Help Me Celebrate - A Giveaway



My 200th post snuck up on me! Custom dictates a giveaway, so I'd like to do a small amount of good with mine. You all know how impressed I was with the work being done at the Sala Bai Hotel School in Cambodia. I have five copies of the cookbook that was written to raise funds for the school. I will give away 1 book for every 100 people who leave a comment here - up to 500 comments. It's for a good cause. I hope you'll participate. I will do a random drawing on Saturday, April 25th and post the winners immediately after the drawing around 9:00AM PST.

I am always up for a celebration. Looks like a good book!

Laura said...

OK in case I don't win :) I would love to know how I could get a copy. My husband and I are obsessed with Cambodian food from our time in Cleveland (little known fact: Cleveland has great international food, including one of the only totally authentic and amazing Cambodian restaurants probably in the entire midwest, except maybe Minneapolis) and we have been really saddened at the lack of Cambodian cookbooks out there. None of the ones we own has our favorite dish, a curry that I can barely remember the name of at this point but I know I would recognize it if I saw it! But at any rate, I am always looking to add to the Cambodian part of my SE Asian cookbook collection (Vietnamese and Thai especially being much easier to find).

Anyway congrats on the... I just realized I am not sure what you are celebrating? one year of your blog? Whatever it is, congrats! :)

Count me in. A cookbook is the gift that keeps giving. Great idea.

I had no idea that Cleveland had a Cambodian restaurant! I live about 70 mi. south of Clev. Congrats on your 200th blog entry. Steph

Julia said...

Congrats on your 200th post!! Very exciting!

I've taken a collection of cookbooks purchased in Asia -- I think (true or not) that I'm getting more "authentic" recipes. I'd be thrilled to see what's in the Cambodian cookbooks.

Cheers,
Julia

I'm up for that, Mary!! Enter me in the contest!

How can we buy a cookbook if we don't win? Or did I miss that.

My doctor says I have ADD. Personally I think he's . . . hey, look! A chicken!!

Congratulations on your 200th post!

What a great way to celebrate it :)

I would love to enter this giveaway. I've never tried Cambodian food before but I believe it's similiar to Thai food.

Laura said...

Mary: thanks for the link. Stephanie in Ohio: it is on Lorain Ave on the west side of Cleveland... I want to say in 13000-14000 range. It is called Phnom Penh. It is possibly my favorite restaurant ever and I have been known to drive long distances out of my way to go back.

Mary said...

Stephanie and Laura the two of you have me laughing at myself. Sometimes I float on a plane of existence known to no others. However, now I get it and I'm glad you found each other.

Farmer Jo said...

I'd love to have a cookbook. I've been meaning to explore Cambodian cuisine more since I can't really describe it yet. And I hate when something is elusive. ;)

Nice work on posting 200! I must admit, in my large cookbook collection--I don't have a Cambodian Cookbook. Shocking really. Thanks for the contest...
