November 2011 Cookbook of the Month Voting

The nomination thread has closed and we have narrowed it down to the books listed below. Now is the time to decide which book will be chosen for November. Please remember to VOTE IN ALL CAPS. Voting will close at midnight this coming Wednesday (October 19th) and I will post the winner Thursday morning.

There didn’t seem to be a lot of voting, or a lot of agreement, but four books got at least 3 votes. Please choose from the books listed below, and remember to post your vote in ALL CAPS.

THE GOURMET COOKBOOK (the first, yellow one, known forever to some of us, thanks to The Dairy Queen, as Gourmet Yesterday), by Ruth Reichl, et al.

The 150 BEST AMERICAN RECIPES, by Molly Stevens and Fran McCullogh

THE FOOD OF SPAIN, by Claudia Roden

JAMES BEARD’S AMERICAN COOKERY, by James Beard.

Here is a link to the nomination thread if you’d like to read more about how we narrowed it down to these books: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/811933

  1. Well, this is a first. I was so busy with my day to day life I completely forgot about the nomination thread! Missed out on nominating, but still in time to vote. I hear a lot of us would rather hold off on The 150 BEST AMERICAN RECIPES until January but I am up for it now.The others do not appeal to me at the moment.

      1. I have all these books and would be happy to cook from any of them so November is shaping up to be a great month! That said, my vote goes to:

        THE 150 BEST AMERICAN RECIPES

        1. I'll vote for THE GOURMET COOKBOOK, simply for the scope of dishes, many suitable for holiday cooking (but I'll be just as happy w/150 BA recipes; love that series).
