        Dean & DeLuca Cookbook

        Love his Matzah Ball recipe. This is what his Taste cookbook should have been more like.

                    Dean and DeLuca, please. I haven't cooked a lot from it (I have Taste, too), but those recipes I've used have been excellent. The Boeuf a la Bourguignonne is a favorite.

                                  Thanks for all the good work, Joan (what a great name!)

                                  Enough kudos. Now a question. In this thread somebody asked about how the books were chosen.

                                  I would like to get in on suggesting cookbooks for COM, but have not seen such a thread for months. Do we have a place to comment and discuss or are these books just culled from regular posts wherein folks mention them?

                                  I actually like the earlier procedure of a thread just for suggestions and discussions. They got rowdy sometimes and rambled on and on, but it seemed that usually a few books got many more votes than others and a run-off ensued.

                                  Was that just too much work? Seriously, was it a pain to look through all those messages and opinion pieces to find actual reccommendations of specific books? I'm being totally serious here and don't mean to be at all snippy. WHAT!? Oakjoan tries NOT to be snippy? Alert the media!

                                  Thanks for any info and clarification from you (JoanN) or anybody else wanting to chime in.

                                    Explanation and suggestion thread for the next 6 months here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/426960 I would encourage you (and anyone else) to volunteer for the next 6-month stint, if you're not happy with the choices (also not being snippy :-). We need people that care as much as you do to carry on with this wonderful idea that redwood2bay had.

                                    Keep up the great work JoanN- now, if I could just get my butt in the kitchen for anything other than my special chocolate milks!! ;-)

                                        Milk, chocolate syrup, and a sprinkle of Penzey's Vietnamese cinnamon- the extent of my "cooking" these days! :-)

                                        This thread http://www.chowhound.com/topics/426960 answers, I think, most of your questions. In short, it wasn't just that it was a lot of work to go through suggestions every month, but the suggestions tended to repeat and there was no one place everyone could go to see just what the suggestions were. I had hoped that this new procedure would make it easier not only for the organizer, but for the contributors as well.

                                        I had hoped, as I said then, that that thread would remain active and participants would feel free to contribute to it throughout my tenure. But old threads get pushed down the list and that seems not to have happened.

                                        I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about procedures for Cookbook of the Month, whether or not it's working, and whether or how they should be changed. But I think The Chowhound Team would prefer that if we do get into that kind of conversation, it take place on The Site board. So if the thread I've pointed to doesn't answer what you need answered, please post a query on The Site board and we'll talk it out over there.

                                          Okie dokie.

                                          I certainly didn't mean to say that I'm "not happy" with the cookbooks chosen. Sometimes I am, some times I'm not. I would certainly consider volunteering for the position, but I don't think that my commenting on the procedure leads to that. Does one have to volunteer to take over COM for complaints to be taken as serious and worthy complaints and not as snipes?

                                          I won't write anymore here re this, will go to the thread. Thanks for the info, guys.

                                          PS: Isn't it possible for the Team to put the COM commenting/voting thread at the top of the Home Cooking Board so that it doesn't get buried? Is this possible oh Jefes of all of us?

                                                  It's nice to see you playing, jfood. Don't recall seeing you on COM thread. I haven't cooked from Silver Palate in years, although I cooked from it often in the past. What recipes do you still like?

                                                    jfood's three SP books need re-glueing and are held shut by a big rubber band. They are about to suffer the fate of jfoods first cookbook Joy of Cooking circa 1972. :-((

                                                    standard freezer item is their salmon croquettes, if they ever make it to the freezer. ever see two adults and two teenage girls standing over paper towels with salmon croquettes draining on them so they can eat them when the get 1-degree below too hot. quite a seen (sic).

                                                    when M&M jfood were first married these books were their entertainment guide and were the second level of cooking after JOC.

                                                    jfood has looked at some of the previous few months and it was hard to fit into schedule but now that everyone seems located and the fall months are approaching jfood hopes to play.

                                                      I'll definitely try the croquettes -- we love salmon around here, and like to have freezer-friendly items for last-minute meals.
