October 2007 Cookbook of the Month: Cast Your Votes Here

I had originally thought that November would be a good Julia Child month. But Thanksgiving comes fairly early this year, many of us will be looking for holiday-appropriate recipes, and Julia and Thanksgiving just don’t seem a serendipitous fit. Julia, then, will be our October choice.

There was a clear consensus that many of you wanted a Julia Child month. What was less clear, not only with Julia but in general, is whether you would prefer to cook from a single book or to have the option of choosing any recipe by a single author.

With that in mind, please vote for one of the following three choices for October Cookbook of the Month

--Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volumes One and Two

--The Way to Cook

--Any Julia Child recipe, from a book or from online

by posting your vote to this thread. Voting will be open until Monday, September 16th and I'll post the October Cookbook of the Month on Tuesday, August 17th.

  1. I love the idea of cooking from any of Julia's cookbooks, there are many to choose from and more people would be able to participate.
    Thank you!

          I vote for Any Julia Child recipe! Great idea.

          I am, however, still pitching a Paula Wolfort cookbook for the near future. She has such a variety that any would be good. Since we've already had Middle Eastern, well Turkey, Lebanon and Morocco anyhow, I'd suggest one of her books on other subjects, such as World of Food, or Southwest France (a true gem!). In fact, however, her Mediterranean cookbook has recipes from Spain, France, Greece, etc. in addition to Syria and other M.E. countries.

            We've split a discussion of favorite Wolfert recipes into its own thread. You can find it here:


        2. I vote for The Way to Cook.
          that way we'll be more likely to overlap in recipes.

          1. I'd love to have the option of any recipe by a single author.
