**March COTM** vote: Ottolenghi or Fish?

Hounds! It's that exciting time when we get to vote for one of the top two contenders from this month's suggestions for COTM. Our choices for March 2009 Cookbook of the Month (as nominated in the suggestions thread) are:

THE OTTOLENGHI COOKBOOK by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi
FISH WITHOUT A DOUBT by Rick Moonen and Roy Finamore

Please see the suggestions thread for in-depth discussion of each book, as fellow hounds have contributed copious and illuminating comments on content, style, and accessibility of each book, including nods to specific recipes:

Here are the links to Amazon pages on each book; I often turn to the customer reviews as I gauge a book that is new to me:



VOTING PROCEDURE -- Please cast your vote with TITLE OF THE BOOK in capital letters so that I can tabulate with ease. Voting will be open until the end of the day on Thursday February 19. Feel free to add commentary if you wish! Looking forward to seeing the results, and even more to cracking one of these open to start cooking!

        To Candy, alwayscooking and themags - we just want to confirm that those were indeed "votes" for the voting thread and not just suggestions. If we got this wrong, please post here to correct.
