Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library, located at 113 South Garfield Avenue, has many book discussion groups that meet at the library. At these meetings they discuss a book that they read during the month. We are going to step out of this cookie-cutter mold with a new book group, MPL Recipe Box, the cookbook discussion group that allows you to sample your way through a cookbook!
Do you love cookbooks or maybe just need new recipes to try? Have you ever checked out a cookbook and then didn’t have the time (or bravery) to try more than one recipe? If so, this is the book group for you.
Each month has a theme. For example, one month could be cookies and the next could be salads. For MPL Recipe Box, a few cookbooks will be set aside for participants to choose one recipe from that they will prepare for the discussion. All recipes for the discussion come from the chosen cookbooks. When you register, a librarian will make a copy of the recipe you choose and mark it so there are no duplicates. At our meeting, participants will bring their chosen recipe prepared and ready to share with the group.
All recipes for the discussion come from the chosen cookbooks. We will sample the dishes while we discuss ingredients, substitutions, helpful hints and the big question: would you make it again? Don’t forget to register for MPL Recipe Box. We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at varying times.
You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to participate. All skill levels are welcome. Beginners can learn from experienced cooks, and those with a lot of experience can show off their cooking knowledge as we eat our way through the culinary section of the library. Those who attend must be registered and bring a prepared recipe. Register every month because space is limited. Selected cookbooks, theme, and registration are at the Help Desk on the first floor. Our first meeting is November 4 at 7 p.m. and the theme is pie. For more information contact Becky Hadley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
