April 2022 Great Big Cookbook Club SummaryMarch 14, 2022 by Jenny
As our members know, each month we offer several cooking options in our Eat Your Books Cookbook Club. There are other fun cookbook clubs around the interwebs and we’d like to highlight those for those members who might want to cook or bake something other than our choices.
We want to get this information out to you so you can prepare and will update when we have any further details. If you have updates or information about any online cookbook clubs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with those details. Thank you.
I will be updating as clubs make their April announcements.
April is a author-centric month. April will be “semi free-for-all” month and allow many more of you a chance to cook along and share your experiences with recipes and inspire others. For April, you may share photos of any recipes from the following authors. We picked two authors from each major region. Be sure to list the recipe name, author and book/source for each posting in the EYBCC club so that we may approve your posts quickly. So pick your favorite authors and recipes and we can use April to regroup before adding any new titles to the mix.

From Hardcover Cook: “Claudia Prieto-Piastro is a Mexican food anthropologist living in London. Her cookbook club focuses on recovering recipes, books, authors and cuisines that have been forgotten by social media because they do not have pictures or enough marketing. Every month there is a “theme” rather than one book.”
Post to Instagram using hashtag #forgottenrecipescookbookclub and also tag moderator, @piastromexicankitchen.
Skordo (Greek for garlic) is a family owned business with two shops, one in Portland and another in Freeport, Maine. I am a frequent buyer of their spices and products. Their items are packed with care and once you tear into a box you are enveloped by a world of aromas and culinary possibilities.
Each month this group will feature a cookbook and invite members to cook along with readers and members of The Dish team to try new recipes, learn new skills and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes along the way. In this group, you’re encouraged to share your photos, tips and recipe tweaks. Journalists from The Sunday Times, authors and experts will be taking part from time to time, and your comments and photos could be featured in our publications.
