This book - The Amateur Gourmet: How To Shop, Chop, and Table Hop Like a Pro (Almost) - is about all of the above, with more than a little bit of useful information thrown in for good measure. So for your weekend amusement, they’re giving away five copies of Adam’s book. To enter, comment about your worst culinary disaster here.
Winners will be chosen at random, and the contest will close Monday at 6 p.m. ET. The usual Serious Eats contest rules apply.
