June Cookbook of the Month Voting Thread

Voting has closed and it was yet another busy month of nominations with 8 separate books nominated, with 26 votes spread amongst them. In the end we had a three way tie again, with The New Persian Kitchen, My Paris Kitchen, and Hakka all generating equal interest.

I haven't nominated this go around and given the three way tie I am not super keen to interject as I don't want to eliminate any of the three books that the other participants are enamoured with. Hakka and The New Persian Kitchen have both been nominated in the past, but if you would like to familiarize yourself with them please visit the following sites:

With regards to My Paris Kitchen by David Leibovitz our friends at Amazon advise us that "In My Paris Kitchen, David remasters the classics, introduces lesser-known fare, and presents 100 sweet and savory recipes that reflect the way modern Parisians eat today. You’ll find Soupe à l’oignon, Cassoulet, Coq au vin, and Croque-monsieur, as well as Smoky barbecue-style pork, Lamb shank tagine, Dukkah-roasted cauliflower, Salt cod fritters with tartar sauce, and Wheat berry salad with radicchio, root vegetables, and pomegranate. And of course, there’s dessert: Warm chocolate cake with salted butter caramel sauce, Duck fat cookies, Bay leaf poundcake with orange glaze, French cheesecake...and the list goes on. David also shares stories told with his trademark wit and humor, and lush photography taken on location around Paris and in David’s kitchen reveals the quirks, trials, beauty, and joys of life in the culinary capital of the world."

There we have it all.
