In August, I raved about Canal House Cooking, Vol. 1, which became my go-to summer resource.  Good call, as it turns out. Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer’s first effort has been named a finalist in The Tournament of Cookbooks. Their competition? Big time chefs like Thomas Keller and John Besh. Now I really can’t wait for Vol. 2. (If you don’t have Vol. 1, this is all meaningless, right? Solution: Get Vol. 1.)
