Cookbook of the Month August 2013: The Nomination Thread

I know I am a little late to the game here but I would love to nominate David Tanis' book HEART OF THE ARTICHOKE and/or A PLATTER OF FIGS. I love his fresh, simple and tasty meals (and stories) which are very Chez Panisse (is that even an adjective?????)

Best place in the area to buy exotic/specialty fruits and vegetables

Thank you for the help. Does anyone have any info on Aztec or LA Specialty Produce? I havent been able to get them to call or email me back.

Best place in the area to buy exotic/specialty fruits and vegetables

Good afternoon everyone- I am an amateur cook who is working on a cookbook project that involves a fair amount of specialty produce. (Things like micro greens, edible flowers, wide assortment of mushrooms, etc). Does anyone know of a great place to find these things in the area? Or on the flip side does anyone know if LA Specialty Produce or Aztec Specialty Produce will sell to me as an individual (and not a restaurant/business)? Thank you in advance for any help! Cheers- Justin

Salt (or even vinegar) packed anchovies in East Valley

Hey everyone! Does anyone know where I can get some salt packed (or even oil packed) anchovies? Most of my local supermarkets do not carry anchovies of any kind. Thank you in advance.

December 2011 Cookbook of the Month Nominations

Well in the few I made there was not a bomb in the butch. I am definitely partial to the Penne with Asparagus and Red Peppers, and the Grilled Swordfish. Also the desserts look so delectable (I have not attempted one yet). All in all it does not look like it will happen this month, but maybe in a future month. I love reading everyone's thoughts on food in whatever we decide to do for December! And thank you for making me feel so welcome in my first posts.

December 2011 Cookbook of the Month Nominations

Good Morning! I am new to the boards, have lurked for sometime and have finally decided to jump in the pool! My nomination would be for the UNION SQUARE CAFE COOKBOOK. I have been a huge fan of this classic restaurant cookbook and have rarely been dissapointed in the few dishes I have made. The cooking is a beautiful mingling of Italian and French cusines with a little Mediterranean thrown in. And you have to try the bar nuts!
