June Cookbook Winner and July Cookbook Contest


Last month the Crispy Cook searched the shelves at Old Saratoga Books and came up with Rose Elliot's "Vegetarian Dishes From Around the World" for the monthly cookbook giveaway. Each month I forage through the cookbook shelves at our used and rare bookstore, and pick a cookbook to give away to one of my loyal readers. All you need to do is leave a comment at the end of this post to enter. And the winner of this month's free cookbook is Melbourne, Australia resident Johanna, who has an entertaining vegetarian blog, The Green Gourmet Giraffe. Congratulations Johanna! I will be notifying you shortly.

For the next round of cookbookery fun, I am offering a copy of Judith Olney's "Summer Food" (NY: Atheneum, 1978). At least here in the Northern Hemisphere, things should be quite warm and sultry, so this cookbook should offer the lucky winner some seasonal fare that will keep the kitchens cool and the garden bounty utilized. Just leave a comment after this post by July 31st, at midnight, to enter the giveaway. Good luck!

I would love to win this book! I am really trying to embrace eating as much local food as possible. I go to a local farmstand once a week and am really enjoying the summer produce! Thanks for the opportunity and continued success with your great blog!

I've been lurking around your Old Saratoga Books site – what a nice combination of websites! Cooking or booking? Or gardening? I love the shot of the red poppies. Very nice!

I've enjoyed my visit!
Take care,
Melissa

I'm growing some vegetables that soon will be ripening, as well as a lot of herbs, and inspiration for new recipes is always welcome, so it would definately be nice to get a book about summer food!
