Welcome to the Stained Page News Cookbook Club.
Every two months, we cook our way through a different cult classic cookbook.
What’s a cult classic, when it comes to cookbooks, when it comes to this club? I am glad you asked:
A book from days of yore. (2010 and earlier.)
A book that was and perhaps continues to be under-appreciated.
A book that nonetheless found a small yet enthusiastic audience, whether for its loving exploration of a particular regional cuisine or detailing of the minutiae of an intricate technique or just really, really, really, really good writing.
A really solid, spectacularly written cookbook.
My (our?) goals here are:
To fill gaps in our collective cookbook knowledge.
To read and appreciate authors that ought to be more widely read and better appreciated.
To cook from these books.
To read what others have written about these books.
To discuss these books with each other.
To generally have a nice time.
Sound good? Stay tuned.
