Menu for Hope 6 Winners Announced!

Menu for Hope 6 raffle winners have been announced here. This year we raised nearly $78,000 for the UN World Food Programme. Big thanks to all the folks who donated, as well as the bloggers and others who donated such fantastic bid items.

  • Congratulations to the Shana Worthen (EU39) who won the collection of two of my out-of-print cookbooks, plus an autographed copy of The Sweet Life of Paris.
  • And Armelle Deforge who won the Krups deep-fryer (EU42), offered in conjunction with Krups.
  • I scored, too! And several of my readers…(and French friends, and shopkeepers, and just about everyone else in Paris…) will be thrilled to know that I won a series of French classes.

    In the next several days, if you won a prize from another blog/website, you will receive a message on how to get in touch with the host of your prize, so sit tight. If you won one of the prizes above (EU39 and EU42), you can leave a comment with your e-mail address (which won’t be public), but will allow me to be in touch with you.

    For those of you who won the prizes below, please do the same and I will put you in touch with the vendor so you can get your prize:

  • Ginger Elizabeth Chocolate Collection (EU40): Judi Oe
  • Eight Baking Books from Ten Speed Press (EU41): Joseph Chernila
  • Askinosie Chocolate Baker’s Basket (EU44): Paula Scharf
  • Never miss a post!

      Bravo! It has to feel great to have done this, especially given the news from Haiti. Well done.

      EU40 – Do you think it might be me? and maybe the P in my last name was dropped off? or maybe I didn’t type it right?

      hi Judi: If you left your e-mail in the bidding field, you should be getting an e-mail from Menu for Hope directly, which will confirm it’s you. You should probably wait until you get it if you’re not sure.

      If it is you, I’ll will get you in touch with them to get your chocolates. I’m very jealous!
