Guest Judge Announced for Animal, Vegetable, Miracle Round

I hope everyone is enjoying tucking into their copies of our current Cook the Books title, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life" by Barbara Kingsolver, Steven L. Hopp and Camille Kingsolver. I am delighted to announce that the Guest Judge for this round will be Andrea Meyers, a popular blogger, whose seasonal recipes and food photography are really spectacular.

Some of you may be familiar with or have participated in her great blog event, Grow Your Own, which featured posts about foods which were locally harvested, foraged, hunted or fished, which is precisely the subject of our featured book. Grow Your Own ran for four wonderful years and you can peruse the archive of roundups at the GYO link here. Andrea has a new feature on her blog, The Farm Project, which highlights the local farms in her neck of the woods, northern Virginia, which you may also want to check out.

As a reminder, the deadline for posts that discuss our book and highlight a dish inspired from its pages is November 25, 2013. Let me know that you have published your Cook the Books post by leaving a comment here or at the previous CTB post or by sending me an email at oldsaratogabooks atgmail dot com.

Happy reading!

Camilla and Foodycat: Those are wonderful posts for our Animal, Vegetable, Miracle round. You've both inspired me to seek out some more locally-produced farm fresh foods this winter!

Keep those great Cook the Books coming!

Hey, I am actually posted a few days before the deadline this time rather than night before or on the last day! ;-)

Really fun to delve back into an old favorite Rachel, thanks for such a great pick!

Welcome Gwen and Cathy to this round of Cook the Books. It is a pleasure to read your posts and I'm delighted you enjoyed our featured book. We really do have fun reading all kinds of novels and non-fiction about different facets of cooking and eating. Next up is "Baking Cakes in Kigali", which I just finished and loved. Still savoring it in my mind. I hope you can find time to join us for this or another future book!
