As I had mentioned in the announcement, this edition onwards the winner could be lucky or doubly lucky. If the winner resides in the US, he or she is also eligible for a gift sponsored by the Hurst Bean Company.

I used the random number generator to pick the winner. In case of multiple entries I considered one random entry. 13 proved to be a lucky for Bhagyashri of Taste Buds. Her dish was simple lentils (Varan). She resides in London and unfortunately is not eligible for the second gift. Congratulations Bhagyashri, Susan will soon contact you for details. Bhagyashri wins “The Williams-Sonoma Collection:Cookies by Marie Simmons.

Will 14 prove lucky or doubly luck for someone? You will have to wait and watch after sending your entries to Susan as she is hosting MLLA 14.

In case you had sent me an entry and I have left it out here in the round up, please accept my apologies. I will include it if you leave a comment here and send me your original mail again.
