Giveaway: Fancy French Magimix!
Happy Tuesday! Things feel so funny and upside down but all in a good way around here–Henry’s done with kindergarten, my brother’s home from a long season away, Aaron’s traveling like crazy and for the first time in a long time, I’m not. We’re settling into a totally new summer rhythm–lots of time at the park, lots of peaches, lots of bike rides and boat rides up at the lake. As you know, I’m a summer girl, and summer food is my favorite food: berries and corn, anything grilled, ice cream and popsicles all day long.
I’m in the mood for summer cooking, and I’m so excited about this giveaway. The team at Magimix by Robot-Coupe asked if I’d like to give away one of their amazing food processors, and I couldn’t say yes fast enough. For the record, from time to time I get offers like this, and I pass on most of them. I only give away things that I love, and things that I’m legitimately excited to share with you.
Magimix by Robot-Coupe is a well-loved, much-respected French company, and in the US you can buy their lovely machines only at Williams Sonoma. You know I love all things French, and you know I love all things kitchen. A Magimix is, as they say, right in my wheelhouse.
Over the weekend, my cousin and I let the kids cover our entire driveway with sidewalk chalk amazingness while we tried every blade and bowl of the Magimix. Bottom line: we are impressed. We are in love. We are fans.
We pureed carrots and pineapple for yummy homemade popsicles and made long slim ribbons of cucumber for a Greek salad. We whizzed up onions for soup, and apples for a crisp…and then we ate all the pretty apple slices before we ever ended up making the crisp. Such is life in the kitchen. Still on our list to try: pesto with fresh basil, green juice, and homemade mayonnaise–maybe this weekend.
I know: wouldn’t it be nice if this post was just littered with beautiful photographs of my cousin and I, blending our little hearts out with my new best friend Magimix? I know it really would, but all the photos came out blurry and terrible, and I don’t want to make you wait any longer for this great machine. Just trust me that we loved every minute of it. And you will, too.
There’s a juicer bowl, a dough attachment, and a beautiful book of recipes. This is a serious, do-everything, keep-it-on-your-counter-and-use-it-every-day food processor, and I’m so happy to tell you that Magimix will send one 14-cup chrome food processor AND the juicer bowl attachment to one winner. You will LOVE it.
To win, just leave a comment with your favorite summer recipe—simple or complicated, classic or creative—anything at all!
I’ll choose a winner at noon CST on Friday, June 7th, and the winner will have until Monday at noon CST to send me an email with his or her mailing address.
Good luck! XO–S
