First Year Anniversary Book Giveaway!

Today is the one year anniversary of my blog, CookThatBook!

To think that a full 365 days have passed since I first (nervously!) launched this website seems impossible. As the old adage says; how quickly time flies when you’re having fun. When I reflect upon the past year I am incredibly thankful for all of the wonderful people I’ve met, the new foodie friends I’ve made, and the numerous culinary experiences I have enjoyed along the way.

In celebration of CookThatBook’s one year anniversary, I will be giving away a copy of Dorie Greenspan’s “Around My French Table” to one lucky reader! To enter for a chance to win, post a comment below telling me about your favourite cookbook of all time. On October 31st one name will be drawn randomly from the list of comments. A huge thank you to the folks over at Thomas Allen & Son, Ltd. for donating a copy of the book for our giveaway!

I initially began this website because of  my out of control cookbook collection! With two small children at home I found myself searching for a project that went beyond my roles as wife and mother – something just for me. One night I found myself staring at my cookbooks, thinking about how the majority of my obsession had never been used. It was at that point I decided to create a food blog as a means of actually doing something with my cookbooks besides simply collecting them. They needed a purpose in life! As a result, I came up with the idea of starting a blog dedicated entirely to the review of cookbooks. One by one I would make my way through the stacks of books taking over my house, testing three recipes from each book, recording the results and providing an overall review to share with others.

So a year after launching my site has my cookbook collection decreased in size? Absolutely not! I doubt it ever will.

A heartfelt thank you to my loyal readers, all of the celebrity chefs I have interviewed, and the publishing houses who have been so wonderful in feeding my cookbook addiction by sending review copies.
