November Offerings

When the cold, blustery weather of November knocks at the door, there's nothing more warm and inviting than coming to a Books to Cooks culinary event. For the remainder of November, we offer a selection of entertaining and informative gatherings.

On Thursday, November 24 at 6:30 p.m. we begin our holiday season with an evening to celebrate with Seasons of Veuve Clicquot. Guests will be treated to a divine evening of exquisite hors d'oeuvres and the finest bubbly in celebration of The Seasons of Veuve Clicquot: A Social Cookbook by Stephane Gerschel. Guests will each take home a copy of The Seasons of Veuve Clicquot and a small bottle of Veuve Clicquot to celebrate the holidays. This evening is sponsored by Marquis Wine Cellars. This event is $125.00.
