Cooking from Molly O'Neill's "One Big Table"

The Dairy Queen | Jan 21, 201104:12 AM

There were several nominations for OBT in the February COTM nominations thread, but a couple of posters also expressed that they found O'Neill's previous "New York Cookbook" uninspiring. I imagine this book will come up in future nominations threads, so thought it might be a good idea to get some reports out there so we can see whether this book is worthy of a future COTM.


~O'Neill's website:
Table of contents and a few recipes appear in The Book/A Look Inside.

~Thread with initial impressions about the book:

~WaPo review

~Recipes Indexed on EYB

~O'Neill interview PBS newshour


dkennedy's reports on

~Hal and Mal's vegetable soup recipe on p. 113 " ok [...] but it was nothing I would earmark to make again."

~Rod Okuno' green chili on p. 463 "shows more promise but it is not spectacular as written"


~Ellen Sullivan's Lavender Tenderloin

~Virginia’s French Almond Cookies (Columbus, Ohio).
~LaVerne’s Black Raspberry Bars (Arlington, Virginia

~Homa Movafaghi's Persian Noodle Soup
~Judge George Chew's Justifiably Famous Ribs
~Peter's Saigon-Biloxi Shrimp

I tried a recipe last night, which I will post about shortly.
