Cook the Book: Brunch Basics

Plano Public Library is Bringing Back Brunch this April, in our latest meeting of Cook the Book!

Cook the Book is a monthly foodie meeting of the stomachs with Plano Public Library. Each month has a theme, and for April we’re doing brunch! Once you register for the event, be sure to prepare something delicious to “share” virtually with others, including the recipe. Cook the Book meets on Tuesday, April 20 at 1 p.m. via Zoom.
