September 2019 EYB Cookbook Club Summary

This has been a busy month in our cookbook club!

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:

And, desserts are still being churned out in our second group that is working through Ottolenghi’s Sweet.

The photos below are just a few of the beautiful shots our members have been sharing; visit each group for more inspiration. Do not forget to also upload your photos and add your notes to your bookshelf at Eat Your Books. Instructions on uploading your photos and links to other helpful articles can be found here.

    Are there public archives of the various clubs’ activities? Lots of these dishes are of interest, if not right now, then for later.
