After thinking about it for some time, I’ve finally decided:
Every Thursday this month, I’ll be giving away a cookbook.
Some are brand new, some are maybe not-so-new — but I think they’re all great.
Here’s the process:
- If you haven’t already, go and become a fan of gezellig-girl.com on Facebook — this is easiest way for me to pick a winner.
- Every Thursday at noon (EST), I’ll pick a Facebook fan (using a random number generator) as the winner and post his/her name on the Facebook page and here on the blog. (If the winner doesn’t come forward within a couple days, I’ll pick another.)
- Books will be sent by Media Mail on Friday.
This week’s book is a hardcover copy of Jonathan Waxman’s A Great American Cook: Recipes from the Home Kitchen of One of Our Most Influential Chefs.
From the jacket cover: Widely recognized as one of the fathers of New American cuisine, Jonathan Waxman became a mentor to hundreds of chefs on both coasts. A Great American Cook presents Waxman’s finest dishes the way he makes them at home. They include the Red Pepper Pancakes with Corn and Caviar that he created when he ran the kitchen of Alice Waters’s Chez Panisse, his famous Grilled Chicken with JW Fries, and a homey Pizza with Bacon, Scallions, Parmesan, and Tomato that’s a family weeknight favorite. His combinations are simple but unexpected, exuberant but down to earth.
Guys, I am super excited about giving away this stuff! I’ve been thinking about it for ages and I’m thrilled to jump in and start this up. If all goes well, I hope this will become a monthly feature — so, let’s get to it! Tell a friend! Tell an enemy! Whatever!
