Cat Cora Contest Winners Announced

More than 50 readers entered our Cat Cora contest, and we've held a drawing to choose three winners, who will each receive the following:

*One Chow Bella apron.

*Two front-row spots for Cora's reading/cooking demonstration June 23 at Changing Hands.

*Two spots in the "A" group to get Cora's book signed. (Does not include a copy of the book, that you'll have to buy yourself.)

(We'll announce the winners after the jump.)

For fun, we asked you to name the ingredient you'd most like to see Iron Chef Cora use on a future episode of the show. The answers ranged all the way from Pez to Slim-Fast. In the end we drew from a hat, and the winners are:

Cheryl A., quelites (wild Mexican greens)

Gino, matcha

Veronica, Kalamata olives

Winners, please email us directly and we'll get you the details about how to claim your prizes: [email protected].

And don't be dismayed if you didn't win. We've got more aprons and more front-row seats for June 23, so check back tomorrow on Chow Bella for details about our next contest.
