    I vote for HOW TO EAT.

    1. greedygirl Dec 16, 2011 03:09 AM

      HOW TO EAT please.

      1. LulusMom Dec 16, 2011 03:57 AM

        I'm going to go ahead and vote too. HOW TO EAT.

          What a fantastic list of finalists! I'm abstaining from voting because my recent track record of participating has been poor, but I really do hope to cook along in January if either Pepin or Lawson wins. I think Washoku would be beyond me at the moment, though I'd love to read what you all cook from it should it win.

              I'd be happy to cook from any of these, although I don't have the Pepin yet. It's on my Christmas list. As much as I'd like to do Japanese, I don't think there is enough support for it right now. So I'll throw in my vote for HOW TO EAT.

                      ESSENTIAL PEPIN

                      I'd also be happy with How to Eat, but I already own the Pepin so I'm voting for that one.

                                  I will vote for HOW TO EAT since more people have that book.

                                        I was only remarking from the number of people who said the had it and so many said the did no could not get Pepin. I have both, so I don't mind which wins.

                                          PEPIN. Not a nigella fan. Washoku a little too much for January post-holiday budget..

                                            PEPIN. I don't have any of the books, but the library has Pepin, no others.

                                              Looks like it is a good thing we went ahead with the voting thread. Seems like a split so far.

                                              My vote goes to HOW TO EAT by Nigella Lawson

                                                ESSENTIAL PEPIN, but still hoping for a Japanese month one of these days.

                                                    I'll vote for the one I own: ESSENTIAL PEPIN.

                                                          I don't own any of the books, but I would definitely buy HOW TO EAT if that wins. So that will be my vote.

                                                          I would love to do Japanese some time (and Korean too!) but I'm not sure I would be up for it in January.
