Share an Idea, Win a Cookbook

Posted By on Mon, Nov 7, 2011 at 7:18 AM

Just six more weeks until the holidays start, and Bites is all about what you'd like to get or give. We've got a big beautiful bag of cookbooks, and because you've been the best readers and contributors any blogger could ask for, you'll have the chance to win one over the next few weeks, for keeping or gifting.

Braising season is here, and as brisket is highly braise-worthy, let the giving begin with The Brisket Book by Stephanie Pierson (Andrews McMeel, 2011). Brisket stories, facts, anatomy, selection, butchering, interviews with professionals — Pierson immersed herself in all things brisket to create this love story. There's even a song.

And recipes! When you weary of brisket-plus-wine-plus-slow-cooker, you've got a couple dozen alternatives from the likes of Joan Nathan, John Besh, Daniel Boulud, Coleman Andrews and Nach Waxman. (I've made several, and still counting. ... )

A little heads-up to sharpen your competitive urge: Because of the long connection of brisket and cholent, The Brisket Book is pretty Jewish-flavored, you Hanukkah celebrators.

To enter, tell Bites nation the best restaurant, cooking or food shopping tip you've ever gotten here on Bites, whether in a story or from a comment.
