to be there as a part of our "foodie" community! We will provide a "bite" of something that we have made and you can weigh in with your instant review of what you're tasting. If you can, photograph your creations and we may post them on our blog. If we have time, we may demonstrate a cooking technique or tip.
This book club is for you if you love talking about (thinking about, obsessing about?) good food.
