I've got books, Trout Caviar books, and three of them are looking for a new home among Trout Caviar readers.
What you do, you just leave me a comment on this post relating one of your favorite local food moments of 2011: a first (like, I would say I made birch syrup for the first time this year); a goal achieved (like, I would say I achieved a goal of serving woodcock glazed with birch syrup), an appreciation of a grower, producer, market vendor, etc. These are just examples. Do not let me cramp your style. Mentioning birch syrup will not improve your chances of winning.
I'll chime in with some of my top 2011 moments in the next week and a half, too (though I think I've said enough about...nuff said).
Come the New Year, I'll just dump the names of all the contributors in a hat, and draw three out. You may mention as many highlights of the waning year as you like--and I will very much enjoy reading each and every one--but you only get your name in the hat once.
This offer is void where prohibited, and prohibited where void.
Happy solstice, joyous holidays, and best wishes for a marvelous 2012. Thanks very, very much for reading Trout Caviar.
