Cookbook Book Club

You're on our website, so you must like books, right? We bet you also like food, too, because hey, who doesn't? That's why we're launching a new kind of book club here at Island Books. Each month we're going to feature a different cookbook and then, near the end of the month, get together to taste the dishes we've made from it. A festive potluck meal, in other words, and we'll supply the drinks. Since we're talking recipes, here are the step-by-step instructions for participating:

  • You come into Island Books ahead of time to buy a copy of the featured cookbook.
  • Check out the recipes inside, test them at home, and find a favorite dish to share.
  • On the appointed evening, bring what you've made to Island Books.
  • Eat, drink, and be merry!

This month we're featuring the Short Stack editions, a series of small-format cookbooks authored by America’s top culinary talents. Each edition is a collectible, single-subject booklet packed with recipes that offer ingenious new ways to cook our favorite ingredients. Every title is printed on high-quality art paper with hand-stitched binding, and every booklet is a true pleasure just to look at. But they're also practical, covering ingredients that include eggs, honey, chocolate, fruits, vegetables, and more. You'll want to own them all.
