Calling all chocoholics: Friday and Saturday, October 30 and 31, 2009, Fine Cooking is streaming live video from The Chocolate Show in New York City. We'll bring you cooking demos from the likes of Jacques Torres, François Payard, and our own contributing editor, Abigail Johnson Dodge. See below for the full schedule and view the kick off to the show with Abby Dodge.
Plus, we're giving away copies of our latest cookbook, Absolutely Chocolate. To be eligible for the drawing, just post a comment below; we'll randomly choose five winners at the end of each day. Learn more about the cookbook-and what our editors are dying to make from it-in our latest blog.
Friday's Update: Congratulations to our first handful of Absolutely Chocolate book winners: Jayeno, French_Cook, susanacampana, Jean, and Boscompb. Thanks for watching our coverage of the Chocolate Show and for posting a comment.
Saturday's Update: We've wrapped up our coverage of the Chocolate Show. Thanks for watching. Today's lucky book winners were mjmiller, sistarefuge007, mariocat, Carolyn2950, and MaryMcChocolate (gotta love the name). Congratulations, folks. Enjoy Absolutely Chocolate.
