It’s time already! I’m just now going to start cooking from our current book, but it’s also time to look to the future.
What book (and possibly accompanying website) would you like to cook from in November?
To nominate a book, put the title in ALL CAPS in the comments below. Titles not in all caps will not be counted as a nomination. You may nominate as many books as you wish. We do ask that you make your nominations with the intent of cooking along should the book be selected.
Nominations will close on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 10pm Pacific Time, U.S. After the nominations are counted, I will post a voting thread with the top contenders.

ETHIOPIA - by Yanni Gebreyesus
THE WOK - J. Kenji López-Alt
KOREAN VEGAN - Joanne Lee Molinaro I AM FROM HERE - Vishwesh Bhatt. This one is probably too new, as it just came out in August. But I want to start putting it on the radar. The author is a James Beard Award-winning chef in Oxford, MS. The food is Southern, and Indian, and everything in between, and I want to cook it all.
Sabrina Ghayour has 6 books out. Do you think we should narrow it down a bit? I’ve got Persiana, Sirocco, and Bazaar. I don’t think I’ve cooked from any of them! So doing a month of her work might light a fire under me.
I would really like that because besides for two recipes, I haven’t had time to cook from the book yet. I’m currently out of town, then have a houseguest coming as soon as I get home (and will be mostly on the road with my guest looking at property for her to buy, so not much time for cooking). I do plan on cooking heavily from it once all that is over, but it will just give me the last week of the month. Sooo…
MAUNIKA GOWARDHAN MONTH extended
Also I haven’t seen I DREAM OF DINNER nominated this time, which is surprising, since it’s been in the running for the past few. So adding that to the mix.
