Calling all Julias, Bettys and Marthas: Cookbook Club in Loudoun County!

chefkate | Apr 3, 2012 02:03 PM

I'm a happily married working mom of 3 in my 30s and looking to start a cookbook club in Loudoun County - here's what I envision - if enough people are interested, let's start one!

Looking for like-minded fun-loving (wine-loving!) ladies who are pretty serious foodies to meet once a quarter or every other month, taking turns hosting a cookbook club. I'm thinking the hostess picks a cookbook a month or so in advance and each person makes one recipe from the cookbook, either in advance or partially in advance or at the cookbook club meeting depending on complexity, and brings a bottle of wine that goes with it. We'll all get together to taste the various recipes from the cookbook, talk about the ingredients and techniques, the wine pairings, and just have a fun night with some amazing food and hopefully some fun new local girlfriends! No need to buy the cookbook if you don't want to - most Loudoun libraries have a fantastic selection, and we can all share if someone already owns the book.

So who's ready to up their cooking ante? :)
