The lucky winner of the giveaway is.....
First I need to clarify that I did not use random.org to select the winner because I got some comments by email and I needed to include them in the draw.
I therefore got my daughter, who has no interest whatsoever in the process, to draw a name from a large bowl.
So, the good news for Mise from Pretty Far West, is that you are the winner of the Elizabeth David book on Italian Food.
I think it is obvious this draw was not rigged, given I now have to post something to the far far west of Ireland. I am sure you are all interested in how much that will cost. I will tell you once My Assistant has calculated it. Mise please email me your address so I can begin this exercise!
The bad news is that Australia Post has this week called a snap Christmas strike, so delivery of the book May Be Some Time.
The winner of the most persuasive comment is James. I can assure you if I ever make it to the very deep South, which I will one day, I would love some pasta, Elizabeth David inspired or not, around that big wooden table.
