Monthly Cookbook Giveaway
I thought it would be fun to have a monthly cookbook giveaway, being that Dan and I own a used and rare bookstore where the books seem to multiply on the shelves each night. The plan is to offer a free book shipped free of charge to one of our Wheat-Free, Meat-Free readers anywhere in the world. I plan to pick a new cookbook each month and will randomly draw names out of a hat, or maybe a cooking pot, to determine the winner. All you need to do is leave a comment after this post by May 31st. I will wait until the next day to announce the winner.
The cookbooks will not be gluten-free (those get siphoned off into our home library) or necessarily vegetarian, and will all be in Good used condition. For the first cookbook giveaway I am offering one of my old standbys, Tassajara Cooking, by Edward Espe Brown (Boston: Shambhala, 1985). This is a classic vegetarian cookbook, originally published in 1973 by the San Francisco Zen Center and has a wealth of tasty, simple and beautiful vegetable recipes. I would never have thought that dipping lightly steamed asparagus in guacamole would be such a handsome and delicious duo, but thanks to Brown's great book, this is a favorite combo when the asparagus patch gets rockin' and rollin'--maybe next week?
Good luck to all.......
Also, if you want to win a free copy of Sheridan Hay's novel "The Secret of Lost Things", you can boogie over to my bookstore blog, The Book Trout and leave a comment on the appropriate post.
