A Different Kind of Book Club meets monthly to explore a different book genre. This month we get even more different. For November, we focus on cookbooks. Give us an hour and you will leave with 20 great cookbook titles for gift giving this holiday season or to add to your home collection. Each of our special guests guides us through their favorite cook and baking books.
