Giveaway: Green Mango Cafe Cookbook! + Gift Ideas

There’s just a few days until Christmas now — how the season flies! In the spirit of holiday giving, we wanted to give back to you, our readers. We are SO grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement over the past few years.

One of the biggest areas of your support has been through our benefit cookbook — thank you so much for your interest in this vocational training program in Cambodia! Your support of the project has been amazing.

We’re so excited to give away a cookbook to one lucky reader!  Just leave a comment on this post. (For more about the cookbook and our trip to Cambodia, click here.)

Thanks again to Annie’s Eats, Pinch of Yum, Naturally Ella, and The Fig Tree for their contributions of photos and recipe testing for this effort!


Also, if you’re still looking for some Christmas gifts, here are a few fun gift ideas from some wonderfully talented friends:

Gifts for the Kitchen from Love and Lemons
Cookbook Gift Guide from Cookie + Kate (we love The Sprouted Kitchen Cookbook from the super talented Sara and Hugh)
Amazing Charity Giveaway at Annie’s Eats
Cowls from Faux Martha (I can’t get enough of mine!)

Happy Holidays!



Congrats to Gloria for winning this contest!

The Rules: One entry per person, U.S. residents AND International residents (we’ll send an e-book if you are an international resident). Commenting will close on Friday, December 21, 2012 at 12:00 pm, EST. Make sure to provide your email address in the comment form (we promise to keep it confidential!). One winner will be chosen at random and announced on Saturday, December 22.

    I know I am late to the contest and that is fine as I would like to buy a book and support this wonderful cause.

    Can you only order through google? Is there another way to pay ie paypal. Just not sure I want to sign up for anything new. I will if that is the only way to get the book.

    I am in Canada. Thank you!

      Hi Maureen! Thanks for your interest in the book! Google is the only payment option at this time – the ordering is all through CGI, and that’s what they have set up at this point. Sorry! Hopefully that’s OK with you for now — thanks for willing to be flexible! :)
