Hello, CotMers! The clear consensus is that people want a cookbook for December that’s full of holiday treats for serving, giving, and sending. Certainly general baking books would be appropriate, but let’s also consider books that specialize only in cookies or those that emphasize other types of gifts from the kitchen such as preserves, chutneys, oils, and vinegars. I’d like your help in narrowing down the field to just two or three such titles for us to vote on. What are your go-to books for the holiday season? What book would you like to see as December Cookbook of the Month?
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 on November 12 and we’ll begin the voting for December Cookbook of the Month on November 13. I’m looking forward to seeing your suggestions. And, as always, thanks for participating.
