Help Us Decide Our Cookbook Club's Upcoming Books

August 11, 2017

Our Cookbook Club has been busy with Melissa Clark’s Dinner: Changing the Game, and if you haven’t started yet, there’s still plenty of time to participate with it this month—head here to find out how.

We don’t want to divert you away from sheet pan suppers entirely, but in an effort to plan ahead—especially for library reserving and book purchasing and shipping purposes—we want you to take a moment to vote for the cookbooks we’ll all explore together in the coming months.

To have your say on what cookbooks we'll cover in October and beyond, fill out this Google Form by Monday, August 14. Next week, we’ll announce the line-up of cookbooks for the next few months of the Club.

While you’re waiting for the results to roll in, scroll through a few of the delicious dinners our members have been whipping up, below. And, to help you get in on the action this month we’ve got two copies of Dinner: Changing the Game to give away. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post by Sunday night—winners will be selected Monday morning. (Giveaway open to US addresses only.)

Lunch: Melissa Clark's quick navy bean & ham soup & a slice of homemade sourdough. Perfect for this dreary, rainy day.
