Giveaway: $500 Le Creuset Package + Book Tour Details

Monday, September 30, 2013


To celebrate the nearing release of Melt: the Art of Macaroni and Cheese, we are giving away a $500 set of Le Creuset cookware and a $100 gift certificate for Murray's, the premier online retailer for artisan cheese. One lucky winner will receive the following pieces, making it the ultimate set for creating all the macaroni and cheese dishes in the book:

  • 4 1/2-qt round French oven 
  • 3 3/4-quart deep covered sauté pan 
  • 3 3/4-quart oval stoneware baking dish 
  • One set of four oval mini-cocottes 
  • Plus a $100 gift card for Murray's online cheese shop 

To complete your entry, email us at info@meltmacaroni.com or leave a comment. That's it! Boom! You're done!

This contest is now closed. 

Of course, the best way to enjoy all these cookware and cheesey goodness is with mac and cheese. If you haven't pre-ordered then we hope you will!
One winner will be selected and announced on the book's release date, October 22. For other details and legal what-have-you, please refer to the official content rules.

We also have an initial book tour list up. This list isn't complete as is only the West Coast, but East Coast and Central U.S. events will be added as we plan them. Many events have links to the event details.

  21. Been teaching grandson (he's 8) how to cook on the days he's here with me after school. He just requested to learn how to make "real" mac and cheese. I can do basic but he likes to experiment so it looks like we need the book. Hope to see you in Portland!

  22. Mac n Chee is my kryptonite. I asked my family to pre-order your book for me for Christmas. I'd love the cookware (but don't need it if I don't get it.) I just wanted to tell you you're awesome.

    ReplyDelete

  26. Looking forward to this book, we are lovers of cheese... and since I generally suck at making mac and cheese, this is pretty much a must have. As a side - your Apricot and Riesling jam (in my house it's Peach and Riesling) is an annual must make. Thank you for that recipe - it has made so many people happy!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Bring on the cheese! I am so excited to get your book! I have it preordered. Now it's just hurry up and wait! And what a "wonderful" time of year in the Midwest to get a book full of nummy mac and cheese--winter! At least that's what it feels like in South Dakota right now. :-(

    I saw this on another Paleo-centric blog so I'm so happy you're doing it too! I'm in serious love with the orange set. Plus, I really want some quality dutch ovens and pans now that I'm hunkering down for a great season of comfort food and knitting.

    I also really want your book even though I don't eat cheese or pasta... guilty pleasures and all. Hah
