  1. Was there a list of online recipes compiled somewhere? Not sure if that was this month or a previous COTM.

    1. re: yamalam

      Between pitu, clepro and me (with some links to where oakjoan has paraphrased some recipes), there are links to about 15-20 recipes listed here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6039...

      and the post beneath it http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6039...

      and here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6039...

      If there are any recipes mentioned in the book's table of contents here that someone would like to have paraphrased, please speak up and I'll try to paraphrase them for you http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/to...


    2. Going through this book, it strikes me that there are an awful lot of great looking options for vegans and gluten-free eaters...

      1. Foxy, the Soups and Salads link seems to have been removed. Clicked on it twice trying to add to my favorites and I'm getting "This Topic Has Been Removed."

          Yamalam, try once more. It seems to have been restored.

        2. Just received my copy in the post and there are loads of things I want to try. I think my first recipe will have to be some kind of cake.

            WOOHOO! Don't you think it looks a little like Ottolenghi in style (not the style of the photos, necessary, Ottolenghi's are much more warm and inviting), but I guess in layout? GG--is that a typical British style of cookbook?


          2. I don't have the book and I am cooking from on-line recipes many of you all helped to put together.
            Today I am making the orange and almond cake, from the following link: http://www.culinaryconcoctionsbypeabo...
            I simmered the lemon and orange and now I have a question. How do you interpret the recipe, should I add the whole citrus fruits without the seeds, or should I peel it?
            Thanks for the help!

            1. re: cpw

              This is a version of Claudia Roden's classic recipe (popularized by Nigella Lawson). You don't peel the fruit, you process the whole shebang, skin and all.

                1. re: cpw

                  Definitely report on your results in the tarts and cakes thread linked above, will you?

                  1. re: Caitlin McGrath

                    Yes I will. The cake in the oven right now, and it smell great!

                  2. re: cpw

                    HEY! cpw....you DON'T use the seeds.

                    I've made this cake several times and it's really good. It has quite a different texture than most cakes. I think Joan Nathan has a version in her Jewish Cooking book, since it's a good cake for Passover.

              1. I have to apologize that I haven't been able to do much cooking from this book. I have been dealing with a minor emergency/situation that will likely persist for another month or so. I continue to read everyone's wonderful posts and hope to be able to add to this thread as I am able to. I really want to try that broccoli cake and that carrot cake! I'm obsessed with vegetable cakes!

                1. re: The Dairy Queen

                  Sorry to hear about your problem. I'm really enjoying cooking from the book - and my colleagues are liking the results!

                  1. re: greedygirl

                    Thanks GG. Everything is sounding so delicious, especially all of the sweets. I can't wait to try them all when I'm out of my little crisis.


                2. We put together a landing page for Cookbook of the Month (COTM) that explains to new participants how it works, and links to all the previous selections. We'll update it each month as new cookbooks are selected. We hope it will provide a useful archive for people cooking from some of the previous books, as well as a convenient page to link to in the suggestions/selection threads so people can recall what has already been covered.


                  Enjoy, and thanks for participating!

                    That is really awesome. Thank you! I have bookmarked that page for easy access to the COTM master threads, and I suggest others do the same.

                    1. For Rose Carrarini fans, she has a new book coming out in February! "How to boil and egg".
