Today is our birthday, Yaaaaayyyyy! It was exactly one year ago today that I wrote my first blog post and went live with my gluten-free, mostly vegetarian Blog, the Book of Yum. For a walk down memory lane, check out My first post, a homage to Brussels Sprout. *sniff* How far we’ve come!
We’ve brought you gluten-free recipes from all over the globe, from China to Japan, Mexico (even dairy free!), India, and Europe. We’ve also taken you on our gluten-free adventures to Portland, Oregon, India, and Austria. It’s been quite a year and I can’t wait to see what culinary adventures we have over the next year!
To celebrate the gluten-free and mostly vegetarian Book of Yum’s One-Year-Anniversary, I am hosting a contest! To enter:
Please write a brief note about your favorite post this year in the comments here. Tell me why it was your favorite post. Include your name (pen name is fine), your place of residence and the URL of the Book of Yum post. Please tell me if you are gluten-free or have additional allergies or dietary preferences (vegetarian or vegan). The winner will receive a new paperback copy of ONE of their choice of the following Bette Hagman cookbooks:
More from the Gluten-free Gourmet: Delicious Dining Without Wheat
The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy: Wheat-Free and Gluten-Free with Less Fuss and Less Fat
The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread: More Than 200 Wheat-Free Recipes
*In the case of a non-gluten free winner, the winner will receive a copy of the vegetarian cookbook, Peanut Butter Planet: Around the World in 80 Recipes, from Starters to Main Dishes to Desserts
You must be a 21 year or older resident of the U.S. , Canada, or Japan to enter this contest. (If you are a younger reader, you are welcome to tell your parents about this contest!) Winner’s name will be selected out of a hat (or shoebox). Once winner is selected, the winner will be announced on this site and emailed.

Contest entries will be accepted until midnight of January 31st. Winner will be announced on February 1st, 2008 and we will have a roundup of the favorite posts. Wheee! Sound like fun?
