Season For Giving

Tis the season again...

This year Chez Pim is once again running their Menu For Hope charity, and to boost charity efforts Michael Ruhlman has submitted a personalized copy of Elements of Cooking as a prize.

Far more impressive then just one personalized copy is the vast number of prizes being raffled off for the event;

Special Culinary Experiences
Books and Magazines
Cooking equipments and other miscellaneous good things
Wine and spirits

This is the time of year when we are supposed to think about others, but with so many goodies at stake its hard to do that!

Seriously though, this can be a tough year for many families, in the US and abroad, so even if you don't give to this charity I ask you give somewhere. Volunteer, give money, clothes, canned food, anything to families and organizations that are respected.

Also, the holiday season sees a vast drop in blood storage levels across the country. Please visit your local Red Cross Donation Center or donate online.

But back to the contest for a second.

Its really very easy. Just follow these few steps and you will be entered in a drawing for that copy of Elements of Cooking, or any of the prizes you choose.
