Taste of . . . is a bimonthly program led by Patti and Tony Davidson that focuses on a different theme every year. It meets at 6:00 p.m. in the library's large meeting room. Registration is required for this event. 

The program kicked off in 2022 with Taste of the Town, which featured local restaurant owners giving cooking demonstrations on dishes that could be found on their menus. The program then evolved into Taste of the World in 2023, where the Davidsons took you on a trip around the world by featuring recipes from various countries, such as Israel, Philippines, and the Caribbean. 

In 2024, Patti and Tony will take you on a trip through time with Taste of History. This program will feature recipes found around the world prior to the 1600s. The 2024 themes are: 

  • January: Ancient Egypt (Shakshuka & Zalabya)
  • March: Ancient Rome (Puls & Globi)
  • May: Ancient Greece (Epityrum)
  • July: Germany
  • September: England
  • November: China & Mughal Empire

The group is open to the public. More information can be found in the monthly newsletter.
