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

Breadcrumbs Apr 11, 2011 07:01 AM

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_month_archive

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?

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

          Great job gio.

              I think it's Simon Hopkinson, not Anthony. Again, the list looks excellent.

              I never knew that adding a space after a paren would fix the spacing problem! I always have added some otherwise unnecessary punctuation!

                  The list below contains links to non COTM cookbooks Chowhounders have cooked from in the past. 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.

                  Breadcrumbs who started the original list, Gio, qianning, buttertart, Caitlin McGrath, BigSal, MelMM, The Dairy Queen.

                    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.

                        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.

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

                                If any one is interested...

                                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...

                                  "Contributors to this list are:

                                        I'd say hammer out the list here and then once everyone's commented on it, make it a new thread. That way that new thread stays pristine!

                                          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 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.

                                                      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,

                                                        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?

                                                          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.

                                                            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.

                                                          Good point, about the adjunct threads being available through the main COTM thread.

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