Cookbook of the Month June 2013: The Nomination Thread

Welcome to the discussion thread for June! Sorry for the slightly tardy post, but I've been enjoying myself in la belle France.

Summer is fast approaching so it's time to get thinking about what we want to do with all that lovely fresh produce. I just bought asparagus at the farmer's market for the first time this year so I'm definitely excited!

For more information on COTM, and to see previous choices, click here: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...

For nominations to be counted they must be in CAPS. There are no other rules, really, so discuss away! Nominations will close at 0800GMT on Saturday 18th May.

            Hey jpr54_1 -- I have "New Food of Life" and am ashamed to say I've never cooked from it.

            I doubt it could ever be a COTM because it's pretty pricey - there are only a few reasonably cheap used copies available online (my new copy cost $76!! wish I'd thought to look on ABE before I bought it...) but if you wanted to start a "cooking from..." thread for this book, I'm totally in.

            1. re: jpr54_1

              I would love 'Roots' in early fall - which seems like more of a 'root veggie' time of year.....?

            2. Welcome home and happy Mother's Day to all that it applies to. One more try:

              THE SOUL OF A NEW CUISINE
              THE WORLD OF STREET FOOD

                  I'm very interested in doing Soul of a New Cuisine but one or the all of us will be away for pretty much all of June. Of course I could always read later and add to the threads ...
