Bibliobites is a book group with a culinary focus. We read a combination of cookbooks, culinary memoirs and Foodie fiction. We often pick a theme for a meeting and encourage members to try recipes related to the theme. We do not discourage members from bringing those recipes in for us to try! Bibliobites meetings are open to everyone, and meet the last Friday of the month at 11 am.
Please note: during COVID-19, all of our book groups are meeting online. Contact the group leader for access details.

- Bibliobites in September: TwoFer (10/23/2020) - Table for two….tea for two….like two peas in a pod….it takes two to tango. Coupledom is celebrated in our culture, but not so much in the kitchen.
