We hope to inspire, educate, and encourage as we cook our way through Mark Bittman’s book together. From vegans to pescetarians to those who love indulging in the semi-occasional (or frequent) burger and fries, everyone is welcome to join in on the fun!
The recipes in The Food Matters Cookbook are so adaptable and open for interpretation – it’s almost as if they were designed for a project like this. It is simply amazing to see one dish through the eyes of so many unique and creative individuals each week. Vegetables are having a moment, indeed – and shining brighter and brighter every day.
Here’s how it works: Each week, one member of the group chooses a recipe from the book. This member is the “host” for the week. The group cooks the selected dish, and everyone posts their take on the recipe on their own blogs on Monday. The host includes the full recipe in his or her post, and the rest of the group links to the host’s blog for the recipe. Then, everyone heads over here and adds their own links as comments, so we can see how everyone fared!
Active Members: To be a host, you must be an active member with a 50% participation rate. We always enjoy seeing new faces so feel free to try your hand at a few recipes and if you’d like to commit to being a host, contact us and we can add you to the waiting list.
You are welcome to join in at any time, on any post, even if you are not an Active Member; you can simply comment with your link, and we’ll also add you to our Pinterest board for that particular recipe.
If you can’t get your hands on the cookbook, let us know and we will email you the recipe 1-2 weeks in advance. We want to make sure this project is accessible to everyone!
If you don’t have a blog but want to participate, that rocks, too! Cook along with us and add your own thoughts and comments. We hope to hear from you and see photos of your own interpretations on our Facebook page, too!
