Le Creuset Thank You Giveaway!

by Cara Nicoletti on February 5, 2013

la cruset heart shaped dutch ovenLe Creuset Heart-Shaped 2 Quart Dutch Oven from The Brooklyn Kitchen

Okay people, I promised you I would do something great to thank you for all of your support. This is the first installment in a few awesomely spectacular thank you giveaways that I plan on doing, and I think it’s a pretty fantastic one. Here we go.

Listen, Valentine’s day is coming up, and Valentine’s day is a great day. Whether you are single or married or dating or whatever, there is a lot of chocolate involved in this holiday, so I think that it’s one we can all get behind. Le Creuset dutch ovens are classic and beautiful and they last forever and this one is hands down the cutest one I’ve ever seen. It’s the perfect size to make a romantic meal for two, or a towering, show-stopping chocolate or lemon souffle. If there was ever a piece of romantic cookware, one that says “I love you, you deserve this beautiful thing” more than it says “I hope that you will cook for me more often” this is it. It’s heart-shaped for cripes sake! I will also provide the winner with a few of my favorite dutch oven recipes! So here’s how this giveaway is going to work:

  • Like Yummy Books on Facebook for 1 entry
  • Follow along on Twitter for 1 entry 
  • Subscribe to Yummybooks for 1 entry

Leave a comment on this post letting me know what you did (when you leave a comment it requires you to enter your email address–only I can see this. Make sure it’s an email address that you actually use so that I can get in touch with you if you win!) If you already do any of the above things and you want that to count toward your entry let me know. Entries will close Sunday February 10th at midnight. 

Let’s do this!

Don't forget to follow along for updates:

If there’s a literary food scene you want to see come to life be sure to leave me a comment and let me know! Or take a peek in the Recipe Index.
