Someone from Random House has put me on the cookbook publicity list and now these gorgeous cookbooks keep turning up in the mail.
I'm trying something new: Just for a month or so, I'm going to actually review new (ish) cookbooks in a brisk and timely fashion. I will cook ten recipes, assess, and move on. You can tell a lot from ten recipes. This last wallow through Barabara Lynch was fun, but I need to pick up the pace, at least for a while.
I'm starting with Mixt Salads by Andrew Swallow, which I received last spring. It's not "brand new" but it contains nothing but salad recipes. This appeals to me right now because
a. late summer/early fall produce
b. one-dish meals
After Mixt the lineup is:
Ethan Stowell's New Italian Kitchen
Thai Street Food by David Thompson
My Sweet Mexico by Fany Gerson
Ten recipes per book, brisk pace. Hold me to it, guys.
