Cookbook of the Month - Sept 2022 Nominations

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a fun and delicious August. While there is a lot of August still ahead of us, it is time to start thinking about September in the COTM universe. So let’s get rolling with some nominations for our September Cookbook of the Month. 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, August 18, at 10am EDT. After the nominations are counted, I will post a voting thread with the top contenders.

To see a list of our past selections, visit the COTM archive. And don’t forget that there is still plenty of time to cook from our current selection, Flavors of the Sun, which has some great recipes for summer.

> I DREAM OF DINNER by Ali Slagle.

EVERYONE’S TABLE by Gregory Gourdet. Someone reported on a recipe on the Caribbean COTQ thread that looked fantastic, and it reminded me that I have this book.

SALAD FREAK both sentences.

SABADA by Adeena Sussman


I’ll go ahead and second this and include the EYB link. The author is a cookbook ghostwriter who has co-authored the Chrissy Teigen books, among others. I’m afraid this book might not catch on this month because we’re in month two of a Middle Eastern book, but it’s good to get it on the radar.

If you like spending time with your oven, come nominate bak8ng books to close out the year, too.

THE FOOD LAB, CARMINES COOKBOOK, and MESA MEXICANA make up a complete sentence.

Was happy to see my library has Ali Slagle’s book. Be forewarned, ingredient measurements are not with the list of ingredients at the side, they are in the recipe text. They are in bold so that helps. I prefer to see the ingredients and the amounts at a glance the way the majority of my cookbooks have them. What about you?

Reminder: nominations are supposed to close tomorrow, but we currently don’t have any book that has gotten a substantial number of nominations. If you see something nominated that looks good, please add your nomination. I could use some separation between the books so it is clear which to pass on to voting. I am going to extend the nominations for an extra 24 hours to see if we get a few more nominations. Nominations will close on the 19th at 10am EDT.

ETHIOPIA - can’t believe I forgot to nominate that one.

I second COOK, EAT, REPEAT .

COOK EAT REPEAT is a sentence

I finally get the “sentence” joke - just had it happen to me. :slight_smile:
