Cooking From "X" Cookbook threads. Is there a list of all these threads on Home Cooking?

In addition to the active COTM thread and the COTM archives, I've seen a couple of "Cooking From "X" threads on Chowhound.

I was wondering whether there was a list of those links somewhere, similar to the COTM archive?

Here's a link to the COTM archive if folks are interested:

http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...

I just saw this Ottolenghi's Plenty thread:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/706598

and then there's a Cooking from Around My French Table that pre-dated this month's COTM. We've linked back to reviews there this month as appropriate:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/731319

I've added bookmarks to all my EYB books where I know there's a Chowhound thread so I can be sure to post a review and photo so I'm just wondering. . . are there more threads like this out there?

  1. Well... at the end of March 2009 I started a cookalong thread with the book, Bon Appetit Y'All by Virginia Willis. The original thread grew so large that a second thread was started. Along the way Ms Willis popped in every now and then to cheer us on and clarify various issues. Here are the links:
    Part 1:
    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/607868

    Part 2:
    http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/616454

    In Sept. 2009 BAYA went on to become co-COTM with Screen Doors and Sweet Tea by Martha Hall Foose. That link is in the archives.

    1. gosh what a great idea it would be to have an archive like that, or even just a thread. i know i look at the COTM archive often, and assume others do too. not sure why it is more effective than searching, but sometimes it definitely is.

      here's another thread covering David Thompson's books including "Thai Food":

        Gio and qianning, thanks so much. I hope others see this thread and post any links they know of. I'd love to be able to add to existing threads if they exist!

      2. I just spotted another one on the Home Cooking board:

                1. When we cooked from Jamie Oliver's "Naked Chef" books last March I thought we had a COTM adjunct thread for his other books but on a recent search, I came up empty handed. Of course it's entirely possible I'm just imagining this!! Posting here and hoping someone can clarify.

                  Here's a link to an adjunct thread for The Italian Country Table: Home Cooking from Italy's Farmhouse Kitchens by Lynne Rosetto Kasper:

                    I think it would be really helpful if the adjunct threads were also listed on the COTM thread. They're almost always related to the COTM, so it wouldn't hurt to have at least a link added at the bottom.

                        ETA: I just clicked your link but that took me to the main thread. Having said that, go figure, the link to the adjunct thread was in that thread so here it is:

                            I honestly think something odd is going on with that thread. I simply could not find it when I searched recently. Thanks for finding it though Gio, it brought back great memories. There were some wonderful meals shared in that thread...I'm so glad to have this back as a resource...and you better believe I've bookmarked it this time around!!

                                            Personally, I think there's too much stuff stickied to the top of the home cooking board. I'd rather just bookmark this thread.

                                              I think people have generally put links to COTM companion/adjunct threads in the master thread for the month. It's a good idea, because then they're findable through the COTM Archive page.

                                              1. re: Caitlin McGrath

                                                wonder if it is possible to do an archive page for "cooking from x book" threads? May be unmanageable; but I know I use the COTM archive page pretty often, and it would be great to have a similar consolidated page for these books as well,

                                                1. re: qianning

                                                  I like this idea. Perhaps the dialogues could be removed, though...use just the titled links, please. If the links were in the archive we could still add to it from time to time.

                                                  Just a thought: All these cookbook threads are not COTM books, but does that matter?

                                                  1. re: Gio

                                                    I might be misunderstanding, but I think the point of this thread is most of the threads we're linking are not COTM threads and, therefore, there isn't an "archive" or index for them. (Oddly, the DCOTMs were not made part of the official archive... For the most part, the adjunct threads are mentioned somewhere in the master threads for the applicable COTM, but they aren't always easy to find...)

                                                    The problem with trying to create an archive page for non-COTM threads is that the archive page is maintained by Chow or Chowhound, not by us, the users. If we all bookmarked (or "saved to profile") THIS thread, we could find it easily and keep adding to it over time.

                                                    As far as the chat in this thread (this post of mine included). I think it would be easy enough for each of us to "report" any of our own posts that have no links in them and ask the mods to remove our comment so this thread can be a better reference because it will be links only. Hopefully the mods would oblige.

                                                    If Breadcrumbs wanted to, I'll bet she could report her OP and ask the mods to edit in a sentence or two of her choosing about Bookmarking/Saving to Profile this thread so it can be an ongoing resource and to keep the chat to a minimum.

                                                    1. re: The Dairy Queen

                                                      FWIW, I believe these threads are a huge asset to Chow/Chowhound. When you look at their Alexa stats the Chowhound HomeCooking board draws far more posts/traffic than any other Chow or Chowhound board.

                                                      I believe it would be in Chow/Chowhound's best interests to preserve this info and make it more accessible/easily identifiable to all.

                                                      Of course we can bookmark this thread and, even save it to our profile but that doesn't help folks who don't know about it. I found the COTM because it was "stickied" (is that a word?) at the top of the Home Cooking thread. I think a thread like this would also attract and retain readers & contributors alike. I'd love for our community of cooks to grow as I secretly fear that one day Chow will pull the plug on all this and all our efforts will be lost. Perish the thought!

                                                          As far as how newcomers can find out about this thread, if we commit to keeping it current, it will pop to the top of Home COoking whenever we post to it and people will see it then.

                                                          Furthermore, it might not be a bad idea to ask the COTM organizer (sorry to add to the COTM's organizers long list of duties) to provide a link THIS thread whenever she provides a link to the COTM archive.

                                                          Of course, there's no harm in asking chow/chowhound to maintain an archive of non-COTM cookbook discussions. But unlike COTM, there isn't a set schedule of when such threads get created. These threads are pretty occasional and random. It might be hard for them to know when to add a thread to the archive. One of us users might have to take responsibility for notifying whomever at Chow/Chowhound needs to be notified. I'm not even sure who you would ask. Maybe post a query on site talk.

                                                          Personally I think all of Home Cooking is the archive for cookbook discussions. :). I bookmark the threads I really want to find again.

                                                    Hi Siegal... Here's a link to the up-to-date List:

                                                    The list is in the first post under the OP.

                                                    ETA: I just saw your post on the linked thread...

                                                3. We need to get this list made into a sticky, it is such a valuable reference. Many of the "cooking from" threads, I haven't posted to... yet. But I intend to. And I like to be able to find these threads when I am selecting a recipe from one of the cookbooks in question.

                                                    I had some of the "cooking from" threads saved to my profile, whether I had posted in them or not, and now I have saved this thread to my profile for reference.

                                                            I have made a list of all the links posted in this thread. Should I post it here - or- make a new thread?

                                                            I've eliminated all our chats and kept the titles and links only. No credit to whomever posted the link.
                                                            The list is not alphabetized but simply in the order in which it was posted.

                                                            It's a Very Long List, but much easier to locate the link one would be looking for...

Having these links in a thread which can be bookmarked or archived will make it easier for people who want to locate specific reports from cookbooks other than Cook Books of the Month.

                                                                Contributors to this list are:

                                                                1. re: Gio

                                                                  Thank you, Gio - that's an incredible resource to have in list form! The only real edits I'd suggest are to group the two Oaxaca al Gusto threads together, and eliminate the second (duplicate) listing for Good to the Grain.

                                                                  BTW, if you add a space after the closing parenthesis or bracket before hitting return it gets rid of that annoying transfer to the next line.

                                                                  1. re: Gio

                                                                    Thanks Gio! What a handy resource. I can already see how much time this will save me having this handy list.

                                                                    1. re: Gio

                                                                      Wow. What a list.

                                                                      My comment would be whether they should be ordered in any particular way, and how will we keep it up to date as new threads are added. I love that this is a clean list. Can we agree that when someone adds a "cooking from" thread to the forum, they will also add a link on this new thread that Gio is making? And that we will keep that thread free from discussion, and comparatively "clean", with just new links added? Because, let's face it, we do have a tendency to discuss, but too much discussion would make future entries hard to follow.

                                                                      This will be a great resource for all of us in the future. I know that I refer to the COTM archives often, and it will be great to have all the other "cooking from" threads in one place. Many of them are just as good as a COTM thread.

                                                                      1. re: MelMM

                                                                        Is there anyway Gio's list could be "archived" and added to the same way the COTM archive is?

                                                                    2. re: Gio

Other than noticing some pesky parenthesis problems, I don't have any changes. Thank you for doing this, Gio! (And to BC whose idea it was to start such a thread...).

                                                                                          I think Flex Table was also pre cotm. Which reminds me, I need to revisit that book.

                                                                                          Great job gio.
