The Salt + Spine Cookbook Club

(plus what's cooking in other clubs)

Join an online cookbook club today! 

These digital networks come together every month to cook from a specific cookbook (typically one, but sometimes more under a theme), sharing photos and stories of what was incredible, what worked and what didn't, and what lessons they're taking away. (Some cookbook clubs meet in person, too; Serious Eats has even advocated for cookbook clubs as “the new way to entertain.”)

Check out which cookbooks are being featured this month, find links to join, and see an archive of selections below:
