WIN a book by commenting on this post!

I’m super excited to announce the first ever Glossary Giveaway! How do you fancy winning a fantastic SA cookbook called Life’s a Beach Cottage: Second Helping?

It’s packed with mouth-watering photographs and delicious recipes like ‘The Best T-Bone Steak in the World’ and ‘Brown Sugar Meringues with Lemon Curd and Cinnamon – nom! The clever chef behind the pages is Neil Roake, the Durban based food editor of House and Leisure Mag and Creative Director of Modern Museum ad agency.

To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post along with your email address so that I can contact you if you win. Tell me anything you like…why you want to win, what you ate for breakfast, how many times you really watched Twilight. The contest runs for a week & the winner will be chosen at random on the 3rd of March.

One little note - the giveaway is only open to those of you who live in South Africa. I just don’t have enough in my piggy bank to ship overseas. Sorry.

Now you local lads and lasses best get commenting. Good luck!

PS: Thanks to all you who left such interesting, lengthy comments on this post about South African Style. If you missed it, please feel free join the conversation. x

This cook book would definitely change my life. It would help change 'monday pie night', and 'tuesday woolworths salad nigh't into 'amazing meal prepared by Mel night'.

Yes. Please.

WOOO-O, Sweet Mother of Pearl! So pretty beautiful lovely. I am horrid in the kitchen with out a recipe to follow. I generally burn the chops or bugger the sauce. I would love this cook book so I can have most delicious dinners ready for Mr. Potta when he arrives home after a long days work. Normally he has to cook and he only gets home around seven (where as I get home at 17:05) or he has to be happy with eggs and bacon, cupcakes or toast. Poor Gary. Help me be a good girlfriend PLEASE! It's a need not a want. Yes.

I had yoghurt & coffee for breakfast and I have lost count of how many times I've watched Twilight. Sad but true.
