January 2007 Cookbook of the Month: Cast Your Votes Here

It's that time again, believe it or not. We had a runoff for December's title, so it seems like we just voted on it. The January selection highlights two cookbooks from acclaimed West Coast restaurants.

For January, please select one of the following cookbooks:

SUNDAY SUPPERS AT LUCQUES by Suzanne Goin and Teri Gelber
or
THE ZUNI CAFE COOKBOOK by Judy Rodgers and Gerald Asher

Voting will be open until midnight on Thursday, December 14th, 2007 (Pacific Standard Time). I'll announce the winner at the end of this thread on Friday the 15th.

Thanks for participating!

  1. I'll vote for Zuni because I really need to get back into this book.

      1. Zuni for me, please. I haven't cooked from it in months and was looking at it longingly the other day...

          I didn't think there was anything in the book left for you to try. ;-) Eagerly awaiting your roundup on the picks and pans page.

            Are you kidding??! I still haven't made that savory panade!! Or the gougeres...or the burger...or the espresso granita.........

            January is going to be a delicious month; no post-holiday dieting for me!

              Hee! I had forgotten that I had made the panade and the gougeres. The panade is FANTASTIC. And the gougeres are a great basic gougere recipe. Maybe I'll make them for Christmas eve.

              1. re: Amuse Bouches

                I was just looking at the gougeres last night and wondering if it (the little sandwiches) would be an appropriate appetizer for a sit down dinner. Or are they more of a pre-dinner hors d'oeuvre? If I do do them as an appetizer, how many per person? Hard to tell from either the recipe or the text.

                1. re: JoanN

                  I would say they're more of an hors d'oeuvre, but a substantial one. It depends on how big you make the gougeres, but they're definitely more finger food than fork food.
