Menu for Hope III - Raffle Prizes

I'm sure most of you are familiar with Menu for Hope - the wonderful fund raiser that was started a couple of years ago by Pim of Chez Pim. For the last two years Pim and tons of bloggers have raised money for very worthy causes with the Menu for Hope raffle. Last year, $17,000.00 was raised for Unicef! This year is the third year, and I am very pleased to be a part of it. All money raised this year is going to The United Nations World Food Programme, a very worth cause. I have two prizes up for the raffle:

ITEM 1:The first raffle item is called "Culinary Calgary to go" and contains a copy of The Best of City Palate - a collection of food essays, information, handy tips and of course some really wonderful recipes. This is paired with a bag of Bernard Callebaut Bittersweet Chocolate Drops - Bernard Callebaut makes some of the finest chocolate in the world, and has won the prestigious Grand Prix International Artisan Chocolatier award. Also included is a (hopefully) cute homemade apron AND 5 of my family's favorite recipes that so far I have not published on my blog INCLUDING my recipe for the best carrot cake in the world. I promise you would not be disappointed with any of these yummy dishes.
This is raffle prize number CA09.

My second raffle item is called "Bring Dorie Home With You" and will be familiar to all of you who read about or took part in the spotlight on Dorie Greenspan's book. The prize is a copy of Baking: From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan, and is autographed by Dorie especially for Menu for Hope! So if you missed out on the Spotlight, or if you took part but would love to give a copy to someone you love, this is the prize for you!
This is raffle prize number CA08.

So please, please, please, if you can purchase some tickets, ($10US each), go to the donation page here - Firstgiving - Menu for Hope III and make your donation. You can purchase raffle tickets for more than one item at a time - you can see the instructions and helpful hints here.

Thank you so much to Pim from Chez Pim and Jasmine from Confessions of a Cardamom Addict for asking me to take part as well as organizing this whole thing.
