Notice anything different ’round here? Outlander Kitchen has a new look!
The switchover wasn’t quite as smooth as planned, and I’ll have to keep working to fix all of the photos over the next week…most of them are there, but they’re not showing up, depending on your browser. The good news is that all the recipes are where they should be, and the recipe index is working just fine — it’s just the window dressing that I’m having a few problems with, aye?
The changes aren’t quite finished, but we’re going ahead with the giveaway anyway — life goes on, and I have a schedule — it’s nearing the end of March! There’s prep to be done if our tables are to be stacked with food for friends on the Starz premiere night (whenever that might be, but I’m hoping for August, because I just can’t see how it will be much before that. TV production has a schedule too, after all.)
Giveaways are all the rage right now in Outlanderville, and it’s time OK got back in the game. I’ve got a couple of great DG-signed prizes, so I’m going to ask you to work a bit, I’m afraid. Not physical labour, mind, but you will need to get your creative energy fired up.
Up for grabs in a random draw open to all entrants is a 20th Anniversary Special Edition Outlander, signed by Diana Gabaldon. It looks just like the one in the picture of Fiona’s Ginger-Nut Biscuits, above, by Outlander Kitchen friend Claire.
A second prize, consisting of a spurtle signed by Diana and an Outlander Kitchen notebook, will be awarded to the most creative/photogenic/original/etc entry (as determined by myself.)
To enter, send me a picture of your favourite Outlander Kitchen recipe. I’ve included a few past OK fan photos on this post for your inspiration — I’m struck by the beautiful, like Claire’s picture above, but also by this perfectly cooked medium-rare Roast Beef for a Wedding Feast from Lori.
(Mrs Fitz would have been proud to place that “joint” on the table in front of her Laird.)
Or maybe you’ve got a way with set decoration like Jeanie. She posted the following picture of Hot Chocolate with La Dame Blanche (wave to Master Raymond!) on Facebook on a cold winter’s morning, and had thousands drooling and begging to stop by her place to curl up in front of the fire with a good book.
(Not to mention that cake. I feel a wee daydream vacay to a well-appointed 18th Century Parisian salon coming on, don’t you?)
