January Book Giveaway

For the December Cookbook Giveaway, I offered a copy of "Eating on the Run: The Nutritious Eating-From Airline Meals to Microwave Zapping", by Evelyn Tribole. The lucky winner is Ben, of the beautiful and tasty looking food blog, What's Cooking. You'll find lots of food porn photos, tasty recipes for Mexican home cooking and for lots of baked goods. Ben was recently a featured 24,24,24 foodie on Foodbuzz with his magnificent, many-coursed Mexican meal for a group of his luckiest friends. Congratulations Ben!

For the January cookbook giveaway, the Crispy Cook prowled around the shelves over at our used bookstore, Old Saratoga Books, and came up with "Practical Rice Dishes", Bath, UK: Parragon, 2002). This little cookbook celebrates the world's second most popular grain and a staple of so many cuisines around the world. This cookbook contains recipes for Lebanese Almond Rice, Ginger Rice with Duck, Goan Fish Curry and Moroccan Mixed Rice Salad, among many others.

As always, entries are made by leaving a comment after this post. Do so by midnight, January 31st, 2009 to be eligible to have this book sent to you courtesy of the Crispy Cook. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Rachel,

I'm not commenting to enter the giveaway. I just sold two grocery bags full of old cookbooks to Half Price Books. It felt good to purge my shelves of mostly pasta and dessert cookbooks!

I'll just wait for you to test the recipes and tell me which ones I should try. Ha ha! I think I've become co-dependent on my gf blogger pals! I'm glad you're all good sports and good cooks!
