"Perhaps the most impressive of all the cookbook blogs are the three devoted to the 2004 edition of Gourmet magazine's "The Gourmet Cookbook" -- all 5¼ pounds and 1,300-odd recipes of it. Befitting this culinary Everest, all three writers are overachievers in their professional lives."

--Lee Gomes, The Wall Street Journal, May 28, 2008
"I should have told you before how much I've been enjoying reading your thoughts. You seem like such a great cook."

--Ruth Reichl, Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet Magazine, June 8 2008, comment on "Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream".

Contest Announcement! Win a double-signed copy of the new Gourmet Today!

Double-signed? What's that, you may ask.

Signed by Ruth Reichl, and signed by me. Actually, I haven't signed it yet. I might do something more elaborate. Perhaps an essay. Or a dirty limerick! A dirty limerick about cooking...or blogging...hmmm.

There once was a blogger named ______
Who liked to put _____in her _________
But one fine spring day
She saw it THIS way
and since then has used it as ___________

Well, anyway.

There's a nice pretty copy of Gourmet Today here, and I'm holding a contest for it.

What are the rules? Boy am I tempted to hold a dirty limerick contest, but what I'm hoping is that you'll use it to write your own cook-through blog...and with that hope in mind I'm asking you to send me a blog post for a recipe that you've just done. Could be anything--pie, pot roast, lemonade.

And what I'm looking for is style, baby! Anybody can give a blow-by-blow--what I want is your writing voice shining through. Post your post in the comments section below, and I'll announce a winner on October 14.

Sharpen your pencils, and begin!

Wish I could cook through a whole cookbook. Maybe I could find a short baking cookbook. Love baking. Any suggestions?
