Thank you for the overwhelming response to this giveaway! A winner has been chosen–scroll down to the end of the post for details.
Instead of one recipe today, how about an entire book? Because I took the photos for Wild About Greens, Nava Atlas’ brilliant new cookbook, her editor was kind enough to send me several copies, and I would like to pass two of those books on to a couple of my faithful readers. So look below for details on how you can enter to win.
But first, some photos of the book:
When you take photos for a book, you never know how they’ll look; the designers crop them to fit their layout and design and sometimes even flip them so that they are mirror images of the way you actually shot them. The designers of Wild About Greens did a fantastic job of editing my photos, making them look better than I ever expected.
My photos are in a color insert in the middle of the book, but Nava’s lovely illustrations grace almost every page. One of my favorite sections is the introduction to leafy greens which gives information on 18 different types of greens.
But my very favorite page? That would have to be the title page!
For more information about the book, as well as the recipe for Nava’s Three Potato Salad with Arugula, see my earlier post.
If you would like a chance to win your own copy of Wild About Greens, all you have to do is leave a comment below telling me your favorite leafy green vegetable and how you like to prepare it. The contest will close at noon Central time on Wednesday, June 20, when I will pick a winner at random. Check back here to see if you’ve won. But wait! For a second chance to win, check my Facebook page, where I’m running a second contest simultaneously. Leave a comment on the Wild About Greens post there, and I’ll select a winner at random from those entries, too.
Update: The contest is now over. The winning comment, selected by Random.org, is number 425, by Sheila, who wrote, “I love baby bok choy stir ‘fried’ with veggie broth with shiitake mushrooms and other veggies over brown rice. Sometimes I thicken the sauce with a corn starch slurry for a thicker coating over my rice.” Congratulations, Sheila! Baby bok choy is one of my favorites, too.
Thank you for all your comments, especially for the cooking suggestions. I could cook greens all year using your ideas!
