April 2018 Cookbook Promotions Roundup


It's the first of the month and that means giveaway roundup time. As a reminder, we have tagged each promotion with the specific region to make them easily searchable. Once you have found your region's tag - bookmark that search and you will never have to scroll through the long giveaway list again. To further help, I have set out the tags below with links to the proper searches. Click on your country (or, of course, worldwide) and you will have a listing of giveaways available to you. (Remember to save that search to your favorites).

If you are having any difficulties with entering our giveaways, our how-to post should be able to steer you in the right direction. I am working hard on providing more worldwide entries but this all lies in the hands of our publishers. 

Please make sure you have entered all our giveaways, there are some exciting promotions coming up for great cookbooks and products such as:  Stargazer cast iron, Ruffoni, Emile Henry, Mauviel, Le Creuset, Anolon and Nordic Ware and I'm working on many more. What is better than a cookbook giveaway? A cookbook and cookware giveaway!
