The Bluebird Books Test Kitchen Saturday evening featured sample food from some cookbooks released for the holiday season. About a dozen different items were offered from owner Melanie Green and other booksellers who previewed cookbooks.
In addition, Green talked about remodeling happening next door for another business and said she will be getting some additional space from that in the back of Bluebird Books. The resulting L-shaped space will allow her to have a full coffee bar with a barista at some point in 2015 when it’s complete.
The menu on Saturday included a cocktail, four appetizers, soup and salad, main dish, and three different desserts. Attendees were offered a 20% discount that evening on the cookbooks featured.
