Southern Eats at the Library

Love to cook and want to share with others? Join us at Cook the Book!

Cook the Book meets monthly at Davis Library at 1 pm, each with a different food theme.

Cook using a recipe | Bring a sample | Discuss

How Cook the Book club works:

  1. Stop by Davis Library to pick a recipe from a collection of thematic cook books (October’s theme is Savoring the South)
  2. Ask a library staff member to make a copy of the recipe for you
  3. Prepare your recipe (write down anything you may have changed or your own suggestions!)
  4. Show up at Davis Library with your food to share with others
  5. Repeat monthly
