One Perfect Ingredient – THE COMPETITION

Perfect ingredients

One perfect ingredient, many ways to cook it

One competition, 5 LUCKY WINNERS!


As promised, here comes your chance to win Marcus’ new book!!!

Focusing on one ingredient at a time, Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing presents at least three imaginative, delicious but simple ways of cooking with it, offering a wealth of fresh ideas on how to use the everyday ingredients that repeatedly show up in your shopping basket. (…. Read the rest of the review and find out more about Marcus’ new book here.)

To win the book, all you have to do is tell us about your favourite ingredient, including why it’s your favourite and what is your favourite way of cooking it. Post a recipe using this ingredient, and preferably some photos, containing a link to this event and the words ‘One Perfect Ingredient’. Preferably, your ingredient will be the main ingredient in the meal or feature strongly in the dish, and it can fall within one of these categories: Vegetables, Fish and shellfish, Meat, Dairy and eggs, Fruit and Store cupboard (e.g. chocolate, pasta, couscous, rice, legumes, etc.). If you wish, you may post more then one recipe! You’re also welcome to submit more than one entry!

Non-bloggers are also welcome! E-mail me your photos and recipes, and I’ll post them on my blog for you!

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately, the shipping of the award is restricted to UK and Europe only, as DK have said they will post the book only to European and UK addresses. I’m sorry about that. Importantly, even if you are not in Europe, you can still take part, but the prize will be sent to a European address of your choice, if you win.

To take part and win Marcus’ book, please send an e-mail to maninas [DOT] wordpress [AT] yahoo [DOT[ co [DOT] uk including the following information

  • your name and country
  • name of your blog
  • link to your blog
  • name of your post
  • link to your post
  • one photograph
  • with ‘One Perfect Ingredient’ in the subject line of your e-mail

Please submit a post specifically written for this event,  and please do not submit this post to other blogging events; one exception are photography events such as  Does My Blog Look Good in This.

The deadline for this event is 7th April 2008.

During the following week, I will post a round-up of all posts on my blog, and draw the winners! My method? Easy peasy! Writing all names on a piece of paper, putting them in a bowl, and drawing the 5 lucky winners! After that, I will e-mail you to ask you for your addresses, and send them to the publisher, Dorling Kindersley, who will post the book to you!
