Welcome to FOODIE FRIDAY! For the entire month of September, we’ve been celebrating the latest book launch of journalist/author/cook ROBIN MATHER‘s “THE FEAST NEARBY.” The blogs for this month included a two-part Q&A with Robin (links here: http://paulayoo.com/blog/?p=899 and http://paulayoo.com/blog/?p=912) and we also featured a special recipe from Robin (link here: http://paulayoo.com/blog/?p=946).
Folks interested in participating in our signed book giveaway contest had to either post a comment on these blogs or email to request that their names be included for the drawing.
Well, after a month of nail-biting suspense, I now present to you… not one, not two, not three… but FIVE winners! Woo hoo! Robin has generously offered five signed copies of her latest book, “THE FEAST NEARBY” (TenSpeed 2011) to five lucky winners! Wow, Robin, thank you for your generosity.
(Keep reading after the jump to find out if you won!)
To conduct the book giveaway contest drawing in the fairest and most objective way possible, I asked my cat Oreo to be the official judge…
After shaking the hat filled with names several times, Oreo (and well, of course I had to help) carefully pawed the hat and drew five names AT RANDOM.
So congratulations to…
I will email the winners soon to gather address info so they can receive a signed copy of Robin Mather’s “THE FEAST NEARBY.”
Thank you also to Robin for participating this month and for your incredible generosity. For more info on Robin, check out her website here: http://thefeastnearby.com/
Congratulations to our winners!
