couple of weeks ago we discussed the rise of cookbook clubs
here on the EYB blog.
Today indexed blog Food52 added to the trend by announcing its
inaugural community cookbook
club. Those who were paying close attention
may recall that the site hinted at starting a club last fall, and
now they are following through on that.
The first book that Food52 is exploring is Kate
McDermott's highly-regarded Art of the
Pie: A Practical Guide to Homemade Crusts, Fillings, and
Life. There are three simple steps to participate in this
inaugural club: 1) buy the book, 2) cook from it, and 3) report the
results. You can do the last step either via social media
(by sharing mini-reviews, photos, or tips you learned) or
by participating in the day-long Food52 Hotline discussion on Monday,
Kate McDermott will be joining the hotline
from noon to 1:00 p.m. Eastern (US) Standard Time. If
you have been thinking about giving an online cookbook
club a whirl this one may provide a good "test drive", especially
for the 93 of us EYB Members who already have the book.
Perhaps it will also push a few people over the edge to finally
picking up a copy of the excellent Art of the
