Loving Britain Giveaway

It is giveaway time here again on Lemon Drop.  This one is very special for me.  You see, I love, I mean LOVE Britain.  I have wonderful friends there, the countryside is to die for  and the food - oh  my, the food.  Think Eccles Cakes, Victoria Sponge, creamy and rich Custard Sauce, Bakewell Tarts, Chelsea Buns.  I am drooling as I write this.

So in honor of my love of Britain, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Year and London 2012,  I am offering you, my sweet followers, a chance to win an amazing cookbook COOKING BRITAIN.

This glossy book is fantastic.  It is filled with incredible recipes from England, Scotland and Ireland. There are savory and sweet recipes peppered throughout along with some delectable food photography.   Absolutely mouth-watering.

My fave part of the book though are the tidbits of history for the featured foods.  Want to learn the origin of the Bakewell Tart?  Or how a Lardy Cake came to be? It's all right here.

The "food dictionary" at the back of the book is also heaven-sent.  Not sure what a Bramley apple or know what it is but cannot find it locally? Then head to the back of the book where you will find a description of the item as well as substitute recommendations. For us non-Brits this is essential.

Now you will need to act fast if you want to participate. This giveaway closes at 11 PM next Saturday, July 28th.   Just follow the steps outlined below for your chance to win!
