I am surrounded by folks who love to cook. Kids, grown-ups, and everything in between. I always love to hear what got each of them into the kitchen. Why do they cook? What is it that makes them keep coming back? And I'm talking about more than "I just loooooove food!" because we certainly are more than able to find really wonderful eats right here in our bucolic little hamlet.
So today, I thought I'd giveaway a book. In fact, this book:
Chef's Story is a great read where, you guessed it, chefs talk about what got them into the kitchen. Personally, my favorites are the essays by Jacques Torres & Lidia Bastianich.
So here's what you do: Just leave me a comment and let me know what got you cooking? Parents working? (That's mine). Love for the perfect cream puff? Desperation? A strong desire to never eat Ramen noodles again?
I'll pick my favorite and declare (drumroll please), the winner! If you're local you can swing by to grab it, if not, good old first class post will help it to arrive safely. Don't send addresses yet, I'll get in touch once the winner is chosen.
All entries must be received by Tuesday, July 21 at midnight. One teeny-tiny little note: This book is from my personal collection and has been previously loved. It's in great shape and is a great read. And hey, it's free, right? Happy commenting!
