Giveaway! The Illustrated Wild Foods Recipe Calendar!



After falling so in love with the art and recipes in The Illustrated Wild Foods Recipe Calendar, I contacted the creator, Christina of Nettletown and Foraged & Found Edibles to see if she'd be interested in doing a calendar giveaway through my blog.  Whatever I said - it worked!



I first discovered Foraged and Found without realizing it- when I bought fiddleheads from them this past spring.  I came across Christina's blog about a month and a half ago, via Fat of the Land and instantly fell in love.  I bought three copies of her calendar right away.  She and her partner sell their calendars and foraged foods at the Sunday farmers market in my neighborhood, and she also sells via her Etsy store.  I do sound a bit like a creepy secret stalker, considering that we've never actually met!



The calendar features 18 recipes, 12 different foraged foods (native to Washington), and gorgeous illustrations by Emily Counts for each month.  Mine is going up in my kitchen, where I will hopefully be able to avoid sloshing food and dirty dish water all over it! 



If you're interested in winning yourself or someone else a copy of this lovely, lovely calendar- all you need to do is comment on this entry- telling me where you'd hang it!  I will randomly pick a winner next Tuesday, December 22nd around 3PM Seattle (Pacific Standard) time, and announce it here.  You should be able to comment via your Google account- unregistered users please be sure to use your real name.  Also, please be sure to check out The Illustrated Wild Foods Recipe Calendar Fan Club on Facebook!

zomg, it's so gorgeous! That should be framed. Though it would be hard to advance to new months if it were framed. It would have to go somewhere in the kitchen on a wall to itself to be admired, and used! Wow, that's really REALLY pretty.

hah my word verification is nosess. Not sure why I'm amused by that!

Hi I found your blog in a google recipe search! I stole your cranberry muffin with whiskey frosting recipe. I would hang this calendar in my stepdaughters communal house in Olympia where she is going to college.

I personally believe that US americans are unable to do so because uh some people out there in our nation don't have calendars and i believe that our calendars like such as south africa an uh the Iraq everywhere like such as and I believe that they should our education over here in the US er uh should help south africa and should help iraq and the asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for our children.....yes, I'd hang it in the kitchen.

I would hang it in my kitchen, so that I can see it as I'm making something from one of the recipes! Also, Jonathan and I need a calendar in a centrally-hung place so that we know what's going on scheduling-wise.

Max said...

in my office so everyone can see.

I would hang this kitchen calendar on the perforated board that holds all my pots and pans by little hooks.
