A cookbook giveaway
I love new cookbooks, and I'm especially excited when fellow food bloggers publish books! The latest one in this genre is Gott att ge bort ("Good to give away") by the sweet Linnéa Seidel who blogs at Linneás Skafferi. She's young, but this is actually not her first book - she's done a whole series of books that were sold with one of Swedish newspapers, a few years ago. The photos for those books, as well as this one, are taken by Katja Kristoferson who happens to be a friend of my sister's. It's a small world!
This book is all about edible gifts - small things you can make to bring with you in lieu of flowers, or chocolate. It's much more fun - and much more personal. The book has a wide range of recipes - cookies, flavored sugars, jams and pesto, and even homemade cookie mixes in a jar. There are plenty of packaging ideas as well!
Linnéa and her boyfriend Sebbe just became parents (yeeeeay, congratulations!), and to celebrate that, and to celebrate the book, I'm giving away five copies. To win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, telling me what your favorite edible gift is. Make sure you leave your e-mail address, so I can contact you if you win. The book is in Swedish, but I don't mind shipping internationally if you live elsewhere.
A big thanks to Bonnier Fakta publishing, for providing the books. Giveaway closes on Friday, July 1.
