The Wreath Recipe Book Giveaway!

Written by
Floret

wreathrecipeWell, the ladies at Studio Choo have done it yet again!  Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo’s most recent book, The Wreath Recipe Book, is every bit as drool-worthy as their first volume: The Flower Recipe Book which was published in 2013.  I absolutely adore the gorgeous photos and recipe format and especially love the special attention they give in both volumes to using seasonal floral material.

I sat down to chat with these ladies a few months back as part of the Farmer and the {Florist} interview series.  Today I’m happy to give away one copy of their Wreath Recipe Book to one lucky blog reader.  To enter, simply add a comment below. In your comment, please share your favorite recipe book, be it for food, flowers, or otherwise!

UPDATE: Giveaway now closed.  CONGRATS to Jennifer Ann for winning this beautiful book!

    Wonderful giveaway! I have already borrowed this one from the library and had to renew it twice. Owning it would be much more efficient. Non-food “cookbooks” are such an exciting concept. As for food tomes, I am enamored of Nigel Slater’s “Tender,” an ode to garden as much as plate, Madhur Jaffrey’s “World Vegetarian,” and am looking forward to adventuring through Becky Selengut’s “Shroom.”

    My most used cookbooks over the years are the ‘Better Homes & Garden Cookbook’ for instructions and recipes for cooking and baking and the VictoryGarden Cookbook by Marion Morash. The Victory Garden cookbook has a wealth of information for growing, harvesting and tons of recipes for cooking fresh vegetables. I would love to add the wreath recipe book to my collection!

    This is not a recipe in the traditional since, but my favorite floral recipe is driving around in the country and alleys around my hometown. Blaring music my husband doesn’t like to listen to and pulling flowers, vines, and even dare I say it “weeds”. Bringing them home in the front seat of my car to create something special for my dinner table on a Thursday!

    I would love to have this book.I’d pick The Joy of Cooking because in it are treasures I cherish – my grandma’s recipes on scraps of paper written in her own longhand – cocoa applesauce cupcakes, pickles, potato pancakes, cherrry pie…..recipes from the time of Victory Gardens, that have been tucked away since the 1940’s.

    Watching Floret grow is helping me to act on my flower dreams too! Thanks for sharing.

    Sunset’s Favorite recipe books are the ones I keep going back to for recipes with fresh seasonal food. Granted they have a California flair which speaks to my roots.

    This looks yummy. Every year I hope to capture some of our post-season goodness in wreaths but somehow fall short. In the world of recipes and recipe books, I’m a fan of the educative bent of all things Cooks Illustrasted, which are perhaps akin to Floret’s approach to your blog and floral writings in their sharing of plenty of tips and other tasty morsels of knowledge to create not just one dish/bouquet/crop but rather to inform one’s approach to cooking/growing more broadly. Keep up the great work and thanks for so much inspiration. And beauty!

    I would love to know more about wreath-making! I love having fresh flowers in my home, but the thought of a beautiful wreath greeting me when I come in the door is cheering me up quite a bit, on this rainy spring day in Indiana. One of my all-time favorite books is Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison. It is invaluable during Farmer’s Market season, when I can grab some new and delicious veggies from the market and then create a delicious meal from her book.

    My never-fail-go-to cookbook is the Cooks Illustrated cookbook, hands down! This wreath recipe book looks beautiful!

    My favorite recipe book is a complication of gardening (flowers, fruits and veggies) and recipes from my grandma. We copied her recipes to retain her beautiful handwriting and bound the book together with photos of some of her pressed flowers. It’s not in anyone’s best seller list but mine, but it is the most special recipe book I’ve ever come across. Many of the recipes are also written in French, which makes them a bit more magical!

    Currently my favorite is Huckleberry from Zoe Nathan. I love the humor of the book and everything I’ve made from it is delicious and the pictures are gorgeous.

    The first book I had as a teenager was “Cookies” by Williams-Sonoma. Now that I am 29 years old, it still figures as my favorite. I have baked so many cookies, that I became an expert with the most delicious desserts. My own invention: Chai cookies.
    I am a big fan of flowers and foliage, and devoted florist. Can’t wait to have this book!

    Ah! I checked this out from the library the minute the forsythia came out! Haha. It’s so beautiful (and super easy to follow).

    I am partial to Nigella Lawson’s cookbooks, even though I’m a vegetarian. The photos are beautiful and her wiring is so evocative. Plus the desserts (How to Be A Domestic Goddess) are so decadent. Ugh. So good.

    My favorite book is my family recipe book that is falling apart at the seams. There is something undeniably comforting about a recipe that has been used over a span of 3 generations.

    My 2 favorite recipe books are Marcella Hazan; the classic Italian cookbook and Irene Kuo; the key to chinese cooking. Both emphasize the importance of quality ingredients, traditional methods and clarity of flavors. I feel like the studio choo books do the same just with flowers instead of food!

    Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I love that this cookbook has been used for many generations and includes a lot of really basic recipes. I am not one to follow a recipe, but this gives a good outline and from there i can be creative usually depending on what i have on hand. Sort of like flowers.. using what you have available.

    This flower recipe book looks amazing! My favorite recipe book in the past has been the “Portland Cookbook: Cook Like A Local,” primarily because it had some really great produce recipes.

      Oh! My favourite recipe book is ‘Bread & Wine’ by Shauna Niequist. The book not only provides a series of delicious recipes but also provides the reader with motivation to make life around the table so important.

      One of my favorite recipe books is the “Flower recipe” one! But I’m also partial to my family’s handmedown “caughman cookbook” that holds generations of family stories and food recipes!
