How to participate

Here's a quick primer on how to join in the fun:

1) Get the Book

Pick up a copy of Julia Turshen's Small Victories online or pay a visit to your favorite local bookstore. Or, if you’re not ready to commit quite yet, check it out of your local library or borrow a copy from a friend.

2) Read & Cook

Rather self-explanatory, as this is one of the most important parts of participating in a cookbook club, right? If you’re not sure where to begin, take a page out of our Books Editor Ali Slagle's playbook. When she reviews a cookbook, she reads through the entire introduction as well as 15 headnotes and recipes, and then cooks at least three recipes.

3) Share Your Opinions

Join the Cookbook Club Facebook group here—we chat there all month long! Get in on the action by posting pictures of what you make and share reviews—fill everyone in on what you thought of the dish (remember to share the recipe name and even the page number, too, if possible). Plus, you can also share on social media: Post mini-reviews, photos, or tricks you pick up from the book by tagging content on Instagram with #f52cookbookclub—your photo might get featured in a post like this one!

Get Started

Not to worry if you don't have a copy of Small Victories yet. We have enough Julia Turshen content to keep you busy until it arrives:
