The October cookbook offered up by the Crispy Cook was a vintage copy of Caroline Hightower's "The Pennypincher's Book of Fine Food". Martha my trusty scullery hound helped me to randomly select the winner of this prize (along with random.org), commenter #7, Cee. Congratulations Cee!
For this month's cookbook giveaway, I straightened up the ol' cookbook section at Old Saratoga Books, the used and rare bookshop that my husband and I own, and found this cute book: "The ABC of Gourmet Cookery" published in 1956 by the The Peter Pauper Press. This publisher specializes in diminutive gift books and the vintage editions of their titles have become collectible for their whimsical, beautiful and distinctive illustrations. "The ABC of Gourmet Cookery", illustrated by Ruth McCrea in vivid 50s style, contains recipes for each letter of the alphabet. From Arroz con Pollo to Hungarian Tomato Sauerkraut to Zabaglione, it's a visual treat.
To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below by midnight (Eastern Standard Time), November 30, 2009. I will randomly pick a winner from the comments below and ship the book anywhere in the world to the winner.
Good luck to all Gourmets!
