The voting was extremely close, but at the end, the momentum shifted toward Nigel Slater, just enough that I wasn't called upon to break a tie. Whew! What a relief! Both authors have a lot of fans amongst the COTM crowd, and I have a feeling Chef, Interrupted will be back to compete for COTM another month.To view the voting thread and discussion, follow this link:
For the merry merry month of May, we will be cooking from EAT: THE LITTLE BOOK OF FAST FOOD, by Nigel Slater.
From our friends at Amazon:
"In this little book of fast food, Britain's foremost food writer presents a wholly enjoyable ode to those times when you just want to eat. Pairing more than 600 ideas for deliciously simple meals with the same elegant prose and delightful photography that captivated fans of Tender, Ripe, and Notes from the Larder, Eat is bursting with recipes that are easy to get to the table, oftentimes in under an hour: a humble fig and ricotta toast; sizzling chorizo with shallots and potatoes; a one-pan Sunday lunch. From quick meals to comfort food, Nigel Slater has crafted a charming, inspired collection of simple food—done well."
