The Cookbook Guru

Return to my Books on Food page.

wooden_spoonsThe The Cookbook Guru was a blogging cookbook club. Each month, the club featured a cookbook and issued a challenge to cook from that book. At the end of every month, The Cookbook Guru posted all of the tested recipes by members of the book club and provided an evaluation of the book. As of 2016, The Cookbook Guru was “shelved” and no longer active.

The following are my posts of tested recipes (the good, the bad and the ugly!) posted as my contributions to the cookbook club.
