Congratulations! Tracy, you have until Thursday to email me to claim your prize, or then I will select another winner. Truly, I hope that you will all consider supporting this great event. You will more than get your money's worth in food, wine, and experience...and that $85 translates to 340 meals in a local hunger center. Visit for more information.

Today is your lucky day, because I have another great giveaway for one lucky reader. A new local food magazine, edible Cleveland, has hit stands around town and is already causing quite a stir. Here is a little bit more about the magazine:

"We created edible Cleveland to bring attention to the people and stories that make up our local food community. edible Cleveland serves as resources for finding out what's in season, who’s producing it, and where you can find it.

Every season the quarterly publication will introduce you to the people instrumental in making Cleveland’s food scene so vibrant.

Every issue of edible Cleveland will express our core values: Beauty counts. We want to publish a magazine that’s worthy of the paper it’s printed on. Striking photography, the well-turned phrase, and a gorgeous layout combine to create an experience that feels remarkably indulgent. Browsing the pages of edible Cleveland will be an inspiration, and every issue will be an object of beauty. Be optimistic. edible Cleveland is a celebration. As such, we will strive to tell the stories that extend our sense of community, deepen our understanding of practices, satisfy our curiosities about food, and cultivate a vibrant food culture. Local matters. Although edible Cleveland is a member of a thriving national movement, the focus of our work is local, and it will stay that way. We will work with local writers and artists to capture the people, places and food that make up our region’s particular culinary culture. Be of value. edible Cleveland will be a resource for everyone interested in our food culture and will strive to bridge the gap between those who love food and their food sources.

Although it is called edible Cleveland, we include Lake, Geauga, Portage, Summit, Medina, and Lorain counties, since they all contribute, with the communities of Cuyahoga County, to our regional food culture. And we’re a member of Edible Communities, a James Beard Award-winning publishing and information services company that creates editorially rich, community-based, local foods publications in more than 50 distinct culinary regions throughout the United States and Canada. Founded in 2002, Edible Communities the world’s largest publisher of information about local foods with a combined print run of more than five million issues per year and an annual readership of more than fifteen million."

Personally, I'm thrilled that edible Cleveland is now available and can't wait to get my hands on the first issue.Want to win a year's subscription?

My favorite food magazine right now is Clean Eating. I like how there is a good mix of easy to prepare and fancy recipes. They always give new ideas on how to prepare fresh fruits and vegetables.
