World Food Giveaway (with poll)

Because the leaves are changing, and because I’m feeling fiesty, let’s do a book giveaway. And not just any book give away. This is a “must have” book for anyone who loves Latino/Caribbean food. (Mmmm, doesn’t everyone?) The book: Latin & Caribbean Grocery Stores Demystified by Linda Bladholm There’s nothing I enjoy more than plunging into one of Miami’s many latin markets with Linda at my side–and now you can, too, wherever you live. Her carefully researched, clearly presented information will let you shop with confidence. And her charming and enthusiastic approach will make it fun. This indispensable guide will turn your trepidation into delight. –Kathy Martin, Food Editor, The Miami Herald How to win: I’m guessing that you read this web site because you are interested in international food, travel, and culture. Awesome. Or you are standing by to see if I actually can cook one meal for every country in the world! Or perhaps you just like watching videos of cute babies eating international food…. which, trust me, I get. Super-duper. Either way…. …


Giveaway: Linda Bladholm, Two of Two

Thank you for all your responses on Facebook! We have a winner, chosen at random by Yay!! Here is the winning response: Astrid Lague – I have a friend who is from Southern India, and I’d love to see where he is from and eat some authentic naan made in the tandoor and any other tandoor specialties. Not sure that is what’s around in Southern India… but Indian food is one of my absolute favorites! Congratulations, Astrid! No, we’re still not giving Linda away. However, if I could take Linda with me on shopping excursions, I’d probably spend a lot less time scrunching my face up into a question mark while food shopping. You see, as I cook food and recipes from around the world for my cooking challenge (to eat one meal from each country of the world),  I’m learning just how many ingredients I’ve never heard of. Not that I thought I “knew it all” before this A-Z Global Table Adventure, but still. It’s humbling. For anyone following along who is interested …

Giveaway: Linda Bladholm, One of Two

NOTE: A WINNER was selected by! Yay! See who was selected. No, we aren’t giving away Linda Bladholm herself. We’re doing the next best thing. This week, during our Canadian Global Table Adventure, we’re giving away two of Linda’s books. Canada is indeed a melting pot of Asian, Indian and other cultures – so it is appropriate that we give away The Asian Grocery Store Demystified today and The Indian Grocery Store Demystified Friday. And, if you’re following our Adventure, these books will certainly help you cook along with us and eat your way around the world! Before I even opened this book, I fell in love. Linda made this book the perfect size to tuck away in a purse (or man purse) for impromptu stops at Asian Grocery Stores. Genius! And, yes, in case you’re wondering… in this case, you can tell a book by its cover – the insides are just as great. A little about The Asian Grocery Store Demystified: While the ingredients are readily available in more than 5,000 Asian markets dotting …
