February Book Giveaway

Last month I offered a copy of "Practical Rice Dishes" to one of the loyal readers of the Crispy Cook and the winner is Vivian. Congratulations Vivian! I will be contacting you to get your shipping address as soon as I finish this blog post.

For the February book giveaway, I have an entertaining little volume to tempt you with: "Gluttony: Ample Tales of Epicurean Excess", edited by John Miller (San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 1996). This compilation includes selections by John Kennedy Toole, M.F.K. Fisher, Fran Lebowitz, Woody Allen, Russell Baker, and William Shakespeare, among other bards, all describing the various aspects of overindulgence. If you are interested in winning this collection of cautionary tales for foodie readers, just leave a comment below by February 28, 2009, midnight (Eastern Standard Time) and I'll randomly select a winner. Good luck to all!
