Update: Congratulations to Liselotte in the Netherlands. You’ve won a copy of ‘My Little French Kitchen’!
Last Thursday and Friday saw me heading over to Amsterdam to launch my latest book in Dutch. It was great to be back (I had such a great time last time I was there). I found out when I arrived Wednesday evening that I would be a judge on the Dutch baking TV show, Bake My Day. Needless to say, I spent the evening practicing my very best Mary Berry judging expression in the mirror (after an excellent meal at Speijkervet).
An early start on Thursday heading to the studio (a double take and a squeal of delight when I spotted myself on a bus stop poster).
After ‘deliberating, cogitating and digesting’ the competitors’ dishes (the episode will air in May sometime) I headed back to Mister Kitchen to do a couple of workshops with food bloggers, news reporters and competition winners. There was plenty to do – we made savoury sablé and a selection of sweet and savoury pinxtos.
Friday morning there was a champagne breakfast and interviews before getting on the plane where the passenger next to me thought I would knock myself out because I kept on nodding off, quite violently. Next week I’ll be off to Munich for the German launch. Stay tuned!
GIVEAWAY: I have a signed copy of ‘Mijn Franse Keuken’ to give away to one of my Dutch readers. Thanks a lot for your support.
For your chance to win, leave a comment here on my blog (bonus points if you spread the word via your own blog, Twitter, Instagram or Facebook – include the hashtag #rachelkhoodutchgiveaway!). I’ll be drawing a winner on Friday March 14, so you have until Thursday March 13 to enter. Veel succes!
The fine print: This giveaway is open to residents of Holland (or you’re most welcome to enter from other destinations, if you have a friend/family member based in Holland who can receive the book at their address). Any queries, send me an email
