d’Oeuvres Handbook

--DAVID LEBOVITZ: Room for Dessert *AND* davidlebovitz.com

--GINA DE PALMA: Dolce Italiano: Desserts from the Babbo Kitchen

by posting your vote to this thread. Voting will be open until Monday, November 19th and I'll post the December Cookbook of the Month on Tuesday, November 20th.

All Chowhounds are invited to contribute to Cookbook of the Month. The more cooks, the more fun we all have. But PLEASE . . . only vote if you really do intend to participate and report back.

  1. I am not going to vote because I'm just not sure how much time I'll have for baking this year. I just wanted to pop in to suggest this thread be made a sticky, and that the earlier December thread be unstuck.

                          Her cookbook got a starred review from Publisher's Weekly, including traditional Italian, Italian-American and neuvo American-Italian and lots of narrative. I reserved at my library, and am excited about it. As excited as exploring Molly Stevens, which was a great COTM.
                          Martha does not excite me one bit. I am so tired of her.
                          Room for Dessert is not available from my library.

                              1. DAVID LEBOVITZ, although it looks as if I'm lost in a sea of Martha the Queen of Self Promotion.

                                PS: Has anybody seen the new cookbook by the owner of Citizen Cake in SF? Deconstructing Desserts or something like that.

                                  Yep, it was featured in the B&N Christmas Catalog. I checked it out when I was in-store and it had some really tempting recipes, though I did not pick it up as I know I don't even use the cookbooks I already have enough to justify owning them =). You can get it pretty cheap if you are a B&N member.

                                  1. re: oakjoan

                                    what's the name of the book or chef? I'd like to see if I can get from my library.
                                    thanks.

                                    1. re: NYchowcook

                                      It's called Elizabeth Falkner's Demolition Desserts.

                                      Sorry, but I shouldn't have brought it up on this thread. Forgot where I was.

                                      The cookbooks for which we are voting are listed as the first message in this thread.

                                    1. Martha Stewart for her Appetizer book. The pictures are beautiful and the variety of recipes is just staggering

                                        let's do gina depalma next year...more time to get the book!
                                        they are "cooking the book" Doce Italiano over on Serious Eats, btw

                                        personally, I think there's enough other outlets in the world for martha stewart
                                        (sigh)

                                        1. Well, it may be a few hours short, but . . . by a landslide,

                                          THE WINNER IS
