There’s a new book club at Hamilton-Wenham Public Library that will focus on cookbooks.
The first meeting of the Cookbook Bookclub on Tuesday, Jan. 12 will focus on Rachael Ray.
This new group will meet at 11 a.m.. and plans monthly meeting to explore a chef or particular theme. Participants will prepare an appetizer, main course or dessert from the chef’s recipes.
The group will just be tasting each dish and not eating a whole portion per person.
Ray, the focus of the first meeting, is author of over 25 books in addition to being an Emmy-winning TV star. Her focus is primarily on fast results, with many books featuring 30 minute recipes. Her latest book is Everyone is Italian on Sunday, but a dish from any of her books, magazines or website can be shared at the meeting.
Anyone who plans to participate should RSVP with a chosen dish to Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-468-5577 by Thursday, Jan. 7.
