Since I am back from Spain, it seems appropriate to do a giveaway of the cookbook PINTXOS: Small Plates in the Basque Tradition by local chef Gerald Hirigoyen of Piperade and Bocadillos. This book (from my wonderful publisher, Ten Speed Press) features 75 California-inflected versions of Spanish tapas and French Basque dishes specially written for the home cook.
I will be giving away three copies. tablehopper readers can enter to win by forwarding this week's tablehopper newsletter to two buddies, but even more would be so very fabulous. Just tell your friends why they would dig a subscription to the tablehopper e-column (not a blog!), or point out an event or happening that you think your friend would like. Simply CC or BCC luckyme [at] tablehopper.com so I know you sent it—I promise I won't use anyone's email address.
Deadline to enter is midnight Friday September 25th—I'll notify the winner over the weekend. ¡Buena suerte!
