Alinea and Bits, (three) more prizes you won't want to miss

Mfh4roundedsmallHere are two three more prizes I'm adding today that you really don't want to miss.

UC30: A unique package from Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas of Alinea, including two early proofs - framing quality prints - of the Alinea book's recipe pages, one copy of signed, limited edition book (on release in Fall '08), and early access to the Alinea Mosaic site in May '08

Over 1 year in the making, the Alinea book will contain over 100 dishes with hundreds of recipes, over 500 photographs shot on site, and essays by such illustrious names as Jeffrey Steingarten, Michael Ruhlman, Mark McClusky, and Michael Nagrant. Graphic design and layout of the book are now in their final stages. Alineaproofsquab_2The book will be released by 10 Speed Press in the Fall of 2008.

This package (UC30) includes two early proofs of recipe pages from the book signed by chef Grant Achatz, designer Martin Kastner, and photographer Lara Kastner, which will likely NOT be used in the final book and so will be one-off prints from the early design work. The lucky winner will also recieve a signed, limited edition copy of the Alinea book to be shipped in the Fall of 2008, plus early access to the Alinea Mosaic web site which will launch in May.

Chris_2 UW37: Chris Cosentino will take you to lunch on delectable bits at his favorite secret offal restaurant in San Francisco, plus a Lips and Assholes t-shirt.

If you're a fan of The Next Iron Chef, or Chris's lovely restaurant Incanto, or his blog Offal Good, you might want to get a few raffle tickets for this special prize. With a bit of luck, you'll get to hang out with Chris over lunch of bits and bobs at his favorite offal restaurant in San Francisco. He'll even give you one of his super fabulous Lips and Assholes t-shirt in the size guaranteed to fit your very own bits.

Ruhlman And, speaking of bits, I hope you guys noticed that the prize Michael Ruhlman so kindly offered for Menu for Hope 4 on his blog is not just a personally signed copy of his book, the Elements of Cooking - which alone would have been a great prize - but he also added a special deal, for the lucky winner who could and would get themselves to Cleveland, to share a meal of pigs' ears and Great Lakes dortmunder at Lolita! Michae's prize code is UE43.

Go on. Donate and get a few tickets for these chances of a lifetime!
