Thanks to members who participated this month by reading Born Round by Frank Bruni and publishing a review on their blogs. Please spend a few moments seeing what they thought of the book.
In December members have a free choice of reviewing any cookbook. This is a good time to incorporate the Kitchen Reader into your end-of-year posts. If you publish a “best of” list on your blog, consider linking up to the Kitchen Reader when you mention your favourite cookbook of the year. It could be a book published in 2014, but need not be. We look forward to seeing which cookbooks everyone enjoyed this year.
New members are always welcome to our friendly group. Find out more about us and then email to join!
