Cookbook Club Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Do you enjoy sampling and sharing new dishes? Part potluck, part discussion, the new Palisades Free Library Cookbook Club is for you! Enjoy a glass of wine with your meal, selected by the experts at The Grape D’Vine (located in Sparkill). Here’s how it works: 1) Stop by the Reference Desk to sign up and pick out a recipe from the cookbook. 2) Library staff will make you a copy of the recipe you select, or you can check out a copy of the cookbook to take home. 3) Prepare the recipe at home and bring it in on the night of the meeting to share with other participants while we discuss the cookbook. Questions?! Let us know!
