October 2018 Cookbook of the Month: MY KITCHEN YEAR by Ruth Reichl

islandmermaid | Oct 1, 201803:05 PM     48

Happy fall to everyone in our Cookbook of the Month community! Let's celebrate the harvest together as we cook from our October Cookbook of the Month, MY KITCHEN YEAR: 136 RECIPES THAT SAVED MY LIFE by Ruth Reichl.

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 our thoughts and inspiration, ask questions, chat about ingredients, consider our favorites from the book, and form conclusions as we wrap up the month. Please share any links to online recipes from the book, too, so that more of us can cook together.

Please use the threads below to report on recipes:
*FALL (p. 1-77):

Finally, I would like to extend a special welcome to anyone new to Cookbook of the Month (COTM) or returning after a break. 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 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!
