Update: Congrats to Aaron, who requested The Edible Atlas: Around the World in Thirty Nine Cuisines. The book looks fascinating, it’s another I’ve added to the list.
I cannot tell you how many times I have seen an amazing blog giveaway, and then was bummed that it was only available in the US, or US & Canada if someone was being generous. So I was determined to have a giveaway that was available to you no matter where you live, to say thanks.
And the Book Depository makes that really easy. Even though a certain other company seems to have the majority share on the online book market, it isn’t based in the country where I live, and the shipping cost of a book can be horrendous.
The Book Depository, on the other hand, includes the price of shipping in the price of the book, to 90 countries in the world. You don’t have to try to reach the maximum of a shipping weight category or ship to a friend to mail it to you, or think you’ve found a cheap book but get blindsided by shipping costs. Nope, the price that is quoted is the price that will get it to your door, almost wherever you live.
I know that ebook are popular and don’t take up paper resources or have shipping costs, but there is something I love about holding a real hard copy book in my hands. Maybe I’m old fashioned and nostalgic, but reading an ebook just doesn’t have the same satisfaction as reading a book that has pages.
And there are so many amazing cookbooks out there, full of nourishing recipes and beautiful photography. Some of the cookbooks on my radar include:
The Nourished Kitchen, by Jennifer McGruther: Jenny’s blog of the same name is full of traditional, nourishing recipes, and gorgeous photographs. Her cookbook beautifully celebrates the process of farm to table.
Wild Fermentation, by Sandor Ellix Katz: I’m pretty convinced that fermented foods belong to the solution for a number of health issues. I wrote about some of the ways probiotics are good for us, and fermented foods are a tasty, cheap, and guaranteed way to consume some of those necessary bacteria. Many consider this book to be the best start to fermenting.
Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons, by Kimberly Harris: It’s getting chilly for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, and it’s the perfect time for hot bowls of soup. Kimi runs The Nourishing Gourmet blog, where she inspires with her gentle writing and accessible but healthy recipes.
Japanese Farm Food, by Nancy Singleton Hachisu: I’m fascinated by the author’s story, partly because of my own heritage. More to the point, the recipes look interesting, delicious, and fresh.
Heal Your Gut Cookbook, by Hilary Boynton and Mary G. Brackett: This cookbook breaks down the overwhelming GAPS diet into a multitude of stages with recipes for each stage, for a regiment that is rather hard to cook for. Add lovely photos, and this is one cookbook that I’ll want should I try GAPS again.
Preserving Wild Foods, by Matthew Weingarten and Raquel Pelzel: This cookbook combines two loves of mine, wild food and preserving. I love the idea of using the bounty around us (like dandelions!) to nourish ourselves.
I could go on, there are so many creative and beautiful cookbooks out there. What cookbooks are on your radar?
Go to The Book Depository and browse to see if they have any cookbook you would like (up to 30 euros/38 USD worth). Choose any you like, the ones I listed are just examples.
If you live outside the 90 countries with free shipping included, I’ll add the difference to ship it to you anyway.
This giveaway is sponsored by myself, on my own. I am an affiliate of The Book Depository, so if you buy any books through them I will get a small percentage, though it costs you the same.
