Maybe you are in a cooking rut and don't know how to start expanding your cooking repertoire.

Then we have got just the club for you!

Decatur Public Library is now hosting a Spice Club.

Each month a new spice and recipes will be featured. We will provide a Spice Pack which will include:

  • Information and history of each featured spice
  • Recipes from AtoZ World Food database
  • Pre-measured featured spice for the recipes that month

How to Join:

  1. On August 1, 2021 signups will begin online for our August meeting. Programs are now in person, but a ZOOM option is available. Please indicate if you need the ZOOM link at registration.
  2. The week of August 16 registrants will be able to pick up their "Spice Pack" for the month.
  3. Before the first meeting, registrants can try one or all of the recipes included with the spice pack.
  4. Our meeting will be on Tuesday, August 24 at 6 pm where the club will discuss the recipes (pros and cons) and extra cooking tips/tidbits.
