Welcome to the December 2014 Cookbook of the Month! This month we will be cooking from “The Essential New York times Cookbook”, by Amanda Hesser. This is a revisit of the February 2011 COTM, and we will be returning to those original 2011 review threads to add our latest experiences.
For those who are new to COTM, or others who need a refresher, here's a link to the COTM Archive: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
And for the background on how we selected this month’s book, take a look at these links.
