Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook

The Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook by Nancy Vienneau is based on recipes which have been dishes actually cooked/baked for Third Thursday Community Potluck. It's hosted by a group of friend and strangers, and each month offers a menu that celebrates the bounty of the moment.

That was my favorite aspect of the cookbook - that each month is a chapter based on produce that is at the peak of it's season. It makes it easy to pick out new recipes to try.

The recipes are fresh and flavorful sounding. No canned mixes or boxed items. These are the types of dishes that I would LOVE to see at a potluck. These aren't "potluck" dishes per se. These dishes can all come together to make a nice at home meal.

The pictures are gorgeous. Just looking at them make me hungry. The recipes sound delicious.

Unfortunately, this didn't turn out to be my type of cookbook. The majority of the recipes seem to fancy for us and would require more patience in the kitchen than I have. This would be a perfect cookbook for someone who is into a bit more of gourmet type cooking or those liking to experiment with a large range of flavors.

Disclaimer: This book was given to me by BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.      


  1. These books are frustrating. It's not that I don't like to experiment, it's just that I have a limited budget and I don't have the money to waste if it turns out badly. It is frustrating because I would love to add more variety but stick to old standbys so as not to waste money.

    1. So true! If it was just myself that I was cooking for I would love experimenting with elaborate ingredients, knowing I'd probably like it! But even though my kids aren't picky, they don't like certain combinations of food so recipes like these can tend to waste food as well as time. Maybe someday I'll get a use out of "fancy" recipe books! :)
