Well, in comparison with the November election, we certainly have a low turnout. I expected as much due to overbaking during the holidays.
In any case, we'll go forward with the final voting because it's easy for me to do even if there are only a few folks who are responding.
I'm putting the following books up for a vote (I took out the Rose Bakery cookbook because technically it DOES have savory recipes as well. I'll propose it again for the main COTM thread). I left out the Silver Palette for the same reason. I also figured that since 2 books by each author were suggested, we could do a combo. It's slim pickin's this month but these 2 authors were the only ones to get more than one vote. Here are the choices:
Art and Soul of Baking and The Modern Baker by Nick Maglieri
Secrets of Baking and Desserts by the Yard by Sherrie Yard
I'll tally the votes this Saturday and we'll start right away because February is already upon us!
