Friday, September 18, 2015, will be the 7th anniversary of my book Hometown Appetites: The Story of Clementine Paddleford, the Forgotten Food Writer Who Chronicled How America Ate (Gotham).
Paddleford wrote a tribute to her mother, Jennie Paddleford, title A Flower For My Mother, in 1958.
To bring about awareness of Clementine Paddelford, and her work as a pioneer in food writing, I am hosting a holiday gift basket giveaway for USA newsletter subscribers only. One international newsletter subscriber will win a gift card of my choice and a printed or e-book copy of Hometown Appetites and a printed copy of A Flower For My Mother.
If you are not a subscriber to my newsletter and want to be entered into the holiday gift basket giveaway (USA) and the gift card & books giveaway (International), visit my website and opt-in.
The holiday gift basket will include a few products that Paddleford wrote about in her articles in This Week Magazine and The New York Herald Tribune, both now defunct.

Some of the gift basket items will come from the above list. Since Paddleford wrote about hundreds of products, there is no way to list them all on this blog post.
The gift basket value will be between $50 and $75 and will be sent to the winner to arrive in time for Christmas.
The international giveaway value will be between $50 and $75 and will be sent to the winner to arrive in early December.
The drawing will be held on December 1, 2015.
