Winner!

fig and port wine blintzes from THE NEW JEWISH TABLE

Chavie Hagler is the winner of THE NEW JEWISH TABLE cookbook!

Luckily, she checked her e-mail early on May 7 and I promptly popped her copy of the book in the mail to her with plenty of time for her to receive it before Mother’s Day.

I wonder if she is sharing it with some lucky Mama or keeping it for herself??

Her secret is safe with me….
