DESSERT CotM RUNOFF Voting

oakjoan Apr 28, 2008 01:49 PM

Here’s the runoff list with number of votes received. Plz vote for ONE only. I’ll leave this up until Wednesday evening and the 1st DESSERT COOKBOOK OF THE MONTH extravaganza will start on Thursday, May 1st.

IMPORTANT NOTE RE AVAILABILITY (one post to this thread stated that Medrich’s chocolate low fat book is out of print, however, Amazon has several copies from other sellers starting at $7.50 and I’ve searched about 15 libraries all over the country, including Fairbanks, Dallas, L.A., Brooklyn, Indianapolis, SF Bay Area, Hartford, Denver, Atlanta, Seattle, Cleveland, and ALL have this book)

Again, keep comments to a minimum. Comments welcome on the original discussion thread here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/507757

PURE DESSERT AND CHOCOLATE AND THE ART OF LOW FAT DESSERTS - 7

PURE DESSERT - 3

PURE DESSERT and LAST COURSE - 1 I kept this in because of the vote for P.D

DOLCE ITALIANO - 3

GREAT COFFEE CAKES, STICKY BUNS, MUFFINS, AND MORE - 2

THE SWEET SPOT - 2

BREAKFAST LUNCH TEA (Rose Bakery), DESSERT CIRCUS, SWEET LIFE (Desserts from Chanterelle), TARTINE all got 1 vote apiece and are ineligible for the run-off.

Appy voting!

    ATTENTION ALL:

    I am going to post the winner tonight instead of tomorrow since I remembered that we are going away for the rest of the week tomorrow.

    In any case, Pure Dessert along with Chocolate and Art of Low Fat Desserts seem to be ahead by so many votes that it's no contest.

    There are a couple of votes for "The Last Course" and Pure Dessert, and I was going to add The Last Course and make it a 3 cookbook winner until I looked on Amazon and found that Fleming's book is only available on Amazon from private sellers and the first price was over $100!!! It also does not appear to be in ANY of the SFBayarea local libraries.

    So vote away until this evening, say 9:00 p.m. PDT, and I'll post the winners and you all can get a head start on me as I won't be back until next Monday night.

                    I vote for PURE DESSERTS. I don't object to doing it with any of the other books specified as combo options especially The Last Course. But see my recent comment in the prior voting thread about her Low Fat Dessert book.

                      Medrick combo, please: PURE DESSERT + CHOCOLATE AND THE ART OF LOW FAT DESSERTS

                          Unfortunately not in mine. But if there are online recipes, that would help a lot. Ooops, sorry - this is one of the comments that I just read was supposed to be kept to a minimum. Are a lot of the recipes online?
