"Eating together from the same bowl establishes a communion, a pact of peace among individuals."  - Dr. Raymond Johnson 

THE COOKBOOK CLUB SUNDAY DINNER brings together people who like to cook and want to explore foods of the African Diaspora.

We are interested in how communities grow, harvest, and share food.  For each Sunday Dinner we have a host, pick a theme, select a cookbook, choose recipes, and hold a conversation while we share a meal of the prepared dishes. We are also flexible with those who rarely use cookbooks, follow family recipes or draw from web-based sources. Either way you prepare the dish and bring it to the dinner to share.

In 2024, we added a new twist - Read + Cook + Talk + Eat!  "Read" means reading a food-related book that feeds the mind, body, and spirit. In partnership with BEM Books & More, you'll receive a 20% discount on the purchase of the book selected. Click on the skillet in the "Dinner Date" box to send us an email to find out about the promocode. 

After your dinner we'd love for you to send pictures of your event with a short summary that captures your location (city/state), how many participated, your theme, and conversation highlights.

We're excited for you and other fellow lovers of the African Diaspora to join us on this cultural exploration of glorious dinners, exquisite tastes, and a host of brand new friends.*
