Lightning Round: The Frankies Spuntino Kitchen Companion & Cooking Manual (Cookbook) Giveaway

frankies spuntino cookbook, meatballs
Duplicates.

As you know, it’s what happens when you’re on TasteSpotting and accidentally hit “submit” twice.

It’s also what happens when two people move in together.

You end up with duplicates. Two couches, two dining tables, two sets of silverware…

Two copies of the Frankies Spuntino Cookbook!

We went to a special night at a local LA restaurant when Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli, aka “The Frankies,” were guest chefs. The Italian-American dinner – everything from their signature Meatballs (mix pictured above) to the Cavatelli Pasta with Sage and Brown Butter – was fantastic, but the best part of the night was getting to walk away with a copy of the Frankies’ cookbook that had the recipes for everything they cooked and served. Since we were both there, we both got a copy.

We don’t really need two copies of the same book, so we’re giving away the second copy to you!

How to Enter this Lightning Giveaway

This is a quick and easy giveaway. There is one step:

Leave a comment on this post with your favorite Italian-American dish. (Make sure to enter your email address so we can contact you if you’re chosen!)

Lasagna? Pepperoni pizza? Meatballs? It doesn’t actually matter what you say since we’re going to pick the “winner” randomly, it only matters that you do comment.

And just to get things started, we’ll go first. We have a thing for Eggplant Parmesan.

Good luck! You have until around this time tomorrow.

(And we still need to figure out what to do with two dining tables…)

I do love a white pie with potatoes, rosemary & cheese … oh, and a side of homemade alfredo sauce, for dipping. :)

Favorite Italian? That’s a tough decision…cannoli, rich pasta dishes topped with cheese, caprese salad, sausage & peppers, and the list could go on. But my favorite Italian-American dish? I’d probably have to say Chicken Francese with capers. Simple, tangy, & delish!

Elyssa November 10, 2010 at 3:10 pm
