Hey, Dummy… Feeling Lucky?
In my last entry I mentioned that I won a contest and that Culture Magazine gave me a bunch of cool cheese stuff… well, now it’s your turn! One of the cool things I got was the power to hold my own contest and bestow some cool cheese stuff on YOU, my readers!
The prize is pretty enviable: a copy of “Cheese for Dummies” by Laurel Miller and Thalassa Skinner. Here’s a synopsis:
From a pungent Gorgonzola to the creamiest Brie, the world of cheese involves a vocabulary of taste second only to wine. With the rise of artisanal cheeses, this once humble food made from curdled milk is now haute cuisine. And to make the new world of cheese less intimidating, Laurel Miller and Thalassa Skinner have created a handy primer to selecting cheese, pairing cheese with wine, cooking with cheese, and making cheese. In Cheese For Dummies, everyday cheese lovers will learn how to become true cheese connoisseurs.
Not only will readers get a look at how different cheeses are made around the world, in Cheese For Dummies, they’ll develop enough of a palate to discern which cheese is right for them.
Sounds like a real page-turner, huh? (I don’t even own a copy, myself, and this has got me thinking that my cheese library is lacking.) This book is for you though. So, get your entry in, cross your fingers, rub your rabbit’s foot, and don’t take off that lucky underwear!
Here’s how to enter: Leave a comment on this post and tell me about your best, most exciting or interesting experience with cheese. Make it a good one!
Next Sunday, March 17, 2013 (because even if you’re not Irish, that’s a luck day), I’ll select a winner based on how much I love your cheese story. I’ll post the winner’s name on the blog and also email you directly, so that we can make arrangements to have your copy of “Cheese for Dummies” mailed to you.
Don’t be a dummy, enter now. Best of luck!!!
