Do you like to roast?

I've just cataloged and perused the library's newest cookbook.   It's the latest from our friends at America's Test Kitchen.  If you like to roast, this is just the book for you. Hate to roast?  This is also for you since it has very clear, easy to follow directions.

It has mouth-watering photos on every page. It even has chapters on roasting fish, veggies, and fruit!  Happy Roasting! --Nathalie H.

Jacques Pepin worked for HoJo's?!

I'm almost finished listening to the audio book of The French Chef in America: Julia Child's Second Act.
It's a wonderful follow up to Alex Prud'homme's first book about Julia, My Life in France.  If you haven't read either of these books yet, I highly recommend them.  They're perfect for for foodies and biography lovers. 

I'm learning all kinds of juicy tidbits about Julia and her friends (Jacques Pepin was recruited to cook for Howard Johnson's in the early 60s.).  Who knew?!

Now I'm going to borrow a bunch of library DVDs of Julia's cooking shows!

New Cookbook club in the U.K.!

If you were at our March meeting, you may have chatted with two new club members, Olaf and Dom.  They live in Leeds, United Kingdom and were in Ipswich visiting family for a couple of weeks.

They took the time to cook and attend our meeting.  Then they went home and started their own Roundhay Cookbook Club.  Enjoy this photo of their first meeting (notice the nice touches absent from our club...the dog and bottles of wine)!  Olaf is on the far right.

Thanks to both of them and Linday Booy for sharing the photo.
