Sara’s Weeknight Meals: Season 08

Episode 807: Cooks and Books

There are cooking clubs and there are book clubs: this one is both. Each month this Napa, California club picks a cookbook from which to sample recipes at a pot luck dinner at a member’s house. Sara joins to make two versions – Chicken with Prunes, Almonds and Olives and Shrimp Tikka with Mango Chutney. We’ll also visit a unique mens only cooking club – the Barbecue Pit Boys.
