Hello Well here is - I am French, living in London and passionate about cooking - not necessarily perfect good, but loving to cook and share :)
I also have a love for cookbooks themselves and usually have way too many recipes that I can actually do. Having a cookbook club solves that problem and is a lot of fun :) Each month, a book, blog or magazine is given for the next meeting. Each participant then chooses one recipe of the book and cooks the recipe (he can either tell the others or keep a surprise of what he is bringing - it is no problem bringing the same dish and fun to compare! )
We then can have a good time comparing expériences, what we thought about the book, the recipes, the anecdotes when we were cooking them....and make new friends along the way.
