Cookbook Giveaway - Mamma by Mina Holland and a Pasta Maker

Mamma: Reflections on the Food That Makes Us by Mina Holland is a charming narrative exploring how the food we ate as a child defines our taste buds as adults along with building our foundation as cooks.

For more information on this title, please see our review and recipe post

We are pleased to offer two copies of this title to our EYB Members worldwide. In addition, one member in the US can win a pasta maker along with a copy of the book.

I have an extra Atlas Italian pasta makers (US link) (UK link) and wanted to share one in this giveaway. I can only ship the pasta maker to continential US addresses due to shipping cost. My hope is that one of you will make homemade pasta memories with your children or grandchildren. 

One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post:

Which recipe from the index would you try first?

Please note that you must be logged into the Rafflecopter contest before posting or your entry won't be counted. If you are not already a Member, you can join at no cost. The contest ends at midnight on April 25, 2017
