As I mentioned on Wednesday, I was lucky enough to get a free cookbook and a chance to participate in an event called Cookbook Spotlight, hosted by Stephanie and Cath. We'll be selecting, cooking and posting about a dish that we each select out of the brand new, (not yet released!), cookbook, Gale Gand's Brunch. Even more exciting, I was given the opportunity to give an extra free book and a spot in the event to one of my readers.
So last night Max and I, (OK, really just me), prepped the drawing for today. Nope, we don't use a fancy random number generator, instead here at Kahakai Kitchen, we kick it old school by writing the names of everyone who entered down on a piece of paper, (twice for most of you since in addition to the email, you left a comment on the post and got a bonus entry), cutting them out, putting them in a bag, and randomly drawing out one of the names. I know it was actually Breakfast at Tiffany's, not brunch, but what they heck, it seemed only fitting to draw the winner out of a little turquoise Tiffany & Co. bag! Here are the entries.
I really thought Max was going to help out, but although he stuck his head and paw in the bag, pulling out the slip with the winner's name was all up to me! (I think it is a combination of a short attention span and his lack of opposable thumbs!)
I wish I could have given everyone a book, but there could only be one winner. And drum roll please...The winner is...
It's Heather from girlichef! Responding to the question, "What is your favorite food for brunch?", Heather said. "I love all things brunch...but I'll go with a big strata...filled with seasonal ingredients. And a mimosa. Or 3." Sounds like my kind of brunch partner! Congrats to Heather. (The publisher has your address and will be sending out your cookbook soon).
Thanks to everyone who entered. Giveaways are fun, so since I have a couple of blog milestones coming up, check back next month for another one.
