Win an Antonio Carluccio Pasta Book !!!!
« on: March 18, 2009, 11:44:03 pm »
Last night I was privileged to be sitting next to Antonio Carluccio at dinner here in Melbourne.  He is here for our Food & Wine Festival and is going to Adelaide and Sydney for some functions next week.

I had taken out my various copies of his books and found that I have 2 copies of "Passion for Pasta".  I had him sign it and so now, ... if anybody would like a slightly used, but still in very good condition, signed copy ...

POST a recipe in the forum ....  it can be the simplest thing ... I am not looking for inventiveness, creativity, just recipes to fill the forum. 


OR ...  review a recipe from the pages here or in a TMX cookbook that you have - any book from UK, Australia.

Like last time - 5 "tickets" for a recipe and 1 ticket for a review.

It is simple - but just designed to make our forum more valuable and even more interactive.

DEADLINE is April 23  -  so get to work in the kitchen or on the computer.

Buona fortuna a tutti !!!

Sorry, been out of contact - now sitting in transit in London Heathrow. 

Did an Excel spreadsheet with 5 numbers for recipe, 1 for a review and then used a Random Number generator program to pick the winner.

Not surprisingly, considering sheer volume of numbers - judydawn won.  Congratulations. 

You'll have to wait tho' til I return home at end of May.

Well, that was a surprise Thermomixer.  Had forgotten all about that competition for Antonio Carluccio's pasta book.  I rarely ever win anything so it is a real thrill.  DH was excited for me too. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thermomixer-how exciting to be in London, I do hope your enjoying your trip.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Thanks Cookie1, now I know how you felt when you won the cooking competition for March although there was much more skill involved in your win than mine - I just went about my daily routine of postings, forgetting all about the book prize ::) ::) ::)

:D Congratulations!
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Thanks Meganjane.  Love your little reference to wine under the posting.  That was the only thing that spoilt my lunch today - I didn't have a bottle in the fridge to enjoy with the meal. ;D ;D

Have today received My Antonia Carluccio pasta book that I won from Thermomixer - thanks indeed for that TM.  Now, I wonder if I will be able to convert any recipes for the TMX ??? ??? ??? I'll have to have a good read of it first.
