March 2007 Cookbook of the Month: Cast Your Votes Here
With our voting for a new cookbook of the month comes a new organizer...
introducing Katie Nell, who will be taking over the cookbook of the month project. I'm sure you've seen her posts-- she has a love of cooking and great enthusiasm. Take it away, Katie! And thanks!
Well, now that redwood2bay has done the hard part and organized this glorious Cookbook of the Month Club, I will be doing the easy part and taking over the organization for the next six months! I'm certainly glad to be here and happy to continue cooking along with the rest of the Chowhounds!
For this month, we discussed the fact that there are a lot of different climates/ seasons among all of us Chowhounds- we are definitely spread out all over the place. So, we wanted to go with something that everyone could find inspiration in. In the past months, there has been interest in cooking from a website, so here it is Hounds- a cook"book" that will be accessible to all! These websites were chosen based on their smaller compilations of thoughtful recipes.
Please vote for one of the following:
-- The Gilded Fork http://www.gildedfork.com/
-- Leite's Culinaria http://www.leitesculinaria.com/index....
-- The Splendid Table http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/
Please add your votes to this thread. Voting will be open until February 14th, Valentine's Day. I'll announce the March cook"book" of the month on Thursday, February 15th, giving you plenty of time to start planning your menus for March.
Thanks to everyone for participating and a special thanks to redwood2bay for the fantastic idea and wonderful organizing!

Wow Katie! You started off with a bang. They are all such great choices, this is going to be hard. I do like how the Gilded Fork also has adult beverages (hic). Thanks for taking the reins, and to Redwood2Bay for coming up with this idea.
Im so excited!!! Im at work now so i could only glance through the website but for sure i know from past experice my vote will be either Leite's Culinaria or The Splendid Table- I will have to explor in greater detail... :) Thanks!!!
It's hard to believe it's been six months, although my bathroom scale confirms it. Great, great job, redwood2bay. We are in your debt. And to Katie, break a leg . . . or should that be break a spatula?
I'm going to vote for Leites Culinaria. There's such a tremendous range of great sounding recipes there, it will be easy to find things to cook no matter the weather or the amount of effort one chooses to expend.
I vote for Leite's Culinaria. The recipes look great, the photos even better, and the collection seems more thought-out.
