December 2010 Cookbook of the Month: REVISIT GOURMET TODAY
We will be revisiting Gourmet Today for the Month of December. I have directly copied Caitlin McGrath's original announcement since it was so well done!
Welcome to the May and June 2010 COTM! Our cookbook for these two months is GOURMET TODAY: MORE THAN 1000 ALL-NEW RECIPES FOR THE CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN.
New to Cookbook of the Month? This page explains how it all works: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
We will use this thread for general discussion about the book, menu planning, and online links to the book's recipes.
The Chowhound Team has asked me to remind you that verbatim copying of recipes to the boards is a violation of the copyright of the original author. Posts with copied recipes will be removed.
Please post full reviews in the appropriate threads linked below.

NOTE: I have elected not to create a thread for the chapter Grilled Dishes. Instead, please post reports on those recipes in the most appropriate thread, e.g., Vegetables, Fish and Shellfish, etc.
As M. Jacques Pepin says, Happy Cooking!
ADDED: Here is a link to the original discussion thread which contains quite a huge number of recipe links to online sources.
Agree! Plus, with more than 1000 recipes and now that we're in a new season (winter instead of summer), there should be plenty of things to try that people won't have to repeat if they don't want to. And, lots of online recipes. Even though I cook and plan my menu from the actual book, sometimes it's great to be able to look-up a recipe online from the office or something.
Oh I'm so happy about this! I agree... there's a wealth of very good recipes in this book some of which are much better suited to colder weather. IIRC we liked everything we made first time around.
Count me among the happy ones. Dec. is usually so crazy, and having a book with fairly easy but reliable recipes is great. Yay!
It's nice that the set-up is a little less involved for smtucker this time.
I just opened the book last night, very impressed, glad I got it.
