September 2018 Eat Your Books Cookbook Club Summary & Future Selections

We have an incredible community here at Eat Your Books that has flowed into our Eat Your Books Cookbook Club and Sweet Eat Your Books Cookbook Club, places where we share our successes and fails in cooking and baking from specific cookbook titles. Here on the site our recipe notes feature – completed by members and our indexers – help share issues and tips. Checking the notes section on a recipe for any errata that may have been reported by the publisher or discovered by a member is always a wise idea.

This month we have been working through:

And, desserts are still being churned out in our second group that is working through Ottolenghi’s Sweet.

Our members have voted and our future month selections are re-shared at the end of this post. All club posts are tagged #EYBCookbookClub if you are looking for a particular month’s summary.

The photos below are just a few of the beautiful shots our members have been sharing; visit each group for more inspiration. Do not forget to also upload your photos and add your notes to your bookshelf at Eat Your Books. Instructions on uploading your photos and links to other helpful articles can be found here.

A few announcements before we share some highlights from this month’s options:

Please make sure you have entered all our giveaways. We have a few up right now that combine a piece of cookware or a Boos cutting board. This Fall we’ll have promotions that will offer a Mauviel roaster, Leuke products for pastry and chocolate work, Emile Henry stoneware as well as a set of Shun knives and I’m working on even more!

Every week new and books are being added. Find out more here. For more information on EYBDigital see our updated post for more information.
