It's time again to gather thoughts and titles, we need a workable book for what is often a busy month. Sweets for celebrations, or solid simple meals to set down, sixish?
I can't imagine which way it will go for December. Re-visit an old book? Something almost freshly published?
Everything called "bistro" or "diner" always appeals to me ("pub food" or "taverna" too!)
The holiday cookie/cake books (those pictures!) are enticing.
I fear not everyone will like this suggestion, but a month without a book, an online month, is an idea. Pick an online blog or chef or TV show and cook from that for December. Alton Brown, Smitten Kitchen, etc. are very famous, but there are SO many worthy compilations of recipes out there that are not in print. Maybe you know one and could persuade the rest of us?
Here is a link to the process and past books http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
