Do you like to cook? Do you like to read cookbooks? Do you like talking to other people that like these things? Well then join the NoBo Cookbook Club!

Our November cookbook is Cravings; Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat by Chrissy Teigen.

Even the most celebrity-cookbook-skeptical reader will find it hard not to enjoy this tome from supermodel Chrissy Teigen. With self-deprecating wit and down-to-earth charm, Teigen posits herself as an enthusiastic home cook and passionate eater. —Publisher’s Weekly

During November we’ll post photos, thoughts, tweaks, and reviews of recipes in this cookbook. Both Andrew Bayne Memorial Library and Avalon Library will have copies of the cookbook available, and they will also happily order more for you!

You have to make dinner anyway! Join the NoBo Cookbook Club today!
