March 2018 Cookbook of the Month: VOTING

Caitlin McGrath | Feb 16, 201805:14 PM     35

Welcome to the voting thread for March 2018 COTM. A lively nomination thread included nominations for 19 unique books (and one two-for-one combination), but only the two with most nominations are now in the running. An also-ran from February, the Maangchi-Koreatown duo received sufficient nominations to move ahead on its own, and there were also a handful of votes for the individual books; narrowly edging its nearest competitor, the plant-based Smith & Daughters tied the two-for-one combination. Now it’s up to you: Will we make a go-round with Korean cooking, or go for the first wholly vegan book to make it to a vote?

I’ve cribbed MelMM’s descriptions of our first contenders from last month, so thanks to Mel for making that easy for me, and also for so adroitly shepherding us through the past six months of COTM!

To see how we arrived here, check out the nomination thread: https://www.chowhound.com/post/march-...

And for the long view, take a spin through the COTM Archive page: https://www.chowhound.com/cookbook_of...

On to our choices!

1. MAANGCHI'S REAL KOREAN COOKING: AUTHENTIC DISHES FOR THE HOME COOK, Maangchi; and KOREATOWN: A COOKBOOK, Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard

MAANGCHI: "Her millions of fans compare her to Julia Child. An Internet sensation, Maangchi has won the admiration of home cooks and chefs alike with her trademark combination of good technique and good cheer as she demonstrates the vast and delicious cuisine of Korea. In Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking, she shows how to cook all the country’s best dishes, from few-ingredient dishes (Spicy Napa Cabbage) to those made familiar by Korean restaurants (L.A. Galbi, Bulgogi, Korean Fried Chicken) to homey one-pots like Bibimbap."
