Book Giveaway: A Pig in Provence by Georgeanne Brennan

So, I was just introduced to Yummr, which is a foodie community website with a social networking bent. The deal there is that you can share recipes and cooking videos, and by participation earn points towards winning prizes at their Bazaar, which was most recently updated to include a few copies of Jacques Pepin’s Fast Food My Way.

Courtesy of Houghton-Mifflin Books, Yummr is offering to send a copy of A Pig in Provence by Georgeanne Brennan free to one of you folks who read my blog.

In order to win a copy of the book, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Around the end of next week, I’ll pick one name randomly, and Yummr will mail the winner a copy of A Pig in Provence. The only restriction is that you must be a resident of the US or Canada.

Good luck!
