June 2007 Cookbook Giveway
This month I'm giving away Mark Bittman's How To Cook Everything. I just got my hands on a copy myself and so far I've only made Strawberries with Swedish Cream and Lemon Rice but this book has been around long enough and won enough awards for me to give it away confidentally even without personally trying many of the recipes. I have seen a food blogger or two swear by this cookbook.
This isn't an exciting cookbook visually but it's a good one to have in your collection for the basics and for small twists on the basics. I don't know if you can actually learn how to cook everything from this book but it does a good job of covering a large variety of foods. Mark Bittman is know for his minimalist style but that doesn't mean that all of the recipes are plain and unexciting. I've bookmarked quite a few of them already.
This is the 10th cookbook giveaway. There wasn't a huge amount of interest last month (only 10-11 people) but that just makes the odds better for those who do sign up.
This is how it works - just leave a comment on this post. I just need an e-mail address (if your profile links to an e-mail, you don't need to type it out, I'll find it). Entry is open until the last day of the month. First chance I get after that, I'll draw the winner. Then I'll contact the winner for a mailing address and then I'll mail the book! I'll pay the shipping, of course (I'll probably send it media rate - postal rates have gone up again). I'll open this to everyone - in or out of the U.S.
I've received some some weird hits, resulting from queries on common e-mail extensions, hitting the cookbook giveaway posts. Probably someone trolling for e-mail addresses so feel free to modify your e-mail address when you leave it, using 'at' instead of @ and 'dot com' instead of '.com', etc.
The winner is Sugar__Mama!
