Here at this most excellent juncture midway between the beginning of autumn and the end of winter, the halfway point in my favorite run of months, a short break in the midst of the magical dark nights to welcome the return of the sun, it is the perfect time to start life anew!
Which is exactly what I plan to do after a steady run of difficult losses and big changes that have kept me away from my the work I love.
I’m giving away copies of Eat Feed Autumn Winter to welcome loyal listeners back to the podcast, to celebrate the anniversary of being named best entertaining book by Epicurious, and to get everyone thinking beyond the holidays and on ahead to all the delicious, surprising seasonal food that makes winter my favorite time in the kitchen. Subscribe to the blog or check back from time to time to share your thoughts and see if you’ve won.
Here’s how it works: I’ll be posting fun food questions throughout the season on the blog. Just tap in your witty, whimsical, clever, inspired, nostalgic, and passionate ideas. One respondent for each question wins a book. Easy as that. And I’m pretty flexible about where I’ll ship, too, so don’t worry if you’re in the Antipodes or Antartica.
Of course looking forward often means looking back and celebrating the best of the past. So, my first question is “What is the best food or cooking gift you have ever received?”
(PS. Keep an ear out for a new podcast on fresh ideas about caviar. And plenty more in the new year!)
