Wednesday Give Away - Julia Childs Cook Book


At this time of year when it's Wintery and bleak outside, the perfect thing to bring some warmth to a home is a bit of cooking.

So this week's give away is by Julia Childs, the woman who brought exuberance and excitement into the kitchen with her delicious recipes and enthusiasm for eating. It is her "Julia's Kitchen Wisdom" book where you will learn, "Essential techniques and recipes from a lifetime of cooking". Sigh, sounds perfect to me.

Also if you haven't seen the film, "Julie and Julia" I suggest it to be a perfect dvd to stay in, snuggled up under a rug with a glass of your favourite vino.

Once again to enter you just need to be a Vintage by Lou Lou blog follower and to spice it up a bit, leave a comment below about what your favourite Winter warming food is.

The give away closes midnight next Tuesday (AEST time).

I would also like to congratulate Leeann from Fabulously French as the give away winner for the Endless Jewel gift certificate.

P.S. I've just realised I will be announcing the winner for this book by a French inspired cook on Bastille Day. Kinda perfect xx

  7. I loved the film! I'd love to win this book - perfect for a winter giveaway!
    Hmm..my favourite winter food is a good mashed potato with a tonne of butter!!

  8. I would love to win this! And my favorite winter meal to cook is Bolongese!

  9. Favourite winter warming food? Easily soups - pumpkin, turnip, roast tomato (if you are lucky enough to live in a part of the world that can produce tomatoes year round), etc. Paired with generously buttered toast soldiers of course. Yum!

  10. What a fantasticly delish giveaway! My favorite winter warmer would have to be home made apple pie with vanilla icecream. Yum!

  11. I love Julia Child and of course the J & J movie is one of my faves! As a very recent winner of one of your gorgeous giveaways, I won't enter this giveaway, but for fun, my favourite Winter warmer food would be my Farmhouse Chicken Pot Pie...mmm or of course mashed potato and gravy! Hugs ~ Tina xx

  12. I have been luking but this had drawn me out...
    I love a hearty home made soup cooked long and slow, or slow-cooker curry with an aroma that fills my home; and then as the home made bread comes for the oven the fragrences delight the senses. Bring out the my blue & white china, lock out the cold and who cares that it is winter?

  13. I loved that movie and the book. I read Julia Child's Life in France as well. My favourite winter warmer is curried pumpkin and chicken soup..a family favourite! Sounds weird...works a treat!

  14. what a perfect give away lou! would be the perfect addition to any kitchen shelf! as you know, my favourite winter comfort food is hot, creamy pumpkin soup with parmesan and pepper with a side of homemade fresh crusty bread. MMMM know you've gone and made me hungery!!
