I am thinking that we should postpone ratatouille for October and cook veg terrines in September; what do you think?

The best ratatouille I made not too long ago is from River Cottage Veg. Would love to learn about other great recipes. Love ratatouille!

Not chosen yet, Linda. DOTM nominations close tomorrow evening and then the voting will start. I hope it is terrines but who knows :)

RATATOUILLE
Lots of tomatoes, eggplants and peppers will continue to ripen - perfect for a hearty ratatouille!

What cookbooks have you bought lately, or are you lusting after? August 2015

I only have Kitchen's book that covers just Turkey. Not at home now and from the top of my head the books from Eastern Med that I have and like but not necessarily cooked a lot from are: Arabesque (was a COTM), Food of Life, Great Book of Couscous by Copeland, Wolfert's Med book, and Flavours of Aleppo. I have many more Mediterranian books but can't recall the titles. Which tells me that I have too many and use too few, sigh...

I live in Ottawa and have not across a Mexican restaurant worth mentioning.

Thank you so much! Pretty easy and will be good with Indian spices and of course chiles.

Thank you for the link! I would love to get one of his books, but just one and it almost impossible to choose....

Thanks again! The icing does not sound too sweet but so rich :)

I'll post when I try it.

Thank you, Walker! The first one is not CI, right? Looks amazing, both of them. I wish the second blogger described his GF version; always on a lookout for good GF recipes.

Was the SE recipe from "Chinese Takeout Cookbook"? I made it awhile back and liked it well enough.

It is an old book, you know :) I love and always use anchovies. My favorite Italian deli sells salted ones by weight - so convenient!

My go-to is from The Vegetarian Epicure by Anna Thomas. Love Caeser salad! Maybe we should start a thread if you are willing to post about your tasting results?

I have very old Kindle too and thought that iPad would work much better. Now I have an iPad but still not comfortable with e-cookbooks while loving reading regular books on it. So, for me e-cookbooks do not work and I would rather reduce my collection than use ebooks.

Lily am, why did to switch to Paprika? I am using Pepperplate but keep hearing good things about Paprika. Would love to hear your opinion.

Today in the "Scratch & Dent" section of bookoutlet.com there are some well priced books, I.e.
Thug Kitchen $10
Heritage $15
One Good Dish $9

I thought that fried chicken being a Southern dish will generate a lot of discussion in Sep COTM which will include other Southern books in addition to the chosen one. And that the recipes will spill into Sep DOTM making it even more interesting. There is no intention to keep the projects on a similar track but sometime it might work out that way.

It was just a "btw" comment on my part, nothing more serious than that.

Jo, have you tried the one in "Flour"? Just curious.

FRIED CHICKEN. That would go really well with Sep COTM which is A Gracious Plenty and all other Southern books. And I checked - it has not been a DOTM,
