Cook with us! Join the latest in our popular series of cookbook groups, presented in collaboration with New York City’s renowned cookbook mecca Kitchen Arts and Letters.
Our group comprises passionate home cooks who each make the same recipe from one of our four featured cookbooks every week before gathering together online. Beloved cooking instructor Annette Tomei leads the discussion, offering guidance and tips as everyone shares their experiences.
Featured in this session are four seasonal, vegetable-focused cookbooks, two of them new this spring from celebrated British food writer Nigel Slater and renowned cookbook author Hetty McKinnon. All four books are filled with genius recipes for dishes celebrating the bounty of late spring and summer, from asparagus to zebra tomatoes. Join us!
