Abilene library stirs up interest in cooking with new Cookbook Club

Amy Watterman is flexing her baking skills as she tries the 200 recipes in “Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook.”

As the manager of the Abilene Public Library’s Mockingbird Lane branch, she is hoping others might like such a food journey while sampling and socializing at the new Cookbook Club. 

Food is “a great way to bring people together, and especially people who enjoy cooking or baking, especially if you live alone, or if you’re just cooking for one or two people,” Watterman said. 

Participants at each monthly meeting are to bring a dish centered on a theme. Appetizers is the subject for the inaugural club gathering at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 10 at the library branch, 1326 N. Mockingbird Lane. 

Preregistration is required. Participants must be 18 or older, and their dish must be based on a recipe from a library cookbook.

“The library has lots and lots of cookbooks,” Watterman said.
