I am hereby announcing our formal kick-off for the next round of Cook the Books. I (Rachel, The Crispy Cook) will be your host and hope you all will enjoy reading John and Matt Lewis Thorne’s book “Outlaw Cook” as much as I have. My friend Myra has been a fan of Thorne’s food writing for many years and when I finally got my hands on a copy of “Outlaw Cook” last year it went right to the top of my teetering bedside pile. I have been reading and re-reading bits of this collection of food writing ever since and am so pleased to share it with you all in our online book club.
John Thorne has graciously agreed to serve as our Guest Judge for this round, which will end January 23, 2012. From now until then, anyone is welcome to join in the fun by reading the book and then posting up your thoughts about it and any dish (or two) that you may be inspired to cook up. Let me know that your post is live by leaving a comment below or by sending me an email at oldsaratogabooks AT gmail dOTcom.
I hope that everyone finds some time to relax and read during this busy holiday season.
-Rachel, The Crispy Cook
