islandmermaid | Sep 24, 201805:18 PM     19

Wow! After another tight vote between 2 very popular books, we have our winner! Inching ahead in the last few minutes of the race, MY KITCHEN YEAR: 136 RECIPES THAT CHANGED MY LIFE by Ruth Reichl has taken the spot as our October Cookbook of the Month. Check out the book here: https://www.amazon.com/My-Kitchen-Yea...

We can use this thread to share our excitement, questions, and thoughts about My Kitchen Year before our reporting threads go up on October 1. Also, feel free to post links here to any online recipes from My Kitchen Year. This will offer recipe options to those who may not be able to access the book but would like to cook with us in October.

Take a spin through our previous Cookbook of the Month winners here: https://www.chowhound.com/cookbook_of.... We always enthusiastically welcome reports on any prior COTM, so please post any recipes you cook from past selections.

**Newcomers** -- if you've never experienced the creativity and camaraderie of Cookbook of the Month, we would love to have you! No experience necessary. Just plan to make a dish from the book and post your report in October, with bonus points for photos of the dish. We're a warm and welcoming bunch and we love it when our group grows to include new participants! :)

A big thank you to all who participated in our selection process by nominating and voting. It's always a pleasure to learn about new books in the flurry of nominations, and then to delve into the winner together. My mom gave me My Kitchen Year as a gift a couple of years ago, and I'm just thrilled about exploring this book together in October! :)
