APRIL 2008 Cookbook of the Month - Suggestions Gladly Accepted

oakjoan | Mar 17, 2008 12:16 PM

It's now past halfway through March and I thought we should start contemplating the next month's book.

Last month there were several books that were mentioned more than once. Some, like Batali, the Flexitarian Cookbook, Supernatural Cooking and Jamie Oliver's books got a number of votes and I am, therefore, putting up for consideration again. Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way by Lorna Sass also got some votes. A couple of votes also for Dean and DeLuca.

I'd also like to re-suggest Breakfast, Lunch and Tea from The Rose Bakery by Rose Carranini as I have made many of her recipes - all very successful.

Let's have some feedback here for April's book! I think that we'll have until the middle of next week (March 27th) until the next culling.

It seems to me that so far, Dunlop has been a great success and there has been a ton of really interesting discussion. The tips and stories about ingredient searches (and substitutions) alone have made it worthwhile!

POSSIBLY OVERDOING IT SUGGESTION: What about a Cookbook of the Month thread for dessert/baking? It could be posted along with the main COTM , but have its own separate thread. It wouldn't even have to appear every month. I would be glad to take this on as well, as the job isn't THAT onerous. Don't tell anybody that it's really a great pleasure.

Let me know what you think of this idea. It came to me because a book concentrating solely on dessert seems out of place outside of holiday season, but it's also great to see what people think about various desserts at other times of the year. I have been loving Pure Dessert's experimentation with unusual flours and sugars.

AS BEFORE....ALL VOTES FOR ANY BOOK MUST BE IN CAPS TO BE COUNTED. Just too difficult for poor old, broken-down COTM Mistress to sift through if they're not easy to see.

Best, Oakjoan
