Publisher's Description

Every Third Thursday… Life is Delicious

Grab a plate. Pull up a chair. Good company. Great food. No rules. It’s potluck.

When Nancy Vienneau started a casual potluck celebrating good food and goodwill, she had no idea it would be going strong five years later. The ever-changing group of diverse people who attend have one thing in common: a dedication to good food. As a result, every month, a non-scripted parade of seasonally inspired dishes appears—dishes that draw on ingredients from the participants’ own gardens, their neighbors yards, or the farmers’ market. These dishes celebrate their provenance and their history. Roasted tomato goat cheese tart with Tennessee Bradley tomatoes, Me-me’s chocolate cake inherited from a beloved grandmother’s recipe. Chicken baked with fresh plums from a neighbor’s tree. Acorn squash filled with Southern sorghum and pecans. Pimiento cheese made with local farmstead cheddar. Crowder pea salad flecked with Benton’s country ham.

Like a sourdough starter made from flour, yeast, and water, this simple get-together has grown into a lively, rich event full of interesting folks and food. Between these covers you’ll find glorious dishes, heartfelt stories, plus tips and ideas for starting your own community potluck. Did someone say it’s Thursday?

    I really enjoy reading cookbooks. Normally I base a review of a cookbook on how many recipes I would like to make or make and they taste awesome. This book is based on two ladies who start a Third Thursday potluck cooking group with people from all walks of life. Having participating in a monthly cooking group at random times through my life, I found this endearing. Each month has a different theme and some musings at the beginning of that months recipes.

    This being said, some of the recipes are intimidating for a stay-at-home mom cook of small children. However, there are quite a few recipes I would like to try, especially those that involve using items from home-grown gardens. I love the idea of everything is potluck style and fits with different times of the year, since I find myself often cooking based on moods and feelings of different times of the year.

    Another thing I love with cookbooks is if each recipe includes a picture. Not every recipe includes a picture with it, which doesnt totally matter, just helps please the palette of a cookbook. Since I dont use alcohol, several of the recipes I will probably never make, but overall, the theme and endearment of this cookbook makes it worth taking a look at.

    A flavorful cookbook derived from shared community potluck recipes, The Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook combines recipes with scrumptious pictures, preparation tips, author thoughts as well as ideas for starting your own community potluck. Based on farmer's market items, favorite shared recipes and even a few eclectic ideas of food pairings, this book focuses on seasonal fare available locally within a community. The third Thursday potlucks evolved over time as a way to meet new friends, try new foods and encourage community ties_


    "Not your Grandmother's potluck" sums up this book appropriately as the recipes sound enticing albeit a bit time-consuming (which may be fine when making food to share). I did actually learn a few new cooking/ food terms (Jicama, trussing) which I appreciated. The concept of a community potluck is warm and inviting if one lives in such a locale. I was able to find some very interesting new casual recipes to try from my local farmer's market, especially new seasonal ones which I had never considered. Quite a novel cookbook, one even your Grandma would approve of!!

    I love the entire concept behind this book - food and fellowship, but it goes even beyond that as it is a group dinner/community potluck each month that highlights the foods that are in season at that time. What an awesome way to try new recipes for in season foods and what better foods to eat than those that are fresh and readily available from a local farmer's market or even better from your very own garden! This book is divided into sections by each month and there is a variety of recipes and I cannot wait to try so many of these! Also, the pictures included throughout the book of the foods are beautiful, they make the food so appealing! This is such a fresh, new approach to potlucks and an excellent idea for a cookbook as well!

    The Third Thursday Community Potluck Cookbook Recipes and Stories to Celebrate the Bounty of the Moment by Nancy Vienneau is by far one of the most interesting collections of recipes I have had the pleasure of reading. Not only does this collection give easy to follow recipes, but it shares the journey of a group of people that through a garden have come together. It still amazes me that we can bond over one of the most enjoyable activities such as cooking and that is exactly what this recipe book shows and shares. I believe this book will not only be a great resource for recipes, but it will also be the beginning of new form of gathering, socializing. Nancy has planted the seed in me and now I will nurture it to grow and share it with my friends and family. I was given a review copy from Booklook Bloggers and all opinions are my own.
