Holiday Dessert Tasting and Recipe Swap - Thursday, Dec. 15, 7 p.m.
Join the Friends of the Burlington Public Library for the second annual Holiday Dessert Tasting and Recipe Swap. We all have the “must have” traditional dessert for the holidays and many of us are looking for something different to make as well. This is a great opportunity to share your favorite recipes and discover new ones! It is NOT necessary to be a baker to attend: all who attend will have a chance to sample the treats and take home copies of recipes.
Bakers should register on-line via the Library calendar (navigate to Dec. 15 and click on the hand) or by calling 781-505-4985.
