Eat and Learn: Cooking Parties!
What is a cooking party?
Cooking parties are cooking classes with more - more information, more exploration, more fun!
Going beyond merely how to, we talk about the why, the significance, the culture, art, travel, relevant food issues of the day, famous chefs and cooks, influential cuisines, and any other kind of food talk you wish to engage in.

The August meeting: The American Table by Larry Edwards

From the back cover: True American food is the result of hearty people, bountiful farms, and innovative spirits. Chef Larry Edwards honors that tradition in The American Table as he invites you to pull up a chair and share a story or two. Flavors from every corner of the country are brought together in one soul-satisfying cookbook. Worthy of any diner's daily special board, these recipes are the real deal: wholesome filling favorites...that will transport you back to your grandmother's kitchen.

We will have three copies available for purchase by mid-July.

Appetizers and light fare available for purchase; wine and beer also available.
