Camemberu turns five today! To celebrate the blog's fifth anniversary, I am giving out Tony Khoo's "To Be A Chef" cookbook (two copies) and a bottle of Legras & Haas champagne!
UPDATE: The winners have been picked! I will be in touch for prize collection.
- Congratulations to Hovkonditorn and TravelingFoodies for winning Tony Khoo's cookbook!
- Congratulations also to Byron Shoh for winning the Legras & Haas champagne!
Yeah, it's been half a decade - five full years of documenting deliciousness. Along the way, I have learned so much, and learned that I have much more to learn! I'm grateful for all the wonderful people I have met, the friends I've made, and the experiences not otherwise possible.
This almost obsessive passion of mine does mean I have been sitting down in front of my Mac for way too many hours - writing and editing photos. It's just too easy to choose gazing at food photos over getting up to exercise. I recently restarted my yoga and realised I am more unfit than when I first started doing it years ago. My little Jolie will promptly put me to shame by easily taking up the positions I am struggling to do.
Ironically, I have lost 10kg in the past five years, not deliberately but through other circumstances. Now if I can just lose another 5kg, that would be awesome. It never works when you deliberately try, though, in my experience. Well, I'll just focus on getting fit.
Anyway, back to the giveaway prizes!
Tony Khoo has a very interesting life story, which I profiled on Makanation. He is the Executive Chef of Marina Mandarin Hotel with over 35 years experience. His cookbook is out now, available at ToTT (896 Dunearn Road). It's a beautiful volume, and the recipes are bound to inspire budding cooks and fellow chefs.
What better way to celebrate than with bubbly, right? The Legras & Haas champagne was kindly given by Lollapalooza (they specialise in bringing in wines and champagnes from unique producers that they personally visit and get to know) - I have a post on pairing champagne with Chinese food coming up soon.
I am popping a bottle myself for my own birthday later tonight!
How to win the cookbooks and champagne? Just leave me a comment on the blog for the cookbook, and leave me a comment on my Facebook fanpage for the champagne. Of course, you can go for both, if you like! I will pick winners randomly, so everyone has a fair chance.
You have until noon of 8th May, 2012. Happy commenting and thanks for reading my blog, some for all these years too!
