February 2021 Great Big Cookbook Club Summary

As our members know, each month we offer at least four 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. Please note the addition of Kitchen Arts & Letters, The Sunday Times Cookbook Club, and Stained Page News Book Club below.

We want to get this information out to you so you can prepare and we will update this post when we have any missing information.

KAL wrote: Each week, prior to meeting online, everyone cooks the same recipes from one of our four featured cookbooks. You master some sensational new recipes and skills and have fun discussing it all, gaining inspiration, and sharing experiences with others who love cooking as much as you do.

The books for this session are:

The Sunday Times Cookbook Club

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.

Stained Page News Cookbook Club – for more information visit here.

Great Jones Cookbook Club 

No announcement made for several months will continue to check.

    Such a great selection – but they all seem to be northern hemisphere cookbook clubs. Are there any in Australia that you know of?

    • Jenny  on  January 12, 2021

      Hello, EYB’s club always tries to feature a New Zealand or Australian author. I’ll do some research. So far I found a group that meets in Adelaide and I’ve updated the post with a few other clubs I’ve found that didn’t show up on my first search. I’ll update as I locate more – perhaps call your local cookbook stores and request if they know of any clubs – or see if they would like to start one (maybe a better thing to do after COVID is stopped).

    Thanks Jenny – I was really thinking more about online clubs. Not sure I can fit any more group meetings into my schedule. 😊

    • Jenny  on  January 12, 2021

      Yes, I figured that – but could find nothing like that after searching for an hour.

    Resolution made – no new cookbooks at least until the fall
    Resolution about to be broken – Julia Turshon’s new book “Simply Julia”

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
