Cookbook Giveaway

Today I'm following in the footsteps of many other bloggers and celebrating this season of giving. I will be giving away one signed copy of the cookbook I authored with my father and photographer brother, Finger Lakes Feast!



Finger Lakes Feast is not just a cookbook. It's full of gorgeous photographs....



Lots of wonderful essays and quirky fun facts on food and local history and agriculture...


Do you know how many miles a honeybee has to fly to gather enough nectar for a single pound of honey?

55,000 miles.
The equivalent of circling the earth more than twice.



And of course, it is full of delicious and colorful recipes...


Rustic Apple Spice Cake
Cilantro Shrimp Risotto
Capron Street Buttermilk Pancakes
Black Beans and Coconut Rice with Mango Salsa
Creole Sausage on Jack Cornbread
French Chocolate Pudding
Raspberry Red-Wine Sorbet
and so many more. 


Local author and NPR contributor, Amy Dickinson, writes that, "Finger Lakes Feast unlocks the delicious mystery and quirky history behind our local foods and flavors. Now everyone will learn what we locals know: our wines and foods are the perfect expression of the beautiful region they come from. They are simple, hardy, and full of life and flavor."

To win a free copy of our book please leave a comment at the end of the post. I will pick a winner randomly from the pool of comments on Sunday night and announce the winner on Monday.

Good luck and thank you for your support!

  1. I would love a chance to win another--signed--copy of your cookbook! (And you were wise to give people several days to enter. If I could do my little book giveaway contest over, I would give people more than a day to respond.)

  7. I really don't need another copy as I've ordered many, but I do want to say I've shown it everyone I can think of, brought it along to shops to promote it, sold it at our community holiday sale, and can't wait to give it as gifts this year. And the pfeffernusse turned out great!

  18. From all the excerpts I've seen, your cookbook seems wonderful. I especially appreciate the way you and your dad and brother were able to show us that cookbooks can be so much more than just recipes and directions. You've made it educational and entertaining, through the captivating photography, delicious recipes, and the shared knowledge on such a fascinating region, and so I admire that a lot :) I already have several people in mind who would love such a gift...myself included...and I'm doing my best to spread the word. Congratulations to the three of you on such an exciting accomplishment!

  25. Kate, I just left a short (5-star!) review on Amazon. It's under the pseudonym "TJ," because the only Amazon purchases we've made have been through the e-mail account my husband and I share, so it recognized me as him. I tried to set up my own account, but it didn't work. Anyway, I love the book! I hope you have a lot of success with it!
