The May book giveaway at the Crispy Cook involved a copy of "Something to Savour: Food for Thought from Women Writers", edited by Laurie Critchley and Helen Windroth (London: The Women's Press, 1996). The winner of this lovely little collection of food memories is Esme, who has a food blog of her own, Chocolate & Croissants, which features her Francophilic food adventures. Congratulations Esme!
For the June book giveaway, I have an advance reading copy of:
"The Amateur Gourmet", by Adam D. Roberts (NY: Bantam Dell, 2007). It is a softcover from the shelves of our used bookstore, Old Saratoga Books, and is in Very Good condition (there's a light crease down spine from my own reading). This book is an interesting collection of culinary anecdotes and recipes by the former law student turned professional foodie and blogger. Be sure to check out Robert's blog, The Amateur Gourmet, to feast on his humorous writing and celebration of foods. While you are there you can peruse his post about his edible ode to Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction at the Super Bowl. You'll never look at a cupcake so innocently again after witnessing one sporting a nipple shield.
As always, to enter the book giveaway this month, just leave a comment below by midnight, June 30th and a winner will be randomly picked from the entries. Good luck to everyone!
