June 2019 Eat Your Books Cookbook Club Summary

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.

This month we’ve been cooking from the following titles:

See the bottom of this post for July through September options.

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

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:


Now to this month’s highlights:

I made a few dishes from Red Hot Kitchen– mostly sauces and marinades so no photos. I plan on making a noodle dish this week and will share a photo when I do. Member Lisa S. has filled the group with dozens of gorgeous photos from Around the French Table just like the first picture below.

    There seems to be a focus on newer cookbooks in the monthly cooking club. What about a retro/throwback category?

    While I do have something a new cookbook buying habit, I'm getting more selective now, but I also have a ton of older cookbooks – some famous classics (like Hazan's "Essentials"), some lesser well known. I periodically cycle through my older cookbooks to cook old favorites and discover dishes that I've missed. I can't be the only one who has a pile of older cookbooks sitting around worth some love.

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
