Okay, I’ve been giving this a bit of a think and I’d really like to test this out with readers of this and my other food blogs – I’m starting The ReadCookEat Cookbook Book Club and Testing Academy – and you’re invited! The premise is this – we select one cookbook (or other foodie book) a month, each choose a different (or the same, doesnt’ really matter) recipe to make from it, photograph the results, discuss whether or not we thought it was worth the time/effort/expense and then share our results.
I’m not going to limit this to cookbooks but if there is any special equipment that helps prepare the dishes in question that can be part of our discussion. Perhaps if the book isn’t a cookbook but more a foodie type book we can suggest some recipes that are inspired by whatever we’re reading. I’m hoping that over time we’ll come up with a compendium of reviewed books so that readers will know what’s worth buying, what’s not worth the hype and what to completely avoid at all costs. I’d be completely open to suggestions for the month of August to start so either comment away or email me with what you think!
