“101 Ways to Make Kimchi.” “Low-Fat Mexican.” “Great Chefs of San Francisco.” When you look over your cookbook collection, do you see titles that you just don’t use? Well, don’t let those recipe collections continue to gather dust.
You can take them to a used cookbook swap set up for Saturday morning by the Twig Bookstore in conjunction with the Pearl Farmers Market and Melissa Guerra’s Tienda de Cocina.
The rules are simple, manager Claudia Sharp says. “If you bring one cookbook, you can take one cookbook; if you bring five, you can take five,” she says.
The swap will be in the studio space near the bookstore, located in the Full Goods Building at the Pearl Brewery, 200 E. Grayson St.. It will take place from 10 a.m. to noon.
At the same time, there will be a gathering of cookbook authors to sign new copies of their books, which will be for sale.
The lineup includes Michael Flores with “My Family, My Friends, My Food: Recipes Celebrating People and Food”; Susan Dunbar Snyder with the “New Braunfels Smokehouse Cookbook”; Pat Mozersky with “Cooking with Les Dames d’Escoffier”; Scott Cohen with “Texas Hill Country Cookbook”; and Guerra with “Tienda de Cocina Cookbook.” Cooking demonstrations using foods from the farmers market, which runs 9 a.m.-1 p.m., will also be offered.
Also at the Twig, at 10:30 a.m. that morning, dance lovers will be served with a sampling of “Coppelia,” the latest dance to be presented by the San Antonio Ballet Company. A storybook reading of the tale behind the dance will be presented for children and a pair of dancers will perform an excerpt.
