April 2019 COTM: Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat (SFAH)

Westminstress | Apr 1, 201907:58 AM     11

Welcome to the April 2019 edition of Cookbook of the Month! We will be cooking from Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat.

This is our master thread for the books. Please use it to share thoughts and inspiration, ask questions, chat about ingredients, consider our favorites from the books, and form conclusions as we wrap up the month.

This is also a great place to chat about insights from the first half of the book which do not have specific recipes.

Please use the threads below to report on recipes:

STARTERS AND SIDES, pages 215-279: Includes the chapters Salads; Dressings; Vegetables; Stocks and Soups.

MAIN DISHES, pages 280-357: Includes the chapters Beans, Grains and Pasta; Eggs; Fish; Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Chicken; Meat.

SAUCES AND DESSERTS, pages 358-427: Includes the chapters Sauces, Butter-and-Flour Doughs; Sweets.

Finally, I would like to extend a special welcome to anyone new to Cookbook of the Month (COTM) or returning after a break. This is an inclusive community for home cooks of all levels, even if you're brand new to cooking! We learn a lot as we cook together, and we are thrilled when newcomers join us for the camaraderie and shared learning of COTM. If you're new, all you have to do is cook a recipe from the book and post your report on the corresponding thread, with a photo if you wish. Happy cooking to all!
