Last month I went through the shelves of our used bookstore, Old Saratoga Books, and selected "Gluttony: Ample Tales of Epicurean Excess" edited by John Miller and Benedict Cosgrove. The winner of this book giveaway is Dessert Obsessed, who has an appropriately sugary blog about all things desserty, but who looks like she only eats lettuce leaves. Maybe she's lucky enough to have one of those bird metabolisms and can eat whatever chocolate and cream confections she wants. Congratulations D.O.! I will be contacting you right away to get your mailing address so I can send you the book.
For the March cookbook giveaway, I prowled around and selected a vintage hardcover cookbook by Robert Carrier "Great Casseroles" (NY: Hamlyn, 1978). It's got some intriguing recipes for such delights as Pot-Roasted Veal with Anchovies, Summer Saffron Chicken, Duck with Turnips, and Curried Plaice with Rice. Lots of illustrations and a few color photos.
To win a copy of this cookbook, just leave a comment after this post by midnight (Eastern Standard Time) by March 31, 2009 and I will randomly select a winner after that deadline. Good luck to all!
