The Ruby’s Cookbook Club is a combination potluck and book club. Each month, we’ll discuss a new cookbook. Participants should cook a dish from the book (at least 6 servings). Drinks will be provided.

This month, we'll be discussing: REPERTOIRE, by Jessica Battilana, local author and San Francisco Chronicle columnist. Jessica will be joining us for the meeting and potluck! 

About Repertoire

Home cooks don't need dozens of cookbooks or hundreds of recipes. They just need one good book, with about 75 trustworthy, versatile, and above all, delicious recipes that can stand alone or be mixed-and-matched into extraordinary meals.

That's what Repertoire is: Real recipes, from real life, that really work.

After nearly two decades in the kitchen and writing about food, this is the way San Francisco Chronicle writer Jessica Battilana really cooks at home. These are her best recipes, the ones she relies on the most--for a quick weeknight supper, a special dinner party, when a friend drops by for a drink and a snack, for the chocolate cake that never fails. The knowledge, freedom, and flexibility that comes from cooking these recipes is all you really need in the kitchen.

With a salad for every season, pantry pastas, many meatballs, chewy cookies, and more, Repertoireputs the perfect dish for every occasion within reach.

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited! Please pick up your book (free for the first 10 Ruby members who sign up!) at The Ruby after May 1.
