Salt + Spine Cookbook Club

Dinner Party with Naz Deravian

Wed | Dec 31, 1969 | 4–4P PT


The Salt & Spine Cookbook Club is like a ‘regular’ book club…but with a very special twist. Each month we’ll focus on one cookbook, reading, cooking, and connecting about it on social media (see “Participate” below). The bonus is that every month we’ll get together live with the author for a Dinner Party. For now, the Dinner Party will be virtual (via Zoom). We look forward to the day when the club can meet in person at The Civic Kitchen.
We’re kicking off the Salt + Spine Cookbook Club with July 2020’s featured guest, Naz Deravian, and her cookbook, Bottom of the Pot: Persian Recipes and Stories. Join Naz, Brian Hogan Stewart of Salt + Spine, and other club participants for our Virtual Dinner Party, where you can cook along with the author (or just watch), then enjoy the opportunity to ask cooking questions and meet other cookbook lovers. Please join us!
