Here's a great idea for those who have too many cookbooks gathering dust on kitchen shelves - swap them.
FoodTalk is holding a cookbook sale and swap from 10 to 3 p.m. June 25 at Cafe Bernardo at 28th and Capitol in Sacramento.
Participants can meet several Northern California cookbook writers, peruse hundreds of new, used and rare cookbooks and swap up to five of their own cookbooks, according to an event e-mail.
FoodTalk, a forum for foodies interested in all things food writing, is sponsored by MatrixArts, a nonprofit that works in the realm of visual, literary, performing and culinary arts and provides art and design education programs, the organization's website states.
The FoodTalk events are $15 per session, $50 for the series of four events in June. FoodTalk's June sessions include a blind tasting (June 4), conversation with local cookbook author Hank Shaw (June 11) and a session on creating a kitchen diary (June 18).
The price includes food and beverages.
Proceeds from FoodTalk events benefit a MatrixArts children's program and FoodTalk@the Library.
