Cookbook Club

Welcome to the Cookbook Club page!

We meet every month and cook dishes from one cookbook and bring them in to share.

  • Copies of the book are held at the circulation desk. They are usually available in the week leading up to the previous meeting.
  • Registration opens the day after the previous meeting.
  • To RSVP, email with the name and page number of the recipe you want to make. It helps to also include a second or third choice because registration fills up quickly! You must choose a recipe to be registered.
  • We have a limited number of spots and each person must bring a dish. If you want to bring a friend or family member, you each need to bring a dish.
  • Dishes don’t have to be complicated or fancy – any recipe from the book is fair game! (Except alcoholic beverages – sorry!)
  • We don’t have the ability to reheat food or keep it warm, so keep this in mind when choosing recipes.
  • You’re responsible for bringing serving utensils, but we provide paper goods and utensils for eating.

Per Massachusetts state law we need to let you know that the neither the food nor the facilities have been inspected by the state or by a local public health agency.

Below is a list of all recipes claimed so far for the next meeting, which will be kept as up-to-date as possible.

A list of past books we’ve cooked from is on our Goodreads Cookbook Club Shelf.
