Welcome to the Weekend Cook and Tell. Every Wednesday we shake down the food sections of various national newspapers to create a weekend cooking project. We hope you will cook along with us and share your experiences, recipes, and photos here.
This year has been pretty incredible as far as cookbooks are concerned, and it seems like everywhere you look best cookbooks of 2009 lists are popping up. We shared our top ten with you last week, The New York Times weighed in last Thursday, and today Chicago Tribune shared their picks.
For this week's Weekend Cook and Tell challenge we want to hear about your favorite cookbooks of 2009, and which recipes you have tried. Have you attempted David Chang's pork buns from Momofuku, or perhaps Thomas Keller's incredible fried chicken from Ad Hoc at Home? Did Eugenia Bone's Well Preserved inspire you to start pickling and canning? Have you tried Jim Lahey's revolutionary no-knead bread recipe from My Bread? We want to hear all about your cookbook adventures this year, and which books proved to be your favorites.
Show us your photos on Photograzing (make sure to include "Cook and Tell" in your submission title) and tell us about your recipes here! If you'd like to blog the experience, please leave a link in the comments below. We'll post a round-up of your photos and recipes next Wednesday.
