Cookbook Club: Helen Evans Brown

Saturdays 9/29 from 10:30am to 1:30pm

New School of Cooking Pasadena

Each month we discuss a significant cookbook and prepare a group meal adapted from its recipes. Here’s what’s on the Cookbook Club menu this month:

The West Coast Cook Book by Helen Evans Brown, 1952
With its push for using local, fresh ingredients, Helen Evan Brown’s West Coast Cook Book laid the foundation to what became known as California cuisine. Brown gave historical context and social significance to her recipes, transforming cookbook writing into a scholarly endeavor. Her 500-volume collection of California cookbooks were acquired by the Huntington Library in 1983. ($115)

Sign up for all three fall Cookbook Club classes at a discounted rate of $330.

Classes meet at New School of Cooking’s Pasadena campus.
525 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena 91101

Though reading the book prior to each class date is not necessary, it is available for sale here.
