*** The giveaway has ended. Congratulations to the winners! ***

Here are the two books I will be giving away on March 30th:

Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertant Education of a Reluctant Chef - Gabrielle HamiltonBlood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertant Education of a Reluctant Chef
Gabrielle Hamilton

Released just a week ago, this book has had a lot of press for weeks, especially since Anthony Bourdain gave it a glowing early review: “Magnificent. Simply the best memoir by a chef ever.” Written by Gabrielle Hamilton, the chef of critically acclaimed New York City’s Prune restaurant, it is said to be brutally open and honest yet touching and poignant. It’s a book that’s hard to put down. Judging by the reviews released so far (see a review roundup here), this book is deemed to be one of the best memoirs of the year.

“(This book) makes any “as told to” account of famous chef’s lives look instantly ludicrous and bloodless. I’ve struggled to think of somebody/anybody who’s written a better account of the journey to chefdom and can’t think of anyone who’s come even close. Read this book and prepare to clean your system of all that’s come before. It’s a game-changer and a truly great work by a great writer and great chef.”  – Anthony Bourdain

Plenty: Vibrant Recipes from London's Ottolenghi - Yotam OttolenghiPlenty: Vibrant Recipes from London’s Ottolenghi
Yotam Ottolenghi

This hugely anticipated follow-up to Chef Ottolenghi’s 2008 bestselling Ottolenghi: The Cookbook has been released in the UK and in some other markets but will come out in US and Canada only on March 23rd. Plenty is a collection of vegetarian recipes drawn from Ottolenghi’s Guardian column, ‘The New Vegetarian’, where international ingredients and flavors are combined in creative and innovative ways. International reviews are glowing: be one of the first to put your hands on this exceptional book!

“Although this is not strictly a book for vegetarians – some of the dishes use non-vegetarian cheeses – vegetables take a starring role, with chapter heading such as ‘the mighty aubergine’, ‘roots’ and ‘funny onions’. Even the most meat-loving cook couldn’t fail to be seduced by these recipes.” – Susan Low, Time Out London
