So Oakjoan has handed her sceptre over to me for the next six months, starting with August. I’ll try to post the September suggestions thread at the beginning of August, so that posters have more time to find/order books, etc. I note that a number of posters were interested in THE GLORIOUS FOODS OF GREECE (yes, that is an example of how to post your suggestions) in July but, as always, the field is wide open. And, as with other COTM organizers in the past, I’ll be refraining from chiming in on the suggestions/voting threads, but not the cooking.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to make it easier for participants to scan others’ suggestions and for me to tabulate the results, I’d appreciate it if you would make your recommendations in the following format:
TITLE (in all caps), Author: Description of the book or reason you are recommending it (optional)
If you want to second or third a title that someone else has already mentioned, please repeat the title, typing it in capital letters. Just saying “I agree with Stewpot” may well get lost and your choice might not get counted. And the more often a particular title is mentioned, the greater the chance it will be among the finalists.
I’ll post the two or three most recommended books, depending on how the suggestions tally up, on July 15th and we’ll begin the voting for August Cookbook of the Month. My thought is to keep the voting period itself limited, so that posters will have more time to get the books. I’m looking forward to seeing your suggestions. And, as always, thanks for participating.
