RUNOFF VOTING - June Cookbook of Month
- oakjoan May 21, 2008 04:09 PM
So I’m going to put all of the books that got more than one vote into this month’s runoff, since there were only 3 books that got five or more votes. Most got 1 or 2.
Here goes (in vote-getting and then alpha order):
FOODS AND WINES OF SPAIN/TAPAS, P. Casas 6 votes
SWEET MYRTLE and BITTER HONEY, 6 votes
RIVER CAFÉ EASY BOOKS, Rogers & Grey, 4 votes
BATALI (Babbo, Molto Italiano), M. Batali, 3 votes
BEYOND THE GREAT WALL, Alford & Duguid, 2 votes
INDIAN BOOK (Sahni and Jaffrey mentioned), 2 votes
WHITE HOUSE CHEF (Schaub), 2 votes
(Books getting one vote were Washoku, Passione, Crescent City Cooking, Spledid Table, and Italian Cooking in the Grand Tradition - these are NOT in the runoff and are set forth for informational purposes only)
OKAY, WE’LL VOTE UNTIL SATURDAY, MAY 24TH unless anybody feels that’s just not enough time. It’s gotten so late this month (Mea culpa! Mia maxima culpa) since I was out of town twice.
Anything wrong? Missing? Let me know and I’ll correct/insert it.
KARYKAT: I went back to the original post to check out the Crescent City votes. I didn't count it because I didn't see it. The name of the book does not appear in the post, just the author's name. It's difficult enough for me to sift through all the other comments to find the book each person wants. Although caps are not required, mention of the book must be.
I count the votes by using the search feature to find each cookbook name, not the author.
Don't mean to be snippy, but I want to get my point about mentioning the COOKBOOK NAME in the voting posts across.
I will allow the 2 votes this time only. So folks can vote for CRESCENT CITY COOKING.
FOODS AND WINES OF SPAIN/TAPAS
I've been wanting to host a tapas party for ages, so this would be perfect for me! Foods & Wines of Spain sounds great too.
