Fall 2018 Giveaway!

We'll find any excuse for a good giveaway!
We love celebrating holidays, but as much as the retail marketers tell us that it's time for Santa, we say wait a minute! SLOW DOWN! For us here in the US, we have still have one of our favorite stuff-your-face holidays to look forward to! American Thanksgiving! And what better way to honor it, but by offering a cookbook containing early-American recipes (co-authored and illustrated by a big All Souls fan; she designed the ASC 2017 badge), and the book telling us about our favorite early-American vampire? Since we are feeling so revolutionary, we are going to make this an international giveaway. Not so traitorous, after all -- eh, England? 😏

Up for grabs: 
  1. A Thyme to Discover -- Here's the write-up on A Thyme to Discover: Revive your inner pilgrim and master the art of colonial cooking with sixty recipes celebrating America's earliest days!

    From their voyage on the Mayflower to the days of the American Revolution, early American settlers struggled to survive in the New World. Join us as we travel through time and discover how our forefathers fed their families and grew a nation, from eating nuts and berries to preparing fantastic feasts of seafood and venison, and learn how you can cook like them, too!

    With gorgeous and whimsical hand-drawn illustrations from beginning to end, A Thyme to Discover, spanning the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, is an illustrated historical cookbook for foodies, history buffs, and Americans alike. Cohen and Graves reimagine old original colonial recipes from pilgrims, presidents, and Native Americans, and modify them to suit modern palates and tastes. Arranged chronologically as the English settlers cooked and ate their way into becoming Americans, these deliciously historical recipes include:

    * The First Thanksgiving, 1621: "Venison over Wild Rice Cakes" and "Pumpkin Pudding with Rum Sauce" *Alexander Hamilton's "Beef Stew with Apple Brandy" and Abraham Lincoln's "Chicken Fricasee" * Rhode Island's "Bacon-Kissed Clam Cakes" and Massachusett's "Chowdahhhhh" * Forefather's Day, 1749: "Sufferin' Succcotash with Buttered Lobster" * Jim Beam's "Bourbon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies"
  2.  And, yes! We're throwing in a 1st edition US hardcover of Time's Convert, too!
UPDATE - 10 Dec 2018: Congratulations, Michelle!
