As many of you know we are going to be publishing the first ever SoSH Cookbook to benefit Mass ALS this year. It will feature over 200 recipes to fit almost any occasion. We need to get an idea of how many of these to have printed so we don't have them lying around collecting dust. The goal is to get as much money to ALS as possible. We'd really appreciate it if you'd let us know if you plan on buying a cookbook.

It will also include essays by some of the members and will be SoSHcentric.

We're thinking in the $19.95 range. Maalox's essay on crockpots alone is worth that, not to mention Yammer's on wine, Skrub's on bacon, and Abs' on BBQ!

This won't be your typical church lady book.

We'd be delighted to. Good thing you acted so soon. Each additional book ordered will be sent to you at the one time cost of only $19.95 each. Quite the bargain, if I do say so myself.

So it's $39.90 for two? I'm no economist, but that looks like money in my pocket to me. I like money in my pocket.

I'm no economist either, but it's even more money in your pocket if you order more. I recommend ordering 4 at least. Wouldn't you feel really good walking around with an additional $79.80 in your pocket? Why you'd be rich!

That's right abs. That 79.80 is slowing you down. Hurting your production. And that's hurting your bottom line.

Does it come with a free slapchopper and will it be typed by Germans? I've been told they make great things and I believe everything I see on TV at 3am. I'll definitely buy one asap, because I know you can't do this all day. I'll buy two if abs' bbq recipe speaks of the virtue of cooking over propane gas.

You know, you really cannot plan too far ahead for tasteful and appropriate Christmas gifts such as these. (What mother doesn't want a recipe for Goat Neck Stew?)
The fact that it has Browndog's chili recipe, thus obviating the need to dig through the crockpot thread to find it, is worth the price of admission right there! I'm in for five.

I'm assuming at some point, those of us who said we'd like one will get instructions on how to get it -- if life prevents us from attending el softball bashey?

Speaking of Christmas gifts, $19.95 for a SoSH cookbook is way better than The Addict's Guide to beating Addiction found here

This really shouldn't be a yes or no poll -- it should be asking how many.

We've officially got 226 recipes in the fold, generously contributed by a shitload of SoSH posters. Some are simple and easy ways to make yourself look like a gourmet. Others are complex treks into the culinary netherworld.

If Maalox's Fuckin' Goat Neck Stew isn't far enough off the charts, we've got stuff covering the gamut from Sprowl's Scallop Ceviche to DannyHeep's Baked Burger-Stuffed Pumpkin.

That's right. Goats. Scallops. Pumpkins. In the same frickin' cookbook. That has to be a first.

We have crockpot recipes coming out of our butt cracks. Desserts that'll bring everyone in the "I don't want to be a fatass anymore!" thread to their knees in tears. Appetizers and dips that'll crank your parties up another notch. Enough pork, beef and game dishes to send that S-i-n-a dude running for cover.

Breakfast creations, seafood, vegetarian fare, international recipes, side dishes, and a crap-ton of great beverage and booze concoctions. And of course, chicken (you'll have to buy the book to see if there's any vodka). There's even a chapter dedicated to nothing but sauces and dressings.

Oh ... did I mention the bacon yet? Well, we've got an entire section celebrating the grand poobah of salted, cured meats.

Hell, we even convinced Gehrig38 to emerge from his basement and break away from the latest World of Warcraft conquest long enough to share some of the recipes that brought a little extra bulge to that dome belly (sorry, Curt...)

The book also includes some informative and entertaining write-ups on culinary know-how. Looking to bring your backyard "cookouts" to a whole new level but not sure where to start? Absintheofmalaise breaks it all down for you. Want to broaden your horizons into the world of wines and pairing them up with various foods, but are in a quandary over how to approach it? Ride shotgun with Rick Burlesons Yam Bag as he walks you through from start to finish.

Most importantly, Marlene Hoyt, John's widow, has provided us with some of her late husband's favorite recipes for chowing down. The man lived in the moment and did it to the fullest, and good food shared with family and friends was a central part of his life -- as it is for all of us. It's a reminder of why we've undertaken this project.

So here's hoping everyone will step up to the plate for this. Not only will a modest donation of less than 20 bucks get you this cookbook, but you'll be helping to knock ALS on its keister.

Hard to give an exact quote on overseas shipments until we get precise package weights (the books haven't been printed yet, so we don't know how heavy they are). But if you can get us a postal code that's a start.

Hell, if you want to conserve costs we could just package it with the one shipping to the guy just a couple of posts below yours. And if you bring him and his wife a decent bottle of wine when you pick it up, maybe he'll have a platter of Mussels Provencale ready for you to chow down.

Yes, that's a dish he contributed, and it's in the book.

I saw a preview of abs' essay, "Cooking with Gas," and I must concur that it alone is well worth the price of admission.

Just let us know where and when to send the check - great idea.

That's a great idea...as one who has also begun to delve into the world of fine scotch, that would be a welcome addition. Perhaps next year if it doesn't make this edition?

I would be glad to contribute a cigar primer for next year's edition if there is enough interest to warrant such a topic. Food for thought.

Regardless, I'm in for at least one, perhaps two copies.
