Cookbook Giveaway: A winner and a wine book


Cee -- ceevegnashville@gmail.com -- you're the winner of "The Italian Slow Cooker," by Michele Scicolone. Send your snail mail address to me at kpurvis@charlotteobserver.com and I'll send you the book.


Ready for the next giveaway? I've been a fan of the writing of Minnesota's Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl for years. She's smart and a little irreverent, and always enlightening. Now she's turned that writing style into a wine book, "Drink This: Wine Made Simple."
I read the book over the holidays and got a lot out of her approach, which breaks down wine into a few basic styles, then takes you through how to learn those styles. She includes lots of useful tips (if you really want a bargain, look on the bottom shelves) and suggestions for how to hold wine tastings focused on a specific wine.


If you really want a bargain on simple wine instruction, here's your chance: Post here for a chance at the random drawing for "Drink This." If you sign on as anonymous, add a way I can identify you. We'll post the winner next Monday.
