August 2019 EYB Cookbook Club

Check out what’s been cooking in our clubs and what our October through January options are!

We have an incredible community here at Eat Your Books that has flowed into our Eat Your Books Cookbook Club and Sweet Eat Your Books Cookbook Club, places where we share our successes and fails in cooking and baking from specific cookbook titles.

This month we’ve been cooking from the following titles:

    I read cookbooks like novels. I am able to imagine how the recipes will taste & what I will need to do to make it taste even better. My mom used to say that I must have been a chef in a previous life, because my natural cooking ability came early (before 8 yrs old & over 50 yrs ago) and way earlier than normal. Cooking is my creative outlet & how I express myself. I’m really glad to be a member of EYB.

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
