Food Cultures of the World Encyclopedia GIVEAWAY

HEY FOLKS!

The Monster four volume FOOD CULTURES OF THE WORLD ENCYCLOPEDIA is now in print. Seeing how most of you will not be likely to lay down $380 on amazon for this baby, and seeing how I have many copies taking up my dwindling office space, I thought I'd just give away a set. They weigh a ton - around 150 chapters, covers the whole world.

SO, the first person who can guess my favorite Spanish soup (I did happen to write the chapter on Spain) by 9 PM tomorrow will win the entire set. OK, no point in waiting until tonight!


*AND THE WINNER IS*

BiblicalFoods with the tenth answer - salmorejo cordobes - after only 20 minutes.
Congratulations! Those of you who guessed gazpacho were very close, but the correct answer was right there on page 27 of The Lost Art. It's a thicker much more interesting kind of gazpacho. BiblicalFoods please get back to me via email and tell me who you are!! and give me an address, because there was another correct answer from David Farris. I'll put the whole beast in the mail today if you can get back to me soon via kalbala at pacific dot edu.

UPDATE 10:47 PM: I have to say I would never have guessed in a million years that the winner is the dad of one of my favorite students, who I had the pleasure of meeting at a talk/book signing last summer. Maybe I talked about the soup! THAT worked out perfectly, huh?

salmorejo cordobes (thicker sibling of gazpacho)

Ooo I want to win just because it would cost an absolute freaking fortune to send them here... soooo, I once ate some sort of soup with an egg in it in Spain. That's my entry, that nice soup with an egg in it.

Cara said...

Sopa de ajo blanco?
Caldo Gallego?
Could go on and on.

Jodi said...

OK, my real guess would have been fabada asturiana, but that's been taken - so maybe cocido madrileno? or lentejas?

Lara @ GoodCookDoris said...

Sopa de ajo? Nice and garlicky with an egg on top.

Tripe soup? oh I would love that book...

Cynthia Bertelsen said...

Sopa de Pollo con Fideos

Liz Williams said...

My favorite Spanish soup is ajoblanco con uvas.

Margot said...

hm. since ajo blanco con uvas is taken...i will guess sopa de pastor manchego. which i guess is basically the same thing with ham. but what isn't better with ham? especially spanish ham.

Glenn said...

The creamy white gazpacho soup from your last cookbook--it IS pretty darned good.

ayeshadream said...

I'm likely too late, but Fabada Asturiana is my entry. It would make my year if I win this! :)
