Given the choice between classic French or reimagined Greek -- Buvette or Smashing Plates -- which would you choose? How would you choose? James Beard Award-winning writer John T. Edge steps up to the challenge. (If you haven't been keeping up, here's how each book advanced through their last rounds here and here, respectively.) 

Read John's verdict here, and let us know what you think in the comments section -- one lucky commenter will have a chance to win a copy of the prevailing book.
