JAMIE OLIVER -- these nominations suggested cooking from Oliver himself rather than pinpointing one specific book. We have done this before, cooking from several Mario Batali books for October 2008 COTM.
You can scroll down on those amazon links to check out editorial reviews of each book. ***Even better -- hounds familiar with these books have already offered wonderfully rich and detailed descriptions on our nominations thread. You can peruse our nominations thread and treat yourself to this fantastic commentary, here:
Hooray for spring and hooray for exploring new recipes! Thanks for your enthusiasm, hounds! It's a pleasure, truly, to be part of our wonderful COTM.
