First, some exciting news. Foodista and Andrews McMeel Publishing have just released the Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook, and Savour Fare is one of the featured contributors. To celebrate the release, Foodista is hosting a contest – if you buy the book on Amazon between 10 and 11 am PDT on November 3 and send your purchase confirmation to Foodista, you will be entered into a drawing to win a bunch of great prizes, including an Amazon gift card. Details of the Foodista contest can be found here.
Second, now that Halloween is out of the way, thoughts of cooks turn to Thanksgiving. If you’re planning your holiday menu early, look through the recipes tagged Thanksgiving for great ideas on side dishes, alternative main courses, cocktails, desserts, and even The Best Roast Turkey. I’ll also be posting some great Thanksgiving ideas in the next few weeks, so watch this space. I’ll also be posting some recipes for great homemade food gifts, some of which need advance timing.
It’s my favorite time of year — can you tell?
Finally, I know the word is still verboten to many of you, but Christmas is coming before you know it. If you want to make a traditional Fruitcake (and you should want to make it — really!) you want to start thinking about it now so it has plenty of time to cure in liquor before Christmas.
