Cookbook review: Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook

Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook is an amazing collection of seasonal recipes put together by Nancy Vienneau and Gigi Gaskins.

These recipes look amazing.  I can’t wait to try them.  A lot of them.  One of the main thing I love about the collection of recipes is that none of the recipes use cream of…, or any other premade concoction.  The recipes are organized by months and what is in season at that time.  Summer recipes are cooler and lighter.  Winter recipes are heartier and warmer.

This cookbook includes all kinds of recipes.  Main courses, sides, veggies, dips, soups, desserts, etc.  There is also a special cocktail or mixed drink for each month highlighting some ingredient in season.  And in December’s chapter they include a few gift ideas – bath salt soaks, spice mixes, etc.

Some of the recipes call for finer/pricier/harder to come by ingredients.  I’m okay with that considering this book is not meant to be a everyday use cookbook but more of a special occasion cookbook.

I am very excited about adding this to my library collection of cookbooks.  As soon as my pears and figs are ripe in our orchard, I will be completing many recipes on my want to try list from this book. 

Note: I did receive a copy of this book for free to read and review.  The opinions above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
