Hi there! Welcome to the links thread for the **July 2009 Cookbook of the Month** -- Spice: Flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean by Ana Sortun. You may wish to bookmark this thread for future reference, as it contains links to all the other threads for this book.

We will use this thread for general commentary, recipe planning, links, and any other goodies related to this COTM.

To best honor the spirit of the book, I have followed Ana Sortun's method of organization for our links here at COTM, grouping dishes together by featured herbs or spices. This way, we are following her chapter system, hopefully meaning less confusion when we post individual reports. Plus, I believe this will allow us to explore and discuss individual herbs and spices on the individual links featuring them. SO -- here are the links for the threads for the full length recipe reviews:

Chapter One: Cumin, Coriander, and Cardamom

Chapter Two: Saffron, Ginger, and Vanilla

Chapter Three: Sumac, Citrus, and Fennel Seed

Chapter Four: Allspice, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg

Chapter Five: Favorite Chilies (Aleppo, Urfa, and Paprika)

Chapter Six: Three Seeds -- Poppy, Nigella, and Sesame

Chapter Seven: Curry Powder, Turmeric, and Fenugreek

Chapter Eight: Mint, Oregano, and Za’atar

Chapter Nine: Parsley, Mint, Dill, and Sweet Basil

Chapter Ten: Oregano, Summer Savory, Sage, Rosemary, & Thyme

Chapter Eleven: Flower Power (Nasturtium, Orange Blossom, Rose, Chamomile, Lavender, and Jasmine)

Chapter Twelve: Nuts, Yogurt, and Cheese

Happy spicing! Yum yum! Enjoy! ♥
