Wishing all a joyous start to this new year and a warm welcome to our January 2019 Cookbook of the Month, UNFORGETTABLE: THE BOLD FLAVORS OF PAULA WOLFERT'S RENEGADE LIFE by Emily Kaiser Thelin.

This is our master thread for the book. While we're cooking together this month, this thread will be a place for us to share thoughts and inspiration, ask questions, chat about ingredients, consider our favorites from the book, and form conclusions as we wrap up the month. I have listed only the chapters including recipes on the reporting threads, so feel free to reflect on any other content from this culinary biography on this master thread, too.

Please use the threads below to report on recipes from the noted chapters:

*THE HELL OUT OF FLATBUSH (p. 9-27), LIFE AS A BEATNIK (p. 29-46), PARTY BOXES (p. 59-75), and MADAME COUSCOUS (p. 77-110):

Finally, I would like to extend a special welcome to anyone new to Cookbook of the Month (COTM) or returning after a break. Start the new year by cooking with us! This is an inclusive community for home cooks of all levels, even if you're brand new to cooking! We learn a lot as we cook together, and we are thrilled when newcomers join us for the camaraderie and shared learning of COTM. If you're new, all you have to do is cook a recipe from the book and post your report on the corresponding thread, with a photo if you wish. Happy cooking to all!
