BE MY VALENTINE (aka Take the Lunch in Paris/Le Creuset Valentine's Day Challenge)
In honor of the paperback launch of Lunch in Paris (that's today!!) and my favorite Hallmark holiday (oh, those chalky candy message hearts), I'm issuing a special Lunch in Paris Valentine's Day Challenge.
The prize: One cherry red Le Creuset 5.5 quart French Oven (courtesy of Le Creuset - Merci!), just dying to snuggle up on your stove.
Your mission (should you chose to accept it): Walk into your favorite bookstore, pick up a brand new paperback copy of Lunch in Paris and press it into the hands of first friendly browser (or cutest guy, or most stylin gal, or most hapless tourist) you see. You might even point out your favorite recipe. Then snap a photo together with this person and the book, and voila, upload it with a witty caption to the Lunch in Paris Facebook Page. Complete your entry by filling out this short entry form. Any coffee dates come out of this, I want to know. Any weddings come out of this, the cheese is on me!
Shy of strangers? Why not go with your best friends, dog, sister, husband or sock puppet and take a silly cancan photo with a copy of Lunch in Paris (costumes and/or berets get extra credit). You have until midnight on February 13th (anywhere in the world) to post. I'll chose the best photo and caption to win the Le Creuset 5.5 qt. Round French Oven in cherry (which, by the by, retails for $235). I"ll announce the winner on Valentine's Day. Now even cynical people who wear black on Feb. 14th (you know who you are), have something to look forward to...
