Food52 Cookbook {giveaway}

Food 52 cookbook
We love Food52, a really cool idea of getting together a community of cooks and sharing recipes, ideas, stories, and tips. They totally share their recipes with us here on TasteSpotting, too!

Last week, the James Beard Foundation awarded Food52 the Publication of the Year for Journalism (list of winners is on a link on their page), so we thought it would be a nice way to say “Congratulations!” to the Food52 community, Amanda, and Merrill (we’ve never met them in person, but hey this is the internet, we can call them by their first names, right?) by giving away a copy of the cookbook of recipes from their community!

So here it is.

(And yes, those are little yellow post-its in the book – you didn’t think we’d give this away without cooking a few recipes from it first, did you?!)

How to Enter this Giveaway

  1. Check out Food52’s recipes on TasteSpotting, then tell us which one is your favorite in comments section of this post! It doesn’t matter what you say, as this is a random drawing, but it does matter that you do comment with something.
  2. Make sure to enter your email address in the box provided so we can contact you
  3. Share this giveaway post with your friends on facebook and twitter! (not required, but we’d love the help!)

You have until Friday May 11, 2012 at 5 PM PST to comment. Everyone is welcome to comment to enter, but we can only ship this stuff in the U.S. (So if you’re outside the US and win, you just need to provide us with a US mailing address to send!)

Good luck!

Remember that we’re still giving away Patricia Wells’s cookbook, Salad as a Meal, so make sure to enter! And stay tuned for more giveaways throughout the next few weeks! Yes, we are giving away cookbooks as a way to “prime” you all for some bigger things coming up. Do not worry, you are always eligible to enter everything, and win more than once, too.
