Shun Knife Giveaway! (closed)

November 28, 2011
If you’ve been an Espresso and Cream reader for a while, then you may have noticed that giveaways have been a little sparse around here lately. I think the last giveaway I did was back during the beginning of October. I’ve been a little bit busy, sure, but the real reason I’ve been holding back on the giveaways is because I wanted to make December’s giveaway something really special.
When I turned 18 my mom gave me the best gift a food-loving high school senior could get, my first real knives. Although I’m sure there were a few people who thought it was a strange gift, I was overjoyed. I still remember going to Williams-Sonoma with my mom to pick out the perfect knives to start my collection. Of trying to be terribly ‘grown up’ and pretending I actually knew what in the world I was talking about. I’m still not entirely sure I know what I’m talking about sometimes, but I do know how much I love my Shun knives, even to this day.
So today, as we kick off the Christmas season of gift-giving, I wanted to give one of you a gift as a token of appreciation for being awesome, for reading Espresso and Cream, and for making being a part of this food community such a wonderful experience.
In order to do it up big, I’m giving away a Shun Classic 7 1/2″ Double Hollow-Ground Sumo Santoku knife (pictured above). To enter, leave a comment below between now and November 30th at 9 p.m. letting me know what you are thankful for this holiday season.

    Around this time of year, when life gets hectic, I always slow down and realize how grateful I am to have my health, a large family full of love, and to be surrounded by friends. Most importantly, I'm so grateful to have met the love of my life, and wake up beside him every morning. Life is sweet!!!! xoxo
