Do you like to experiment with new recipes and chat about your experiences? Come Cook the Books with us and test out the best recipes!


Get together with your fellow food-enthusiasts and put a cookbook to the test! Every month we’ll select a new cookbook from the NVDPL collection and you pick the recipe (or two!) you’d like to try out. At the next meeting, you’ll share your experience with the recipe: what worked, what didn't? Did you have difficulty with any of the ingredients? What would you do next time to make it better? Did it BOMB or is it now in your Favourites File? The Cookbook of the Month will be available at Capilano Library for you to photocopy the recipes you’d like to try— just ask at the Information Desk!


Next Meeting: Wednesday, March 22nd at Capilano Library from 2:00pm—3:00pm
Join us as we discuss the Oh She Glows cookbooks and blog of Angela Liddon. Oh She Glows Everyday will be available at the Capilano Library information desk, but discussion of recipes from her earlier book or blog is welcome.

All are welcome to join us for this drop-in club— there’s no registration required.
