Along with books and music, my other true love is food. I love cooking, baking, and above all, eating. Cookbooks are scattered throughout my house, and I love to read food-related magazines and memoirs.
Baked Elements: Our 10 Favorite Ingredients is the cookbook currently open on my counter as I attempt to recreate the Brooklyn bakery's fantastic desserts.
McSweeney's food quarterly Lucky Peach, now in its fifth issue, is my favorite periodical. I drop everything when it arrives and read it, nonstop, from cover to cover, every issue has fascinated and informed.
To enter this week's contest, leave a comment naming a musician and an author (living or dead) that you would like to have over for dinner for a chance to win these two books and a $100 Threadless gift certificate.
One winner, chosen randomly from the commenters, will receive the following prizes:
A $100 Threadless gift certificate to buy book-related t-shirts like Storytellers, The Best Channels Since 1465, Fahrenheit 451, Brainy Rainbow, or Word!, and music-related t-shirts like Death Note, Funkalicious, Music Snob, or anything else that catches your fancy.
If you have already have the books or they don't interest you, I am happy to substitute a second $100 Threadless gift certificate for the books.
The winner will be chosen randomly at midnight ET Friday evening (February 22nd).
