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.
