One of the great perks about owning a food blog is that often I will receive things in the mail that companies want me to try and review. I am very upfront in letting them know that while I don't mind receiving them, I will be very honest about my feelings about them.
One of the things I love the most is getting cookbooks. Over the past few months, I've received 2 very excellent books. The first is called Street Food, which is exactly the type of cookbook I would write if given the opportunity. It's part travelogue, part recipes, and beautiful pictures. It's full of great street food from all over the world, and the recipes are easy enough for the home chef to follow.
The second book I just recently received is Morimoto's new cookbook, Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking.I was completely floored by this one. Although the recipes are definitely more for the gourmet chef, the history and pictures are absolutely beautiful. And here's the best part - I have 2 copies so I am offering one of them to one very lucky reader. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what your favorite food book or cookbook is before Midnight (Eastern Standard Time) on September 9th in order to be put into the drawing. On the 10th, I'll randomly pick a comment and the book is yours. If you do not win, however, I highly recommend at least looking through the book. The pictures are absolutely incredible, and if you love Japanese food, you'll love this book. Note - anyone is eligible, regardless of location, provided you can receive a package by post.
Now go ahead, leave me a comment and put yourself in the running for this fantastic book!
