Updated with new prizes!
Our West Coast host Matt of Matt Bites had this to say about this prize.
"You’re bidding on a two-day workshop in Los Angeles, California. In
this 2-day seminar you’ll learn about styling, plating and garnishing
breakfast foods as well as working with real ice cream and frozen
desserts. Although this is a level 2 class offered by Denise I’m more
than positive you’ll get so much from this workshop. And if you’re a
food blogger chances are you have some experience with getting food on
your plate to look good already. Please note that this is a new
curriculum not offered before so it’s extra exciting! To top it all
off I’ll be there the entire time taking pictures of the class and
working with you on the photo aspect of it all." From Mattbites and the amazing Denise Vivaldo of Food Fantatics
Again from Matt, "The amazing folks at O Olive Oil have donated
again this year to Menu Of Hope and I’m pleased to offer their two
gifts here. What you’re bidding on is an O Olive Oil Butler Tray
complete with an assortment of oils and vinegars. But not just ANY oil
and vinegar. As you may know I’m obsessed with everything they do
because they are all about quality and flavor. Not to mention amazing
wonderfully gracious guys. These Butler Trays can go for a lot and make
the best gifts but of course I wouldn’t fault you if you kept them for
yourself. I promise to look the other way. "

From Lara Ferroni of Cook & Eat. Here’s what Lara says: When I found out I was taking photos for a book on cookbook entirely based on popcorn, I was a little stunned. I tried to think of even 10 recipes, and came up short. But after shooting over 20 different recipes for this popcorn book (which contains over 60 recipes), not only was I not sick of popcorn, I had an entirely new appreciation for the treat. Here are a few ideas: popcorn s’mores! popcorn bananas foster! Gorgonzola and Green Onion! Popcorn Shrimp with popcorn in the batter! I’ve pulled together this simple popcorn package to let you share in some my new discoveries. This kit includes: 16 oz. of premium white popcorn 1 oz. asiago and cracked black pepper seasoning 1.6 oz. tangy dill and garden herb seasoning 1.8 oz. sweet and salty kettle corn seasoning a small jar of my homemade zhatar mix 4 oz. grapeseed oil sprizter 8.45 oz Urbani White Truffle Oil A copy of Popcorn One large bright red popcorn bowl
