OK, so maybe your goal of becoming the best baker this side of the Mississippi is waning. You struggle with over-baking, you're terrible about under-baking, and that last round of cupcakes turned out more like cupquakes, so earth-shatteringly heavy were they. We aren't ones to quash dreams, but maybe you should stop torturing yourself, rid your cupboard of those dessert digests and cake compendiums, and affordably replace them with cookbooks you'll actually enjoy using. The Young Literati Cookbook Swap
can help you with this task. Held at the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street), this event provides an opportunity to trade out your unused, unwanted books for those of another swapper. To further sweeten the evening, there will be delicious Schlafly beer and appetizers served up -- fun! The swap happens from 6 to 8 p.m., and bringing along a cookbook to trade is not required, just suggested. To learn more about this event and the Young Literati, a group of young professionals who support the St. Louis Public Library, call 314-539-0359 or visit the group on Facebook.
