September 2009 COTM Voting Thread: VOTE BY AUGUST 17!

yamalam Aug 16, 2009 11:07 AM

Ok, in the interests of time I had been leaning towards only having a vote if locked in a dead heat. However, as we've had a lot of new book discussion, and it seems like the popular opinion is to have a separate nomination and voting process, LET"S VOTE!!!

So far our two top contenders are

1. THE ESSENTIAL CUISINES OF MEXICO, by Dianne Kennedy
(Amazon link http://tinyurl.com/nfa793

)

2. Combo Southern Month featuring:

BON APPETIT Y'ALL:RECIPES AND STORIES FROM THREE GENERATIONS OF SOUTHERN COOKING, by Virginia Wells
(Amazon link http://tinyurl.com/mj22xm
)&
SCREEN DOORS AND SWEET TEA:RECIPES AND TALES FROM A SOUTHERN COOK, by Martha Hall Foose
(Amazon link http://tinyurl.com/m4qzja

)

Place your votes here, by midnight Monday July 17th (PST). Please remember to vote in ALL CAPS, so I can scan through and post the winner Monday night. Again, your vote must be in ALL CAPS to be counted.

Thanks for participating, and I can't wait to see what this month brings!

                COMBO SOUTHERN MONTH (but will happily play along with Mexico).

                For those of you on the fence I can say that, as someone with very little interest in Southern cooking I have become smitten with Bon Appetit Y'all. I've had great luck with *most* of the recipes, and there are still plenty I want to try.
