This review is part of our community-driven book tournament, The Big Community Book-Off. With your help, we’re finding the best books across categories (from bread to pasta, Instant Pots to cooking fundamentals, and cake to cookies, to name a few), and putting them through a series of rigorous reviews—considered, tested, and written by none other than you.
We’d originally introduced you to three community members, Grace, Rohita, and Jared. Unfortunately, during the review process, Grace tested positive for COVID-19 and lost her sense of smell and taste, making judging recipes a nearly impossible task. While she wasn’t able to fully participate in the final review, Grace still shared some of her thoughts on the cookbooks. We wish her a speedy recovery!
