Cooking enthusiasts of all ages and experience levels – from beginners to advanced –find Fort Bend County Libraries’ monthly Cookbook Book Clubs a great way to share ideas and discover new culinary tips. Two library locations host Cookbook Book Clubs, and different cooking genres are explored each month.

The Culinary Book Club meets at the University Branch Library at 1:30 pm, on the third Wednesday of every month. The theme for the meeting on Wednesday, September 18, is “Hispanic Heritage.”

The Food for Thought Cookbook Club meets at the Mission Bend Branch Library at 1:00 pm, on the third Thursday of every month. The theme for the meeting on Thursday, September 19, is “Tasty!” Explore some of the recipes from Buzzfeed’s Tasty cookbooks, website, or app.

The meetings provide an opportunity for people to exchange recipes and bring their culinary creations to share in a potluck-style setting for others to sample, if they wish. Those attending are welcome to bring their own cookbooks and recipes, or they may browse the library’s collection of cookbooks.

Share tips, get ideas, and enjoy the camaraderie of other individuals who have an interest in cooking and good cuisine!

The meetings are free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (, or call the Mission Bend Branch Library (832-471-5900), the University Branch Library (281-633-5100), or the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734).

The Mission Bend Branch Library is located at 8421 Addicks Clodine Road in northeast Fort Bend County, and the University Branch Library is located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
