Goodreads' First Round of Best Cookbooks 2019 Nominations Includes The Little Women Cookbook

Well, here’s some news. Goodreads announced its first round of Goodreads Choice Awards 2019, and I’m thrilled to say that The Little Women Cookbook: Tempting Recipes from the March Sisters and Their Friends and Family made it into the first round of nominees in the category of Best Food & Cookbooks.

The Little Women Cookbook made the cut. And I’d be thrilled if you’d consider casting your vote for it.

Yes. I’m pretty surprised, too. There are some kingpins on the list, including Ruth Reichl, Rachel Ray, Gwyneth Paltrow, Maida Haetter, and others. But, I suppose it shows just how much people love the enduring story of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy, and are moved (as I am!) by the way food weaves its way in and out of the novel as part of affection given, lessons learned, and love made visible.

Cooks (and those who sit at their tables) seem to be responding to the book’s “comfort food with a literary twist.” Of course, the fact that there’s a new movie version coming out in December, with Saoirse Ronan, Timothee Chalamet, and Emma Watson, isn’t hurting things, either.

And even those who don’t necessarily adore the novel still appreciate — as one reviewer on Amazon put it — the book’s “comfort food with a literary twist.”

So … I hate to even ask (this does not come naturally to me), but I would be thrilled and honored if you would vote for my cookbook in the Goodreads Choice Awards. It’s incredibly easy — you simply go to this page and cast your vote (while you’re at it, it would be great if you rate the cookbook, too; it takes just one click). Oh, and if you’re not already signed up on Goodreads, it only takes a few seconds to do so (no rigamarole!).

Thank you so much for your consideration, and as always, thanks for reading Chez Bonne Femme.


P.S.: Love podcasts? Here are some links to some beautifully produced podcasts about the role of food in Little Women, and how I chose and adapted the recipes for my book.

Public Radio Podcast with the amazing Charity Nebbe, host. She teased out some great insights into how this book was put together and the choices I made about what to include and how to update the recipes (while keeping them true to the spirit of the Louisa May Alcott’s masterpiece).

• Another lovely podcast from the Des Moines Public Library. A good 30-minute listen, with host Aaron Gernes getting to the heart of what the cookbook is all about. (He described it as “a love letter to Little Women.” So apt!)
