The Dairy Queen | Aug 1, 201112:25 AM     102

WELCOME to August 2011 COTM! Fany Gerson's PALETAS was selected as a COMPANION BOOK to the primary book, Jaffrey's World Vegetarian. bayoucook will be putting up the Jaffrey threads, and I am putting up this thread at her request. Thank you, bayoucook, for your six months of service to COTM!

Since PALETAS is a relatively small book, approximately 50 recipes, PLEASE USE THIS THREAD FOR ALL DISCUSSION OF PALETAS, including of recipes. Please mention the name of your recipe in your post and, if possible, the page number. (Or provide a link to the recipe on the web, if available). You may see a listing of all of the book's recipes here: http://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/8...

HAVING DIFFICULTY ACQUIRING THE BOOK? Numerous pages are available through Google Books. Also, Abebooks.com has copies for sale right now: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/Searc... Lastly, many of these recipes are out on the web. Consider browsing the recipe index for this book on EatYourBooks.com http://www.eatyourbooks.com/library/8... , finding a recipe that intrigues you (based on its title and ingredients), then searching for the recipe on the web. If you have no luck with a web search, post in this thread and ask your fellow hounds to paraphrase the recipe for you (in accordance with Chowhound's recipe guidelines of course: [BROKEN LINK REMOVED]) and someone usually will. The Chowhound Team has asked me to remind you that verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author. Posts with copied recipes will be removed.

NEW TO COOKBOOK OF THE MONTH? Haven't joined us before and wondering what we're up to? Anyone and everyone are welcome to join us in our collective cooking endeavor, no dues are charged. You don't even have to follow the recipe precisely (we see occasional departures, both intentional and otherwise, often due to dietary requirements, personal preference, or ingredient availability), though please disclose any departures from any recipe This link explains how COTM works: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
