I also noticed that their was a waiting list for the book at my local library.
Picking up from my library today to take a look.
Thanks for checking and pointing that out. I checked my library system and it isn’t available locally or on the statewide loan system. Accessibility is and always has been an important consideration when choosing our COTM, which is why we generally wait a few months after a book has been released before nominating it, wait until at least US/UK/Canada editions are all released, and wait until libraries have some time to get the book. I suspect the issue with this book is that people want to show support for Ukraine, and that’s great, but if it means the book isn’t easily available for COTM participants, it’s a problem.
COOKING FROM YOUR PANTRY / Nancy Silverton
FRESH MEXICO by Marcela Valladolid
I liked Six Seasons. I think it won or was nominated for a James Beard.
But some recipes didn’t work out like baking/roasting lettuce in the oven.
I checked Mamushka out from the library and did not think I would make much from it.
Not even going to keep it and re-read which I usually do after my first quick glance of a cookbook.
It was pretty though!
I grill all kind of greens on a low setting. Needs to be ‘massaged’ with oil.
I’m enjoying both books. Reading through them first. Have plenty of grains on hand.
Any interest in THE WOK?
I’d be very much interested, but it has only been out for a couple weeks, so I was thinking it’s too soon.
Just a reminder that nominations close at noon tomorrow, EDT. Get your last-minute suggestions in now!
Also interested in The Wok in the future, but I’d prefer to wait until it’s fully indexed on EYB, too.
GRAINS FOR EVERY SEASON
COOK, EAT, REPEAT
I’d be keen to do a Food Lab/The Wok combo some time in the near future.
