Join a conversation where the knives are as sharp as the wits at the Brooklyn Kitchen Book Club hosted by Brooklyn-based journalist Cara Cannella.

On June 20, they’ll tackle Tamar Adler’s “An Everlasting Meal,” a modern adaptation of MFK Fisher’s “How to Cook a Wolf,” that’s chock full of useful advice about cooking whole chickens and stretching meals for several days.

“Her voice is formal but her cooking approach is accessible,” said Cannella. “It’s narrative-style but it’s not a cookbook. It reads like a narrative in a really lovely way.”

The cookware store and butchery shop is restarting its book club to give customers an opportunity to discuss food writing while noshing on snacks and sloshing down beer and wine.

“I’m interested in the intersection between food and the printed page, both in cookbooks and in prose works about food,” said Brooklyn Kitchen co-owner Harry Rosenblum.

Be sure to stick around for the next book club to discuss MFK Fisher’s book. Wolf will not be served.

The Brooklyn Kitchen Book Club presents “An Everlasting Meal” [100 Frost St. between Leonard Street and Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg (718) 389–2982. www.thebrooklynkitchen.com]. June 20, 6:30 pm. $10.

Reach reporter Aaron Short at ashort@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260-2547.
