Yesterday, on the Tenth Day of Christmas, we introduced you to Eat Your Books and its List of Lists of 2012 Best Cookbooks, offering you the chance to win the #2 cookbook on that list.
Today we’re featuring another list of lists: Eater’s “Meta Listicle of Listicles” of 2012’s Best Cookbooks. And again, we’re buying a copy of the #2 cookbook on the list to give away to one Cooks&Books&Recipes reader. This time the lucky winner will receive Canal House Cooks Every Day, by Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton (Andrews McMeel).
The award-winning authors of the Canal House Cooking series offer their first comprehensive collection of recipes by home cooks for home cooks. This magnificent compilation celebrates the everyday practice of simple cooking and the enjoyment of eating — two of the greatest pleasures in life. Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton’s new cookbook Canal House Cooks Every Day, inspired by their popular daily blog Canal House Cooks Lunch, offers a year of seasonal recipes for the home cook.
Canal House Cooks Every Day is a handsome, red cloth-covered, 384-page book with nearly 250 recipes and over 130 lush photographs and illustrations. Christopher and Melissa use the best seasonal ingredients available to cook every day. Their recipes reflect the seasons, their appetites, their cravings, the occasions, and/or the demands of feeding their own busy families. This instant classic includes recipes for dishes as simple as a lunch of splendid summer tomato sandwiches or crackers spread with preserved lemon butter with smoked salmon and fresh chives, to more complex meals like braised chicken with wild mushrooms and fine egg noodles.
In addition to the recipes, the cookbook includes menus for all the great holidays throughout the year, plus twelve intimate essays — on picking a ripe tomato, making your own pasta, or foraging for wild mushrooms — that introduce each month and capture the feeling and vibe of that special time of the year. Cooking through this book, readers will become better cooks and gain an increased appreciation for the wonderful flavors and aromas of a home-cooked meal.
