The winners* of the Afghanistan Photo Book by Joe Hoyt are readers Pamela Rupright and Hana Faizi. The best part of the giveaway for me was reading your comments and learning about your favorite Af ghan dishes. Thank you for taking the time to share your love of Afghan food.
I also want to thank my friend Joe Hoyt for sharing his beautiful books with my readers.
Here is what each of the winners said about their interest in Afghan food:
Pam - It's so hard to choose a favorite dish! Probably kadoo or shor nakod, though so many others are delicious too. I started following the blog when you and Katie started its predecessor and have loved every post.
Hana - I fell in love with chapli (kebab) for the first time in Fremont and decided right there and then that if an opportunity ever rises where an Afghan would fall in love with me I would marry him. That opportunity came and I am (now) married with beautiful kids.
I would love to own your book to display and talk about in the parties I regularly hold with your recipes. It will give people an opportunity to view the pre-war era of Afghanistan that my in-laws refer to with love and tears in their eyes.
