I promised to deliver this before the new year and I did! Okay, so it was down to the wire but it’s here at last!
I held a sandwich contest this year and asked readers to submit sandwich recipes inspired by silent stars. I knew the recipes and research would be good but I was completely flabbergasted by the care and brilliance poured into these recipes and essays.
I have gathered the finalists together in this free PDF download and I hope you enjoy reading them and preparing these tasty treats.
That being said, I probably will not be holding another cooking contest. I severely underestimated the amount of work involved and my life kind of collapsed mid-contest. (Not because of the contest, of course, but circumstances beyond anyone’s control.) For much of this year, I’ve had trouble keeping my head above water with just daily posts. So, the point is, this cookbook is late and I apologize.
But I do have another cooking-related event coming soon! I felt out the response on Twitter and everyone seemed to like the idea of a silent movie cookalong. I will publish details in January but I already have recipes selected and some glorious giveaways lined up. And, yes, most of these items will be deliverable worldwide, not just to North America. Yay!
Please enjoy the cookbook and be sure to read the mini essays (and especially the fabulous not-so-mini essay on Egyptian cinema).
