New DPL Club!

Do you love to cook? Do you like to try new flavors and recipes? OR 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
  • Two new recipes from AtoZ World Food database
  • Pre-measured featured spice for the two recipes that month

How to Join:

  1. On April 1, 2021 signups will begin online for our April meeting. A ZOOM link will be sent to registrants prior to the meeting.
  2. The week of April 12 registrants will be able to pick up their "Spice Pack" for the month.
  3. Before the first meeting, registrants will try one or both recipes included with the spice pack.
