Cooking Together

Do you enjoy cooking but you don’t have the space? Want to make some new friends that enjoy cooking? Want to bring a group to learn some new recipes? We’ll all be cooking together and sharing the meal.

March’s Cooking Together will explore Jane Coxwell’s “Fresh Happy Tasty”. Join in the kitchen while we make a Simple Avocado, Arugula, and Spinach Salad, Pale Ale and Shiitake Pasta, Baked Lima Beans, and Garlic Bread Stuffed with Italian Herbs. This is a hands-on evening of cooking with friends, perfect for a double, triple, or quadruple date with friends, or a girls night out. One of our Bookshop staff will facilitate the evening, but you get to make this your own! While we are not able to serve alcoholic beverages, you are welcome to bring your own for the evening. We are limited to 8 guests for this event, so sign up early!

Cost – $20
