3:00 pm - Librarian’s Choice Book Club: Cookbook Edition!

May 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a book club? Are you curious about what your favorite librarians are reading? Join us every fourth Wednesday for our Librarian’s Choice Book Club. Each month, one of our librarians will choose a different book from a different genre and host a casual discussion with light refreshments.

For the Month of May, Janice has chosen Baking Yesteryear: The Best Recipes from the 1900s to the 1980s by B. Dylan Hollis . Copies are available at the front desk. 

Special instructions for this month’s book club: look through the book and see what inspires you. Pick something to bake and bring it in to share with the group! 


About the Book:

A decade-by-decade cookbook that highlights the best (and a few of the worst) baking recipes from the 20th century Friends of baking, are you sick and tired of making the same recipes again and again? Then look no further than this baking blast from the past, as B. Dylan Hollis highlights the most unique tasty treats of yesteryear. Travel back in time on a delicious decade-by-decade jaunt as Dylan shows you how to bake vintage forgotten greats. With a big pinch of fun and a full cup of humor, you’ll be baking everything from Chocolate Potato Cake from the 1910s to Avocado Pie from the 1960s. Dylan has baked hundreds of recipes from countless antique cookbooks and selected only the best for this bakebook, sharing the shining stars from each decade. And because some of the recipes Dylan shares on his wildly popular social media channels are spectacular failures, he’s thrown in a few of the most disastrously strange recipes for you to try if you dare. A few of Dylan’s favorites that are going to have you licking your lips and begging for more include: – 1900s Cornflake Macaroons – 1910s ANZAC Biscuits – 1930s Peanut Butter Bread – 1940s Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake – 1950s Tomato Soup Cake – 1970s Potato Chip Cookies Baking Yesteryear contains 101 expertly curated recipes that will take you on a delicious journey through the past. With a larger-than-life personality and comedic puns galore, baking with Dylan never gets old. We’ll leave that to the recipes.
