February 2019 Eat Your Book Cookbook Club Summary

We polled our members and April through June selections are shared at the bottom of this post.

Now to this month’s highlights:

This month I made recipes from Season (Curry leaf popcorn chicken) and SUQAR (Honey-citrus madeleines and Ricotta fritters) and they were fantastic. I have a Pie Squared recipe planned for midweek. Other members have shared photos for Season in the group and uploaded those photos at EYB here.

Kimberly K made the “Chicken thighs with cherry fennel bbq sauce from Season. I really liked trying new flavors in this sauce. Delicious.”

Robin C made the “Chicken pot slab pie from Pie Squared. It was fantastic”

Anastasia B made the Warm lentil salad recipe from Leite’s Culinaria, “
This is a wonderful, velvety side dish. Delicious, subtle flavor. I omitted the bacon… just wasn’t feeling it. I honestly think that it would have overwhelmed the flavor. I will make this again.”

Mabel S made: “the Dungeness crab with cellophane noodles from Slanted Door….We have been cooking this dish for many years from an article about Charles Phan which was slightly different than in the cookbook. For this I followed the cookbook. It is a very easy recipe! Highly recommend as it is a family favorite.”

There are many other wonderful photos in the group.

Darcie B “I finally made the Coffee and walnut financiers. They are good, but I am not getting much walnut flavor. Maybe some walnut oil with the browned butter would help. I’m taking them to a get together this evening – let’s see what the neighbors think of them!” (The neighbors loved them!)
