Even though I have abandoned my cookbooks and hard copy recipes for Pinterest, I knew this was one of John Herbik's (president of The Eat Guide) dreams -- to publish a cookbook of regional restaurants with proceeds benefitting local charities. Sarah was the best choice to narrate and tell the stories of regional restaurants.
The cookbook, Sizzle & Buzz, captures stories (written from my dear friend Sarah), recipes, tips and tricks from acclaimed kitchens in Seattle, Portland and Bend and also features full-color photography, exclusive stories from 50+ restaurants.
Each Tuesday, I work on my blog outside of the home and over the past couple of months; Sarah has joined me, working hard on the copy. If you're a company looking for an awesome freelance marketer, Sarah is for hire! She is a writer, marketing professional and owner of a hyper-local social network for mothers in Bend, Oregon. She specializes in copywriting, blogging, social media and publicity.
This is the first cookbook where I've read every story and learned some amazing facts about our local dining scene in Central Oregon. I was also happy to discover that Cafe Sintra also gave out the recipe for their Portuguese Stew. That along is worth spending $20.
Here's a little teaser from their press release: The recipes, from The Blackstone at Chow in Bend to Spiced Delicata Squash at Poppy in Seattle to Duck Confit at Wildwood in Portland, are approachable and exciting to cooks of all levels and tastes. Readers will learn not only how to make the dishes, but also tips directly from the chefs that will help them grow in the kitchen and have fun while doing it.A portion of the Sizzle & Buzz proceeds will go to the Hunger Prevention Coalition of Central Oregon along with charities in Portland Seattle.
The Eat Guide graciously gave me a copy of Sizzle and Buzz to giveaway! You have until December 11 at 7 am to enter below with many chances for entry (SEE BELOW).
If you don't win, you can order Sizzle and Buzz online or stop by Tim Garling's Jackalope Grill where they are giving all proceeds of the sale of the cookbooks to the Hunger Prevention Coalition of Central Oregon.
