January 2022 COTM - Announcement

MelMM | Dec 25, 202111:56 AM     27

Our January COTM will be MOZZA AT HOME by Nancy Silverton and Carolynn Carreño.

The book description notes that Ms. Silverton, being engaged in the business of professional cooking, had lost touch with the joy of cooking and eating at home. This book documents her rediscovery of home cooking and feeding family and friends.

"Now, in Mozza at Home, Nancy shares her renewed passion and provides nineteen menus packed with easy-to-follow recipes that can be prepared in advance (with no fancy restaurant equipment needed!) and are perfect for entertaining. Organized by meal, each menu provides a main dish along with a complementary selection of appetizers and side dishes. Under Nancy’s guidance you can mix and match all the options depending on the size of your gathering. Make a few sides for a small dinner party with friends, or make them all for a delicious family feast! And don’t forget dessert—there’s an entire chapter dedicated to end-of-meal treats such as Devil’s Food Rings with Spiced White Mountain Frosting and Dario’s Olive Oil Cake with Rosemary and Pine Nuts that can be prepared hours before serving so that the host gets to relax during the event too."

With omicron raging, many of us are keeping entertaining off the proverbial table for the near future, but I've I've always enjoyed entertaining-style dishes at home, scaled down my small household of two. I hope all of you are able to find something in this book that speaks to you and is doable.

Use this thread for general discussion of the book as we prepare to cook from it in January. On January first, I will post our reporting threads.
