Cook the Book: The Series
The Local Palate's Virtual Cooking Club
Cook the Book is a quarterly, virtual cooking club featuring the South's best cookbook authors.
Join us for this intimate, ticketed series where you can pull up a chair, pour a glass of wine, and cook along and hang out with your favorite Southern chef authors.
These intimate, 40- to 50-person Zoom events will introduce guests to notable Southern cookbook authors.
The ticketed series will bring the audience straight into the kitchen with each author and will include a Q&A as well as a demo of 1 to 2 recipes from their latest cookbook.
Held weeknights starting at 6 p.m. ET, the 60 to 90 minutes classes will also be recorded so ticket holders don’t have to miss out on the action.
Chef Maneet Chauhan knows how to weave a good story. At her Nashville restaurant Chauhan Ale & Masala House, she tells stories on the plate, through the bright, fragrant, and diverse range of Indian dishes she serves. In her book, Chaat (Clarkson Potter), Chauhan fills the pages with stories that pay tribute to her home country, and specifically, its fascination with chaat, the "sweet, salty, spicy, crunchy, creamy, hot, and cold snacks— street food, really — found in Indian markets, train stations, and home kitchens."
Cookbooks will be available for purchase through our e-commerce site, The Local Palate Marketplace and recipes will be sent to guests in advance. We’ll also field questions through the chat function so that guests can jump in while they cook.
Stay tuned for further participating chefs and dates!
