Can you see me doing a happy dance?  Can you at least imagine me doing a very happy dance?  Today the Bewitching Kitchen hit a special milestone, reaching 500,000 page views, and I’m in heaven!  It seems like only yesterday the site registered the first 100 views, and had the first comment coming from someone other than close friends and family.  😉  Half a million page views!  Great feeling, folks!

To celebrate, I am giving away a very special book called Jerusalem: A Cookbook, written by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. The story behind these authors is fascinating! You can read a little bit about it here. Jerusalem is more than a cookbook, it describes the complexities of different cultures co-existing, and the way they influence each other in ways that reach way beyond cooking.  The recipes have that exotic feel that make your mind travel to far away places, imagining each smell and taste.  So, if you would like to get this book as a gift,  leave a comment in this post, and I will draw the lucky winner’s name on December 14th, which happens to be Ottolenghi’s birthday!

Thank you so much for carrying me through the milestone of half a million page views!
