After a really active nomination period, we had relatively quiet voting and a clear winner. The September, 2017 Cookbook of the Month will be SMALL VICTORIES, by Julia Tershen.
SMALL VICTORIES: RECIPES, ADVICE + HUNDREDS OF IDEAS FOR HOME COOKING TRIUMPHS, by Julia Tershen
"The process of truly great home cooking is demystified via more than a hundred lessons called out as "small victories" in the funny, encouraging headnotes; these are lessons learned by Julia through a lifetime of cooking thousands of meals. This beautifully curated, deeply personal collection of what Chef April Bloomfield calls "simple, achievable recipes" emphasizes bold-flavored, honest food for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. More than 160 mouth-watering photographs from acclaimed photographers Gentl + Hyers provide beautiful instruction and inspiration, and a gingham spine elevates this entertaining and essential kitchen resource into a covetable gift for both beginners and accomplished home cooks."
