We're big fans of the Canal House Cookbooks here in The Kitchn. Well, at least I am. I love the idea of subscribing to a series of seasonal cookbooks that arrive in the mail, kind of like a magazine but with no ads and a sturdier binding. They've been promising an enhanced website for a while now and it's finally here. Read on for my favorite new features.The new website has the same look and feel as the old one, but with many new features. There are separate sections for cooking, gardening, and booze, and a special Canal House Loving section that includes lists of places to visit in our favorite cities.
I especially like the playlist to cook by from Coleman Andrews and the Canal House Drinking section which has posts on favorite drinking glasses, a treatise on bagged ice, and a recipe for Tequila and Tonic. Also interesting are a list of treasured old cookbooks, many which are new to me, and a lovely section on the Canal House Ladies' gardens, each with its own story.
There's also a blog and an opportunity to peek into the latest release of Canal House Cooking.
The new website just went up on Friday and is still establishing its presence, but should be a fun place to visit as it unfolds over time.
