Cook the Book: Out of the Box Lunches

What do you like to have for lunch? Let’s switch it up!

Cook the Book is a monthly foodie meeting of the stomachs with Plano Public Library. Each month, we celebrate a different theme. Next up is Out of the Box Lunches!

Cook the Book is a hybrid program: we’re meeting at Davis Library and via Zoom on Tuesday, August 16 at 1 p.m. Register for the Zoom meeting, and prepare something delicious to “share” virtually with others. For those meeting in-person, bring the finished dish so everyone can get a sample. Don’t forget the recipe!
