Cookbook Clubs are becoming the latest craze based on a simple idea of a group of people each choosing a different recipe from one cookbook and gathering to share the results, like a crowd sourced feast. It's a great way to sample many of the recipes in one sitting.  Plus, there's something magical when you join a group of unknown people and share food with one another. Conversations swirl maybe revealing those who secretly aspire to be great cooks, or those who just want to meet some new friends. Whatever the reasons, you will surely leave with a full tummy, knowledge of the best recipes in that cookbook and maybe a start of a new friendship or two. No cooking experience is needed; but you will be expected to bring a dish to the class event from the selected cookbook.
