The Winners of the Guy Fieri Cookbook Are...

As promised, I wanted to announce the 2 winners of the Guy Fieri cookbook giveaway I hosted this week.  Even though not everyone had an opportunity to win, you sure contributed some creative entries about the most inventive comfort food you've ever had.

But without further ado, here are our 2 winners that were chosen by and their fabulous entries:

TechGuy426 who said: "Lobster and shrimp mac and cheese with 4 different cheeses...Mmmmm."


Amber who said: "Not at all inventive, but my favorite comfort food is my grandmother's scrambled eggs. There's just something about how she can get them perfectly fluffy and seasoned just so that has taken my entire adult life to master, and still I come up short. Thinking about them just reminds me of lazy summers as a kid when I would stay with my grandparents in the wooded suburbs. Unfortunately, my grandmother is no longer with us so I'll never know her secret to perfect eggs, but they'll always make me think of home."

What a lovely, sweet way to remember your grandmother, Amber. I'm sure she'd be proud of your creation.

And here were our other lovely entries:

Justin said: "Chorizo Corned Beef Hash at MexiQ in Astoria. Amazing!"

Lauren said: "Deep fried turkey with grilled corn on the cob (with cheese melted on top!) and yellow rice...comfort food summertime style, can't go wrong!"

suburban prep said: "I had a combination of Mexican and Chinese food.
It was a bit unusual."

Kimberly said: "Shrimp + grits paired with she-crab soup (made w/ brandy--yum!) down in Charleston, that low-country cooking!"

amuse*bouche said: "The "leftover fried chicken at WD-50 was outrageously delicious and original. Layers of various chicken filets have been pressed into a terrine, before being cooked sous vide, and then chilled again. The cold fried chicken is then topped with dollops of buttermilk whipped into a ricotta, almost like cool mashed potatoes. Teardrops of tabasco honey add a bit of heat, and shiny mounds of sturgeon caviar remind you just how far from leftover fried chicken this brilliant dish actually aspires. Crispy fried chicken skin and chervil were the perfect garnishes."

Sharon said: "Gumbo with chicken and andouille, sandwiches."

Thank you to everyone who participated. I will be in touch with the winners about claiming their prizes.  Congratulations!

I hope you enjoy your Guy Fieri Food cookbook. 

For those of you who didn't win this time, you can purchase the book here and try your luck again in my upcoming giveaways.
