what happened to the group cookbook thing?

gnosh Mar 10, 2007 03:26 AM

For the last year, I've been meaning to get involved in that group activity on this board in which people pick a cookbook and share experiences about recipes for a month. Now that I've decided to actually do it, I can't find it. Is it no longer happening or moved to another board?

    Being new to this forum, I've not heard of the 'project' - but, it sure sounds like fun! Hope it gets off the ground.

        Here's a list of the books that have been used so far :
        The 1st was Sept. 2006, "..Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking" Marcella Hazan
        Oct. 2006 "All About Brining" Molly Stevens
        Nov. 2006 "Mexico One Plate at a Time" Rick Bayless
        Dec. 2006 "Baking from my Home to Yours" Dorie Greenspan
        Jan. 2007 "The Zuni Cafe Cookbook" Judy Rodgers
        Feb. 2007 "Hot Sour Salty Sweet" Alford and Duguid
        March 2007 was not a book, but online--"Leite's Culinaria"

        Just search for Cookbook of the Month here in home cooking and you'll find lots of comments about each book, as well as how the system works. Very worthwhile!

          This month's "cookbook" is Leites' Culinaria website. The main thread is here:

          There are also separate threads for entrees, desserts, breads, appetizers, etc. Enjoy!
