The votes are in. Here are the provisional results. Several posts mentioned, e.g., “Jamie Oliver” without clarifying that this was a vote. I decided that those were NOT votes (see below).
DUNLOP 11 votes (6 voters just wrote “Dunlop” stating they didn’t care which book or without specifying which book). The votes for a specific book are: Land of Plenty - 2 votes, Revolutionary Chinese - 3 votes
BATALI - 8 votes. I had mentioned “Molto Italiano” and several responses mentioned this book. Others just said “Batali” or “Molto Mario”. Since I’d mentioned Molto Italiano, I’m assuming the “Batali” votes were for that book.
SUPERNATURAL COOKING - 7 votes
FLEXITARIAN - 7 votes
JAMIE OLIVER - 5 votes (If someone wants to check this out, please do. Oliver is mentioned in several responses without any reference to voting that I could see).
No other book/author got more than 4 votes.
I’m holding off on posting a run-off message until I get any info on the questions I set forth above.
