New! 2nd Tuesday Tastings: A Cookbook Bookclub!
Each month there will be a theme, idea, or chef to focus on. Participants will prepare an appetizer, main course or dessert; enough to serve 4-8. This is a tasting (we're not eating a full portion), so doubling the recipe shouldn't be necessary. RSVP with your chosen dish by the Thursday prior to Nancy: or 978-468-5577. Download the schedule here , or swing by the library for a copy. 
Rachael Ray Tue. Jan. 12 at 11:00, RSVP by Thur. 1/7. Author of 25+ books, 3X Emmy-winning TV star (+8 nominations), magazine editor and more. Her focus is primarily on fast results, many books feature 30 minute recipes. Ray's latest book is Everyone is Italian on Sunday, but a dish from any of her books, magazine or website will be great to share. Now, tell us about your dish!
