October 2nd, 2009 · Tags: Blog Event

Here are the 2nd and 3rd place winners for the 2nd Annual O Foods for Ovarian Cancer Awareness contest! We wish we could have given a prize to everyone.

Make sure you check out all the great recipes at the roundup:

And be sure to find out who won the Grand Prize and Awareness prizes at Bleeding Espresso!

Gina De Palma took some time out of her busy pastry chef life at Babbo to pick the winners that will receive the signed copies of these great cook books! I’ve included her words here, because I think they are great!

Winner of the signed Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes to Cook at Home by Mario Batali:

“The Orange and Tomato Rasam [Lavanya at Pieces of paper, squiggly lines] is captivating.  I can’t stop reading this recipe over and over and over again.  I love Indian food so much and this is exactly the kind of transportive recipe I adore, that takes me entirely out of my cooking comfort zone and into another culture…”

Congrats Lavanya at Pieces of paper, squiggly lines!

And the winner of the signed copy of Vino Italiano: The Regional Italian Wines of Italy by Joseph Bastianich :

“The Empanadillas chock full of Olives [Nuria at Spanish Recipes] look absolutely awesome. A fried pocket stuffed full of things I love to eat anyway….drool, drool.

I feel bad because I didn’t pick anything healthy or baked…I can’t help it, the heart wants what it wants.”

We want, too, Gina! Don’t feel bad! :)

Congrats Nuria at Spanish Recipes!

Thanks so much to everyone who participated, and remember you can still donate to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund at our Firstgiving donation page! We need to raise awareness year round, so anytime you see a chance to raise ovarian cancer awareness, please take it! Women everywhere will thank you.

Thanks to all participants!
