We spend more time talking about cooking from cookbooks than we spend cooking from cookbooks, and it’s time to change that. Once a month, we’ll have Cookbook Club—a meal planned entirely from a cookbook or two, new or old, big or small—and we’ll ask our community members to do the same.
We want to read Laurie Colwin's words over and over again, but we also want to cook her recipes. So for our next cookbook club, where the editors each cook a recipe from a book or two and write about their experience (and we ask our community members to do the same), we're cooking from Laurie Colwin's Home Cooking and More Home Cooking. They're classic books, which means you might have cooked from them, too. So we want to know what the standout recipes are! Lead us to the gems.
Tell us: What recipes should be on our cookbook club menu? We'll be looking at the comments section below for the hot tips. And be sure to check back to see how all the recipes panned out.

ADDENDUM: Since you had so much to say about Laurie's recipes, we want YOU to cook from her books. Cook from Home Cooking or More Home Cooking and share what you've made with us: Take a photo of your finished dish (or your cooking experience) and tag it with #f52cookbookclub on Instagram (or simply email it to [email protected]). Share a review of the recipe on Twitter (or email us a blurb). We'll round up your photos and your commentary in a post at the end of the month.
