Dear friends, readers and fellow bloggers. The first event that we hosted @ Anzzcafe has officially concluded. I was amazed at the entries that I received and I cannot thank you guys enough for the effort that you have taken to make this event a success.

I was initially planning to give out a single book as the giveaway, but then I was at a loss to choose. There were so many entries and so many bloggers who participated in the event. I wished I could give each and everyone of you a book. But that is not meant to be. So I have decided to choose 3 random entries instead of 1, as the giveaway winners. They are wonderful bloggers, great chefs and wonderful persons. And I am glad to give this book off to them. I hope it inspires them to develop their skills and come out with better dishes for us readers. They are

Congratulations to all the winners. I have a badge for all the participants and I hope you guys will accept it. Thank you for being a part of this event. I am humbled that all of you came together and made this event memorable.
