Cookbook of the Month May 2013: The Nomination Thread
Spring is finally in the air, thank goodness, after what seems to have been the longest winter ever in England. But as the saying goes in my native Yorkshire, "ne'er cast a clout 'til May's out!".

Anyhow, it's time to turn our attention to the next book(s) we want to cook from. Please note that all nominations should be in CAPS. For more on how Cookbook of the Month works or to see an archive of books we’ve already cooked from this link can give you lots of information: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
The deadline for nominations is 0800 GMT on Monday 15th April, which is late on Sunday 14th for those of you in North America.

I've got my Thai exchange student from a few years ago and her culinary student friend coming to stay with me--they'll be excellent critics.
THE SOUL OF A NEW CUISINE by Marcus Samuelsson
Yup... bringing this one back for a second (or is it third) outing. My first choice.
I really like the idea of 'wichcraft: Craft a Sandwich into a Meal--And a Meal into a Sandwich by Tom Colicchio. I never was much of a sandwich lover but lately I've been growing ever more fond of certain combinations...
