For the month of July, our Cookbook Club will be busy cooking through David Lebovitz's My Paris Kitchen. We can't wait to experience David's Paris without leaving the comfort of our kitchens—and we hope you'll join us. Read on for details on how to participate and get started with a few recipes from the book.
Are you new to our Cookbook Club? Here's a quick primer to get you up to speed:
1) Get the Book
Pick up My Paris Kitchen—either online or from your favorite local bookstore. Or, if you’re not ready to commit quite yet, check it out from your local library or borrow a copy from a friend.
2) Read & Cook
Rather self-explanatory, as this is one of the most important parts of participating in a cookbook club, right? If you’re not sure where to begin, take a page out of our Cookbook Editor Ali Slagle's playbook. When she reviews a cookbook, she reads through the entire introduction as well as 15 headnotes and recipes, and then cooks at least three recipes.
3) Share Your Opinions
We chat in our Facebook group all month long! Join the Cookbook Club here and post pictures of what you bake from the books and share reviews, too. Fill everyone in on what you thought of the dish (remember to share the recipe name and even the page number, if possible). You can share photos on Instagram as well, just remember to tag them with #f52cookbookclub.
Don't worry if you don't have a copy of My Paris Kitchen quite yet. We have a few recipes from the book to get you ready for the frenzy of French cooking ahead this month.
