Eat, drink, and be
~scary, for soon appears the thin new moon, and October nominations are due.
~ It’s frightful, but the need to decide witch book to cook is upon us.
~It’s creepy, but the grave decision we must make fast approaches, as if on eight lively legs …
Come and welcome, all. Each month COTM participants choose a cookbook to evaluate. Cook or just comment -- everyone is invited, ghosts can post, and the undead shall be read.
If you wish, you can channel our past (and passed) authors by visiting the musty archives here:
And then, please put your skulls and skills together to unearth some Edgar Allan Pie-worthy nominees for October.

The books most nominated will advance to the voting thread.
Please put your nomination(s) in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS like this:
Super great intro you've given us Blueroom. Now we have to put on our bewitching caps and come up with a cookbook that gets us through October and on to Fangsgiving.
I'm going to throw a couple books out there and see if anyone bites. With autumn fast approaching my mind travels to starches and spicy foods. There has been talk in the past of some of these books, so here's hoping there's enough interest this time to get them selected.
THE SOUTH AMERICAN TABLE- Maria Beaz Kijac
THAI FOOD-David Thompson (or something else thai, any other reccomendations? Real Thai? It Rains Fishes?)
THE COOKING OF THE EASTERN MEDITTERANEAN-Paula Wolfert
I hope that's not too many.....
I'll second THE SOUTH AMERICAN TABLE. I considered nominating it for September, but decided it might be better to wait a month. I think this is a book that will have a nice variety of dishes that will suit those of us in the South still working on late summer produce, and those further North, who are starting to think of heartier, cool weather fare.
October, scary indeed....i'm still working my way through recipes i wanted to make in August....
