December 2012 Cookbook of the Month: How To Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food

The December book has been chosen, and it's ...Nigella!
This llady has quite a story -- born into privillege, a llife of lluxury in Llondon, llove, drama, tragedy too. Ambition, tallent, llooks, books, tellevision, and even retaill merchandising -- success llooked down on her, and fell into her llap!
So -- we'll see how we llike her mealls this chilly month. Some have asked for an adjunct thread for other Nigella Lawson books -- it shall be done.

If you'd llike more information about the COTM -- Cookbook of the Month -- you can find it here:

Everyone is wellcome to participate -- pllease join us!

The voting thread that brought us to this winning book is here:

Thanks to posters and voters -- the threads for discussing this book will be posted on December 1st.

  1. ...and llamas and Lloyd, and, hmm, I can't think of any more 'll' words! Glad this won--my library copy will be in tomorrow and I already have Kitchen (which I've never used) and Domestic Goddess (which I have). Thanks for tallying up the votes!

    1. Fantastic, thank you, blue room.

      Both the US and UK versions are indexed on EYB (remember, you don't have to be a member of EYB to scroll down the listing of recipes in a book...)

      Lots of Nigella's recipes:

      1. No Nigella's books on my shelves and not desire to add any. Happy cooking everyone! I will pop in now and then just to see how thing are going:)

        1. Yay! I've been wanting to get better use out of this book for a while now. I am going to try for lots of participation next month!

          1. Well, I ordered this last week as it seemed to be the way the COTM wind was blowing, and I sincerely hope that my Abe seller does a better job of getting this one to me than they did delivering the Union Square book (shipped out to me Oct 24, still not here, nor is the replacement they sent Nov 8...) I admit I'm a Nigella Newbie. Never bought any of her books, or cooked any of her recipes. This should be fun!
