And, get your cookbook now for the March book club meetup
Good Morning, Burlington!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our first-ever Hive Cocktail Hour last night at Common Craft. Candidates and voters enjoyed connecting with each other over a plate of yummy food and a beverage. To get your invite to the next Hive Meetup, upgrade your membership. Members also receive exclusive content like Roundups, In-Depth features, and columns like Bill Boivin’s Plants and Animals.
So far, 98% of Hive members have said they are somewhat satisfied (11%) or very satisfied (87%!) with their membership, and exclusive offerings will only increase in 2024. Oh, and here’s a reminder and convenient link to fill out our audience survey.
Yesterday, the Used Bookstore added 3 gift cards for our drawing, which will happen this Sunday! Be sure to get your info in before then.
Get Your Cookbook Now for the March Cookbook Book Club Meetup
If you enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, Burlington Public Library has the perfect club for you.
The Cookbook Book Club meets on the first Friday of every month. But members don’t just go to talk about food and cooking. They actually cook and bring a dish from the month’s cookbook for all to try. The first meeting was held on February 2, and the food, conversation, and company were wonderful, according to Marci Milesky.
Attendees not only shared their dishes; they also shared ideas and hiccups that came up when it was time to cook. Part of what made the meeting fun, according to Marci, was the variety of dishes they were able to try—including some dishes folks wouldn’t have tried on their own.
The club builds interest and openness for new dishes, techniques, and cuisines, and it provides a great opportunity to connect with others who share a love for cooking and food. Pick up your cookbook at the library circulation desk now for the next meeting, which will be on March 1. You’ll want plenty of time to look through the book and maybe even practice the recipe you plan to bring!
