menuforhopeIt’s Menu for Hope time again!  Menu for Hope is an annual food blogging fundraising event that takes the form of a gigantic raffle of fabulous foodie prizes.  You can read more about this year’s Menu for Hope and see the full prize list over at the site of the events creator, Pim.  This year’s regional Europe host is Sara of Ms. Adventures In Italy.

This year I’m pleased to be able to join in the fun, offering a prize of books for vegetable lovers.  This set of three books on cooking with fresh, seasonal produce is perfect for somebody with a regular veg box delivery, CSA membership or just anyone keen to fill their diet with veggies in the New Year!  These books are three tried and tested personal favourites, the books we turn to in our house for both regular weekday dinners and cooking for friends.  With these three on your shelves you should be well equipped to rustle up something amazing up from any vegetable you might encounter. 

Prize details (for prize code EU22)
The Veg lovers book collection prize consists of the following three books, worth £60 in total:

The Garden CookbookSarah Raven’s Garden Cookbok
A gorgeous cookbook and also a thing of beauty in its own right with its beautiful photography and multiple rainbow book ribbons (read more about the book on amazon).

Abel and Cole cookbookThe Abel and Cole Cookbook: Easy, Seasonal, Organic
Just the most relaxed book on cooking with seasonal produce from Keith Abel, founder of one of the UKs top veg box schemes.  One for those of you who prefer to work in splashes and mugfulls, not grams or ounces.  (read more about the book on amazon)

Riverford Farm cookbookRiverford Farm Cook Book: Tales from the Fields, Recipes from the Kitchen
This book is new to me but already a firm favourite. Full of fuss-free, easy recipes from Riverford Farm, another top box scheme provider (read more about the book on amazon).

I’ve just bought four raffle tickets – one of them for your prize!
I’m involved in a similar fundraiser called Passports with Purpose to raise money for Heifer International via my travel blog http://www.roamingtales.com.

Sophie, what desirable and generous prizes. All these books are new to me and look wonderful. Menu for Hope is also new to me.
I’ll be buying at least one ticket — one guess which prize code I will choose first.
