The First Teff Love Giveaway!


I'm giving away the first copy! Right now.
Hi! Hi hi hi! I'm pretty excited to announce my publisher, Book Publishing Company, is expecting a warehouse fully stocked with Teff Love (affiliate link) on Monday! This means that Amazon will soon be shipping pre-orders to friendly and menacing doormats alike, and that stores near you will hopefully have the book in neat piles waiting for you to come and purchase it. There will also be an e-book coming shortly!

Pickled beet and potato salad, homemade cheese, stewed cabbage and split peas with a toasted sunflower seed milk.
All the Mmmmz.
In the meantime, I'm so excited to share Teff Love that I'm giving away the first copy here! So many exclamation marks!

To enter to win, please have a snail-mail address either in the U.S. or Canada and comment below by January 18th! If you want to be extra awesome, you could like my page on Facebooook or subscribe to my posts (on the left side of the blog), but since I love my readers, I will never force you to do that.

Scrambled chickpea tofu, split peas, and chickpea flour crackers in a spicy onion sauce.
I'm also working on a virtual book tour which will be taking place starting next month and going into April, so if you want more info about the book before you take the plunge, there'll be lots of pictures, recipes, and reviews coming soon. I'll also post a calendar of the tour with participating blogs/sites to follow, as soon as I have the details all starched and ironed out.

Homemade 100% teff injera.
Please be sure to comment by midnight PST on January 18th to win, and include a way for me to get in touch with you. The winner will be chosen at random, and the book will be given away at my own cost and expense.

  1. I'm so excited for your cookbook to come out. Ethiopian is a cuisine I have no experience with at home and would love to become more comfortable with. Any advice on where to stock up on necessary spices?

    1. Are you in Seattle? One of my testers loved this place. amysmerkato.com
      Amy’s Merkato is a small grocery in Seattle, Washington,
      specializing in Ethiopian spices and ingredients.
      They also make injera on site and will ship if you call
      them directly. Their gluten-free, 100 percent teff injera
      is prepared on demand, with twenty-four hour’s notice.

  2. I had Ethiopian food for the first time last month. I'm very excited to try cooking it myself. All the pictures here look so good and make me hungry. I need to get some teff so I can make injera and stuff my face.

  3. Ohhh, this is exciting! Being a gluten free vegan, I love foods that are naturally GF as most Ethiopian cuisine is. Also hope to see your book at The Publishing Company's table at Chicago VeganMania this year!

  4. I'm a long-time Ethio enthusiast, but have no such dining options currently in my smallish Midwestern city, so it's either homemade or forget about it. I'd rather not forget about it -- so this book would come in super handy! I have two of your other book/zines and love them - I know this would make a wonderful addition....!

  16. Would love to make Ethiopian food at home for something completely different. I go into the city about once a year for it and take all my European guests there. No better place to go for vegan and no vegan food.

    By the time I first heard of your zine, it was long gone, and there was sadface.
    But at least I'd found your blog, so there was happyface.
    Then you announced the upcoming book, and there was joyface!

  36. Hey Kittee!

    Congratulations! The day is almost here! It's been a long wait, but definitely worth it. I cannot wait to have Ethiopian stockpiled in my fridge, freezer, and belly. :) Deliciousness awaits us, and the Ethiopian revolution continues where the epic Papa Tofu left us!

    Bask in your accomplishment. So exciting!

    1. Hi Lisa!
      I think I'm only gonna sell these locally right now, so you should just get it wherever you normall get books. And, if you're thinking of getting it through Amazon, I make the most money if you click through the affiliate link on the right sidebar (I get a small commission that way). Thanks!! Will you be in DC anytime soon? I'll be there March and April! xo

  66. I am having trouble commenting so I am trying it as Anonymous. I am super excited about your book. Just this minute heard about it. We moved to MI from CA where we had easy access to Ethiopian food, YUM! we now live over two hours away from an Ethiopian restaurant:( We were raving over the holidays to family about how wonderful Ethiopian food is. So if I can't go to the Ethiopian food then I'll make it:) Can't wait to get cooking. Thank you for putting together this much needed book (I'm not suppose to be buying any more cookbooks.....but this is a must!)

  69. I LOVE Ethiopian food! And sadly I moved away from some of the best restaurants. Whenever my boyfriend and I went out to eat the hostess was always nice enough to point out what was vegan on the menu so that I may enjoy the food as well. I would so get your book but a chance to win one would be spiffy!
