The wonderful folks at Morrow Cookbooks sent me a whole bunch of books by Emeril Lagasse to thank me for participating in the One-Pot Blogging Party for his new cookbook, Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders. I already had a couple of them in my collection, so you know what that means … it’s GIVEAWAY time!
I’ll be giving away one book this week and at least one more between now and Christmas. This week’s prize is Emeril’s New New Orleans Cooking, published way back in 1993. The book covers just about everything you’d want to know about NEW New Orleans cuisine which Emeril defines as “food whose roots are planted in a solid foundation of Creole heritage, but which has grown through exposure to other exotic cultures; Creole reinvented with an Oriental, Portuguese, or New Mexican flourish.”
To enter the giveaway: Comment on this post and tell me what New Orleans-style recipe you hope is in the book (e.g. Gumbo). Those of you on Twitter can increase your chances of winning by tweeting a link to this contest, including @diabeticFoodie in your tweet. Leave a comment here telling me that you’ve tweeted.
Contest ends at midnight Eastern time on Thursday, November 10, 2011. The lucky winner, to be chosen randomly, will be announced on Friday, November 11, 2011. This contest is only open to U.S. residents.
