Welcome to this month's suggestions thread for our April Cookbook of the Month, giving everyone a chance to make suggestions here until the END OF THE DAY MARCH 13 (Pacific time, midnight). That's a week for suggestions, and then we'll hold a quick runoff if necessary. Again, THIS THREAD WILL BE UP UNTIL MIDNIGHT MARCH 13. At that point, hopefully a clear winner will have emerged for us. That way, participants can order the book and access it via library or bookshop in time for April 1.
HOW TO POST:
When you recommend a book, please try to mention if you've cooked from it or not, why you think it would work for COTM, and feel free to add in your own critique of the book ---- but please, please use all CAPS for your actual suggestion. I'm excited to see the ideas!
PLEASE NOTE: 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 but preferred)
**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 So and So” 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.
A little note -- Last month we had a verrry close race, and THE OTTOLENGHI COOKBOOK by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi was just a couple of votes shy of winning. So I'll toss Ottolenghi out there as a contender again. To find out more about this book, look at the thread that Candy has started on Ottolenghi:
If you'd like to take a peek, here are lots of other ideas from last month's suggestions thread:
It's a pleasure to moderate COTM and I'm excited to see what turns up this time! I will be online each evening, so I will respond each night to any questions or concerns.
Thanks so much for participating!
