menu for hope prize (c)2006 AECNo need to book a plane ticket, or shop for an expensive hotel room. As part of this year’s Menu for Hope food blogger charity raffle, “Married …with Dinner” will send one lucky winner everything she needs to take a foodie’s tour of the San Francisco Bay Area from the comfort of her own kitchen!

Your “Armchair Food Tour of the San Francisco Bay Area” includes taste-tempting treats from four Northern California counties.

The first stop on our tour is San Francisco, where we pick up:
- a copy of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market cookbook
- a 4.25-oz holiday ornament filled with assorted Ghirardelli chocolates

We cross the bay to Berkeley, and sample:
- a 3/4-pound bag of Peet’s Coffee limited-edition Holiday Blend
- a 13.5-oz. jar of Scharffen Berger Pure Dark Ganache Chocolate Sauce
- an 8-oz. pot of June Taylor Blackberry Conserve

Then over the Golden Gate Bridge to the Wine Country, where we find:
- a 1-pound bag of Rancho Gordo “Ojo de Tigre” heirloom beans
- a 12.5-oz. bottle of Sonoma Syrup Company’s Eureka Lemon simple syrup

The total value of this gourmet gift basket is more than $75! Your winning bid includes FREE shipping to any address in the continental US. [If you live beyond the 48 states, we'll foot bill for shipping up to $25. Please contact chef (at) marriedwithdinner (dot) com and we'll estimate shipping charges for you, if you're interested.]

This raffle prize is CODE UW-34. (Write that down… you’ll need it later.)

Enough of all that!! How do you qualify to win this glorious prize? It’s SOOO simple:

Good luck to all! And thanks for helping support a worthy cause.

Hi Anita – thank you so much for taking part – and apologies again for the mix up. We got there in the end. I never imagined google would put my friends in the spam box without asking me. Tut!

Great prize, thanks

Lots of tasty treats in that basket, Anita. June Taylor, Scharffen Berger, Rancho Gordo, and a delicious sounding syrup that I’d love to try. And a cookbook! Very cool.
