Almost one year ago today, Ecorazzi gave away a signed copy of author/chef Alexandra Jamieson’s book Living Vegan For Dummies and 2 tickets to the launch party in New York City. In the spirit of history repeating itself, we’re giving away yet another awesome prize package for Jamieson’s follow-up book Vegan Cooking for Dummies, which is on shelves now.

Thanks to the success of last year’s contest, this year we’re offering up the same deal: a signed copy of Vegan Cooking for Dummies and 2 tickets to the book launch in NYC on Tuesday, December 14 from 7-10 p.m.

Sponsored in part by Frey Vineyards, Sweet & Sara, Nibmore Chocolates, Dr. Cow and The Regal Vegan, the launch party will feature delicious organic, vegan wine, snacks, books, and holiday cheer. Of course, you’ll also get the chance to hang out with Alex and the Ecorazzi crew.

Sound like something you want to win? Leave a comment below and tell us why you just gotta, gotta, gotta have it! The contest will be open until Sunday, December 12th at 11:59 p.m. (ET); we’ll notify the winner first thing Monday morning. Good luck!

The fine print: This contest includes one signed copy of ‘Vegan Cooking for Dummies’ and two tickets to the ‘Vegan Cooking for Dummies’ launch party in New York City. It does not, however, include airfare or lodging. The winner must live or be able to get to NYC on Tuesday, December 14.

    Because I love books and cooking, and especially cookbooks and would love an excuse to ditch work and have lunch in NYC…

  • BunzOfCinnamon

    Because I need yet another vegan cookbook for my collection!!! Seriously! And I think Alexandra Jamieson is great.

  • Yuriko

    I’m starting the PCRM-sponsored vegan diet kickstart in January and could use some help!

    Because I am a vegan dummy –HEY wait a sec there…

  • Sarah

    I began my vegan adventure (life!) after reading an article by Alexandra Jameison! Since then, I’ve shared her inspiration with others in my life, who were equally inspired — and the vegan pay-it-forward chain continues! What an absolutely awesome opportunity — to be inspired by Jameison in person — in an absolutely awesome city! I’ve just gotta’ be there, and these tickets are the way! Thank you!

    A Holiday Thought…

    Aren’t humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for “Peace on Earth.”

      Notice “…and their feed.” so even non-meat eaters contribute to this killing.

      It is a well respected theory that every human every born will end up dying.
      Modern vegetarians in the industrialized world have been around since at least the 1840’s, yet we don’t see greatly expanded life spans. Also every disease mentioned is also found, admittedly at lower levels, among life-long vegetarians.

      Again all those diseases also occur in life-long vegetarians. Also many other diseases, with no know connection to meat-eating, also result in the spending of billions of dollars and the killing of millions of research animals.

      Many domestic animals in many parts of the world subsist on food that humans could not live on.

      Seems to assume that all or even a majority of humans celebrate Christmas. Christians made about 33% of the population in 2005 and Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism and Baha’i are all growing faster.
