candle 79 giveaway

by Kristina Sloggett

in Giving Back

Happy Holidays!

As many times as I have been to my favorite city, I have yet to enjoy Candle 79, New York City’s premier sustainable restaurant. The Candle 79 cookbook went on sale November 1st, and I had my copy soon after! This book has the recipes for the restaurants earth-friendly upscale eats alongside stunning color photos. It is a beautiful piece of art, and would make a great gift.

I have already made several of the recipes – from seitan piccata (my favorite!) and live lasagna to pillowy doughnuts and the French 79 cocktail. I will be sharing reviews of some of these recipes later, right now, I want to give one of these beautiful books away!

Five ways to enter, please leave a comment for each:

1) What is your favorite cookbook or restaurant?

 

2) Tweet this –>

I absolutely Love this cookbook!!! A great idea for a gift this year, I am personally giving Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Everyday. My grandma, stepmom and sister are all getting it and hopefully inspiring them to cook more vegetarian. It is one of my favorite cookbooks, much like Candle 79. My favorite recipe I made from it was a spin in a quinoa burger: Black Rice Pesto burger and celery root that I made for The Holy Kale.. So good, you can check it out here http://www.theholykale.com/2011/11/black-rice-pesto-burger-and-celery-root/

See you on Facebook!

My favorite cookbook is honestly a Martha Stewart book. Every recipe we’ve done in that book has been great. Even if we questioned some of the weird methods in the book!

my favorite cookbook fluctuates, but right now i’m favoring kathy hester’s vegan slow cooker and julie hasson’s vegan diner.

my favorite restaurant also changes from time to time, but sticky fingers in dc will always hold a special place in my heart (and appetite)
