Traced Elements has partnered with Stay Wild Natural Health to create Cook Book Club Pemberton, a monthly community potluck that revolves around a single featured cookbook.
It’s like bookclub where you don’t have to read a book. A dinner party where you only have to prepare one dish. Collaborative entertaining.
The point of Cookbook Club is to enjoy yourself. Make it easy, make it fun; we’re here to judge the cookbooks, not each other. – Tara Austen Weaver, Serious Eats
You make a shareable plate, from the selected cookbook, and show up, to Stay Wild, at 7pm, on the designated date.
You meet a bunch of other people, sample a bunch of other dishes, and decide whether the cookbook is for you or not.
No cost. No stakes. No pressure.
A fun, free, social night out. A community potluck.
Bring your own napkin, or nibbling plate. It’s a Zero Waste event, so that Stay Wild will want to continue to host us!

“Cookbook clubs are the new potlucks. The idea of sharing the work involved in having people over for dinner is sweet, but too often means eating a disjointed dinner that circled the globe, with samosas, shepherd’s pie and chow mein all on one plate.
A club allows members to create a unified menu of dishes from an agreed-upon cookbook. We spread out the work, then enjoy a cohesive meal together, socializing and comparing notes, collectively reviewing the book.” – Andrea Chu, the Globe and Mail
