Congratulations to Jeremy whom the Randomizer selected as the winner for this prize!!! A big “Thank You” to everyone who entered this giveaway! Thank you, too, to Anton Nocito and his publishers at for providing me with this cookbook and for allowing me to offer it to one of my readers in this giveaway.
Root Beer seems to be a favorite of most of the folks who entered this contest, which was interesting to me, as I don’t really like it, except as an ice cream float (aka “Brown Cow”). Sarsaparilla is one of the flavors that Anton makes, which is also a base taste in root beer. I’m a huge fan of his Concord Grape soda which makes its appearance briefly at this time of the year, when the grape harvest arrives in this area. I had a glass last week at the monthly New Amsterdam Market, which was the perfect way to kick off the day meandering around the vendors’ stalls, which I highly recommend the next time the market takes place the end of this month.
