February 2007 Cookbook of the Month: Cast Your Vote Here

Thanks to all the hounds who offered suggestions. The general hound opinion favors an Asian cookbook to coincide with the Lunar New Year during this short month. I've managed to whittle down your many good suggestions to three.

Please cast your vote for ONE of the following:
-- HOT SOUR SALTY SWEET by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid
-- THE KEY TO CHINESE COOKING by Irene Kuo
-- LAND OF PLENTY by Fuchsia Dunlop

I'm going to leave this thread open for votes until midnight February 14, 2007. I'm trying to leave a little extra time for folks to explore these books-- they are very different, so take a look at them at a bookstore or library if you can before casting your vote.

Thanks for participating!

  1. I assume you meant to say January 14, not February 14, correct?

    1. I vote for HOT SOUR SALTY SWEET by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid - and plan to cook along this time - haven't been able to for awhile!

      1. All three are great.

        Not a suggestion, but just a point of information, the great Fushia Dunlop has her new book out: Revolutionary Chinese about the food of Hunan. Jessica's Biscvuit already has it.

        1. re: SilverlakeGirl

          I just got it, about time someone did a really interesting book about the Hunan Province. I am intrigued but haven't had a chance to use it yet.

        2. Hhmmm... the only one I could find in all 13 of my libraries was "Hot Sour Salty Sweet", so these could be difficult for everyone to find.

          1. Any of the above. I've used The Key so much it is falling apart and it is my 2nd. copy. Cheap publisher just glued it together. It is a great book but all 3 are terrific.
