Autographed Flour Cookbook Giveaway

I love the sense of community amongst the Boston bloggers. It's something I never imagined when I started this little blog. One of the fun things about this blog is the opportunities to meet some cool people and get some free goodies. Most of the goodies are passed along to you guys!

If you live in Boston, you have to know about Flour bakery. They're pretty awesome and everyone loves their sticky buns and the homemade Oreos (which I got to try on the Chocolate Tour). My friend Megan even worked there for a while - how cool is that?



When I found out that Joanne Chang was putting out a Flour Bakery cookbook, I got really excited. Her publishers provided me with a cookbook to giveaway on here and I instantly ordered another one to keep for myself. Joanne will be signing books at the Brookline Booksmith this Saturday at 2:00 PM.

And I'll be waiting in line to get one book signed for me, and one for you!

Some rules
- Anyone can enter (that means you international readers!)
- Giveaway will close at 8PM EST on Friday, November 26
- Leave a comment stating who you would like the book to be made out to (if you do not leave this in the comment, it will be made out to "A Lucky Beantown Baker Reader", like what I did for the autographed Alton Brown cookbook)
- Be sure that I have a way to get ahold of you by leaving your email if it's not in your profile
