The ladies introduce how they started their cooking club and give guidelines
This is more of a cooking club guide although there are recipes and ideas for mainly international theme parties. There are tips throughout, i.e. how to hold a successful party. The book itself is small, but the recipes are easy to read with the exception that they continue from page to page, so that many times you have to turn the page to finish a recipe. The book itself can also be somewhat hard to hold down so that you can work on the food without holding the book itself. They are not simple comfort food, but not all that difficult to prepare.
This would be a book for those who do want the instructions to form a cooking club, or some ideas for internationally themed dinners.
This cookbook is primarily about getting together and cooking and sharing with others who have like cooking interests. The cover only shows two women clearly and the rest are completely hidden by wine glasses and arms. The predominent center is just a grouping of wine glasses and background trees. Whoever Rosebud Eustace is should be fired. This cover will keep people from buying this book because they'll think it's just a wine club cookbook when it fact that's completely opposite. This is a great cookbook so don't let the cover mislead you, it really has nothing to do with wine.
There are 12 parties planned, one for each month. The parties are: Breakfast and Egg-citing Conversation, Delicious Foods of New Orleans, India one spice at a time, Spring has Sprung, Greece is the word, the Grill of Victory, Sunday Italian Dinner, Hawaiian Luau, One Night in Bangkok, Autumn Leaves, Holy Mole, Fuzzy Slippers and Comfort Foods.
The premise is you get 8 like minded cooks and either everyone cooks together at the hosts' house or you divide up the recipes and bring each dish potluck style to the host house. There is usually one cocktail recipe for each menu.
There are lots of good ideas for setting up your own cooking club, by-laws and other necessary information so nobody gets stuck with a big chunk of the tab and the meals are fairly distributed among each person.
There are also stories about other cooking clubs around the world.Read more ›
