Have any favorite dishes from childhood or treasured hand-me-down recipes from your relatives? Get ready to recreate them for the Family Recipes edition of Cook the Book, PPL’s culinary book club.
Cook the Book is a hybrid program: we’re meeting at Davis Library and via Zoom on Tuesday, November 15 at 1 p.m. Register for Cook the Book here, and choose whichever option is most convenient for you. You will receive a confirmation email that includes the Zoom meeting link, in case you want to join virtually. 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!
