Cookbook of the Month for October 2012 : 660 Curries
- blue room Sep 20, 2012 06:15 PM
Calling all curry cooks!
We will cook from “660 Curries” by Raghavan Iyer this coming month.
I have this book now and the more I see the more I like/learn. Plenty of curries, and extras too --
“…biryanis, breads, pickles, relishes, raitas, and more.” Back-of-the-book blurbs include Madhur Jaffrey saying the book is very authentic, and a treasure. Inside, rice and spice and everything nice!
On October 1st I’ll put up threads for recipe reports. *Everyone* is welcome to cook and comment.
This gives an overview of the Cookbook of the Month (COTM) as well as a list of all the past books: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
October 2009 was an Indian food month also.
And here, the voting thread that led to the this month’s choice:
I'm excited, think of it, six hundred and sixty!
Great! I picked the book up from the library tonight and I expect it will be in my Amazon cart before the end of October.
Great job Blue Room!
Happy to cook from 660 Curries and hope that the other two books will be selected soon. I am hosting my dinner club's Indian dinner towards the end of October and hope to pick a few dishes from this book. Love-love Indian food and though 660 Curries is a new book for me, a couple of dishes that I made from it (taken out of a library) were very good.
Well Done, Blue Room... I've had the book quite a long time and have cooked several recipes which we liked very much so I'm looking forward to an in depth cooking session in October. Here's a list of the recipes and ingredients from the Eat Your Books web site:
