One day just isn't enough, so we're celebrating Earth Day all week long with recipe slideshows, a Facebook chat, and a cookbook/cookware set giveaway.
As part of that celebration, we're pleased, and quite proud too, to announce that our publisher, The Taunton Press, has joined forces with the Chefs Collaborative--a national network of chefs, food professionals, and producers--on The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook: Local, Sustainable, Delicious Recipes from America's Greatest Chefs.
North Carolina based-chef, Jay Pierce, a member of the collaborative, will host an Earth Day Facebook chat on Fine Cooking's Facebook page Monday from 3-4 EDT.
And since the best celebrations include presents, one lucky reader will get an Anolon cookware set and a copy of The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook for our Earth Day Giveaway. The grand prize is worth more than $300. Five second place winners will recieve a copy of The Chefs Collaborative Cookbook. Visit our Facebook page to enter.
Not on Facebook? That's OK. You can still enter to win by leaving a comment below.
