#ckbkclub is a group for cookbook lovers and enthusiastic home cooks to come together and share our cooking explorations. We'll cook from a rotating selection of cookbooks and themes and share our results on social media to help you make the most of your ckbk subscription. 

How does it work?  

  • Every month we'll select one book or theme from the ckbk website to cook from. We'll announce each month's book on our social media channels. Follow us for updates on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
  • Read the book online and favorite recipes you’d like to make. 
  • Cook whichever recipes from the book sound appealing to you, take photos of your dishes, and post to the group along with any notes, comments, and cooking tips.
  • You can post to our Facebook group. Or post to Instagram or Twitter with hashtag #ckbkclub and tag us @ckbk, we'll re-share your posts on our feed.
  • Invite your friends and anyone who loves to cook.
