Welcome to the July 2012 Cookbook of the Month! This month we will be cooking from Fish Without a Doubt by Rick Moonen and Roy Finamore. This is a revisit of the March 2009 COTM, and we will be returning to those threads to add our latest experiences.
If you haven't ever participated in the Cookbook of the Month discussion, we hope you'll give us a try in June. We have a lot of fun, and we learn from each other's experiences. The basics of COTM, and the archive of past books, can be found here:
If you are curious about the selection process for this month's COTM, and the accompanying discussion, the voting thread is here:
and the nomination thread is here:
Also, there is always interesting discussion on the announcement thread, which you can find here:
Below are the original threads we will be using to report (and below that, some tips on using these threads to report):
Poaching, Steaming, & Boiling:
Broiling, Grilling, & Smoking:
Baking & Roasting, Searing & Sautéing, Frying
Shellfish Appetizers & First Courses and Chowders, Soups, Stews:

When you report on a recipe, please look to see if anyone else has reported on the same recipe. If someone has written about it, please hit the reply box within the initial report. This way, all of the reports on a dish will be grouped together. If no one has yet reported on a recipe, then hit the reply box in the original post at the top of the page, or the "Reply to original post" at the bottom of the page. You will then be starting a new a new recipe to which others can reply.
If the thread is very long, and it seems like a chore to see if someone has reported on a recipe, you can do a keyword search. On a mac you hit command F, on a PC you hit control F. Start typing what it is you are searching for, either by ingredient, title, or page number, and the entries will be highlighted.
Happy fish of July everyone!
