Our first book for the new year, by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi, is
"Jerusalem: A Cookbook." I have seen only "look inside this book" glimpses of "Jerusalem," but the reputation of the authors and their past books are rock solid assurances that everyone will be pleased with this choice --
and I really want to be right about that!
Here is the voting thread for this book:
Please join in the cooking this January, everyone is welcome to participate a little or a lot. I *think* the photo on the cover of this book is of a dish called "shakshuka" and it might be good dish to start with!
I'll put up threads for reviewing and reporting on tested and tasted recipes on January 1, 2013.
Thanks to everyone who nominated and voted -- it was a strong win for "Jerusalem" and I can't wait to see my copy.
