Well, October is only days away now, so I thought we should have a conversation about how the cookbook of the month experiment is going. Have you enjoyed it? Is it manageable with the limited thread format we have been using? Should we continue? Are you OK with my continuing to organize this?
** Also, I wanted to know if folks wanted to continue with Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking for a few more weeks or if we were ready to select a new cookbook for October.
Whenever we select a new cookbook, these are my current plans for starting threads as long as we are on the Home Cooking board:
-- around five threads for extensive reviews of new recipes we are trying
-- one thread for discussion of recipe selection, so that groups of people can get together and you can get feedback before you try a recipe
-- (new) one thread for "past picks and pans" where people can post shorter reviews of recipes they may have done in the past
-- one overall thread for general discussion
I've asked the chowhound team for their opinions but haven't heard back yet. Now I'm asking for yours. Feel free to post specific or general comments on the cookbook of the month.
And thanks for your participation!
