February COTM is Japanese Month

The winner of the February 2012 Cookbook of the Month vote is Japanese Month which includes WASHOKU by Elizabeth Andoh and JAPANESE COOKING: A SIMPLE ART by Shizuo Tsuji.

Please use this thread to discuss techniques, ingredients, meal planning, along with interesting tidbits about these books and recipes.

On February 1st I will post the official threads for reporting.

          Arrrgh, sorry I wasn't more exact. Thanks to those who helped clear this up.

      1. LulusMom,

        I would willing to step in as a coordinator. I will likely need some help, but COTM has been rewarding so it is time for me to give back.

        1. I am thrilled to announce that we do have a new coordinator for the next 6 months. L. Nightshade has volunteered to take over. A big round of applause to her!
