Demo & Dinner

March 23, 2024, 5:00-8:30pm

For our March Demo & Dinner event, we’ll bring the pages of Kwame Onwuachi’s “My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef” to life. Join us for a ‘pop-up’ experience right in our kitchen, immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of American food that transcends borders and cultures.

Demo & Dinner events aren’t just a meal; they’re a journey through the pages of a cookbook and an experience to share with others.


Cooking Should Be Fun, Accessible, and Diverse

Our mission is to build ties among food and our food makers and become the mid-point between our local farms and the dinner table. We strive to make a positive contribution to our community by building self-confidence and broadening the learning experience through food.

About The Book Kitchen

Nicole’s culinary journey led her from Chicago to the charming town of Mineral Point, where serendipity played a hand in her next adventure. She crossed paths with Keith Burrows and Leslie Damaso, the spirited owners of The Republic of Letters Bookstore.

It was in this delightful meeting of minds and shared passions that The Book Kitchen was born. This collaboration brought together the love for both literature and delectable cuisine, creating a unique and enchanting culinary destination for the community and beyond.

Together, they embarked on a culinary and literary journey, crafting a space where the written word and the art of cooking come together in perfect harmony, offering patrons a truly remarkable experience for the senses.
