May 2024 Great Big Cookbook Club Summary

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 with those details.

I will update as clubs make their May choices. You will note a few clubs below haven’t been updated – I keep checking on those but nothing new.
