Giveaway from Hoffman Media: "Taking Tea"

Friends, I've been practically sitting on my hands waiting to reveal today's fun news: Hoffman Media contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing some of their books and hosting a giveaway. How fast do you think I said yes? Although I already have quite a few Hoffman books (and an embarrassing number of their magazines), I had not yet ordered the new "Taking Tea," so I was happy to get a copy in the mail last week and even happier to be able to give one away to one of you!

And what a lovely book it is! I always love reading about tearooms, and the book features recipes from 18 of them across the country, from the Willard InterContinental in Washington, D.C., to Paris In A Cup in Orange, California. I've already spotted several recipes that are going on my fall cooking list: Salted Caramel-Chocolate Scones, Lamingtons (chocolate cake pieces), and Pumpkin Spiced Soup with candied bacon. Yum!

If you'd like to be entered to win a copy of "Taking Tea," just leave an "Enter Me" comment to this post between now and 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30, and you'll be entered to win. I'll let Hoffman Media know when the winner is named, and they will send the book directly to the lucky recipient. US entries only, please. Good luck!

Please note: The giveaway has ended, but you can order a copy of this book yourself by going here!

  41. I know I'm late to comment, but I have to recommend one of the 18 tearooms featured in this lovely book. New Jersey's #1 establishment to take tea, Teaberry's in Flemington, NJ, is heads above anything else in and out of our area. The tea offering is extensive and prepared perfectly, their seasonal menu is "out of this world" delicious, service is attentive and highly knowledgeable, and the ambiance of the historical building is beyond measure! If you are visiting Hunterdon County in north western NJ, and you love tea, this is a must visit. You won't be disappointed.
