Year of the Horse Giveaway!

20140130-092929.jpg

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Horse, and we’re celebrating with another giveaway!

When it comes to stir-frying the ingredient prep is just as important as there actual cooking, and one of the most important tools in food prep is a good cutting board. The folks at Bambu have kindly donated a 15 x 11 bamboo cutting board for our Year of the Horse Giveaway! They’re boards are handcrafted and sustainably harvested, and will last for years. I have two Bambu cutting boards and believe me when I say that they hold up against a lot of abuse!

To all enter all you have to do is leave a comment below answering the following question:

What has been your favorite dish you’ve made from “Stir-Frying to the Sky’s Edge”? OR, if you’ve just joined, what dish are you most looking forward to making?

We’ll accept entries throughout the whole 15 day celebration of the Year of the Horse, so you have until 11:59pm EST on February 14th to enter! A winner will be chosen at random from the responses, one response per person please.

Good luck, and happy Year of the Horse!
