Win the Foodista Cookbook – Contest Giveaway!

UPDATE: Congratulations to Nutmeg Nanny! Her Mulled Cider is the contest winner!

The holidays are quickly approaching and my dearest readers will not go empty-handed.

Up for grabs is a copy of Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook. Inside this beautifully photographed cookbook, you’ll find 100 recipes and stories from today’s top food bloggers.  Of course, my recipe is included too :)

I really love this polished, collaborative effort that showcases the talent of food enthusiasts from all walks of life. The recipes are inspiring, the stories are fun, and it includes all types of dishes from appetizers, soups, meats, and right down to desserts and cocktails.

Want it? It’s easy, promise! Heck, I’ll even autograph it if you want but it might ruin the book *chuckle*


Email a photo of your favourite holiday recipe to [mel at] OR post the link below as a comment.

I’ll post it in this Facebook Album and the photo that receives the most “LIKE”s by December 25th is the winner of the book and gets plenty of bragging rights.


  • Think “festive food porn” – ho ho ho!
  • Be creative to stand out from the crowd.
  • Be sure to ask all your friends to “LIKE” your entry! They need to “like” Gourmet Fury first in order to do so! :D
  • No, it doesn’t have to be food that you cooked, but it has to be your photo.

The contest is open to readers from Canada and the US. Good luck!
