Book giveaway: Momofuku [CLOSED]

reviewed by Duncan - admin

tgb-giveawayIt’s time for our first giveaway on The Gastronomer’s Bookshelf! A copy of Momofuku has been kindly provided by Crown Publishing. Mark Manguerra reviewed Momofuku here. To enter, you need to do one of two things before 12noon GMT, 07 February, 2010, depending on whether you have your own website, or are one of those “normal” foodbook lovers.

1. If you have your own site, in your next post you should tell your readers about the most important food book of your life and mention The Gastronomer’s Bookshelf. You can do this as part of any normal post or as a separate post. Make sure you leave a comment here to tell us you’ve posted on your site.

2. If you don’t have your own site (probably most of our readers), send us an email explaining in about 100 words what the most important food book has been in your life and why. Use the contact form to email your entry.

Oh, and why not tell your friends!

Once again, your entry has to have been emailed to us or linked to by leaving a comment below no later than 07 February, 12noon GMT (0700 New York; 1200 London; 1300 Paris; 2000 Singapore; 2300 Sydney). The winner of the Momofuku book will be randomly drawn and announced here.

NOTE: We will email the winner requesting their postal address, so make sure you provide a working email address. The winner must reply to our message within 48 hours or we will select another person.
