Today we have two prizes to help you sharpen you senses today. The long awaited cookbook from David Kinch’s award-winning restaurant Manresa for inspiration and a ZWILLING Pro Chef’s Knife to help you recreate the beautiful recipes. I have been using Henckel knives for about 30 years and still have the first ones I bought. Made by the ZWILLLING J.A. Henckel’s company, my chef’s knives are the workhorses of my kitchen, and I use them daily. Heavy enough for cutting through bones, the perfect balance of these knives lets you do detail work with ease. I love the deep bolster that protects my fingers from the sharp blades. Every cook should have one (or a dozen) of these beautiful knives in their kitchen arsenal. I am thrilled to be able to include this knife in my giveaways thanks to the kind folks at ZWILLING.
Even though Manresa is near by in the San Francisco Bay Area, it is still one of the restaurants I am dreaming of having a meal at one day. Situated at the base of the Santa Cruz hills, it is a Michelin star winner and a regular on lists of the country’s best restaurants. After a devastating fire last year, David and his team reopened the restaurant and barely missed a beat. Manresa is known for its inventive tasting menus, inspired and sourced from its own biodynamic gardens and the produce of Love Apple Farms, an organic farm higher in the hills (it is where I buy my tomato plants each year!). Like the better known French Laundry, you can expect to spend an entire evening enjoying course after course of dishes delivered with precision choreography by the exquisitely trained staff. This is most definitely a destination restaurant and one worth the wait!

Manresa: An Edible Perspective cookbook
Since opening Manresa in Los Gatos in 2002, Chef David Kinch has done more to create a sense of place through his food—specifically where the Santa Cruz Mountains meet the sea—than any other chef on the West Coast.
The restaurant’s thought-provoking dishes and unconventional pairings draw on techniques both traditional and modern that combine with the heart of the Manresa experience: fruits and vegetables. Through a pioneering collaboration between farm and restaurant, nearby Love Apple Farms supplies nearly all of the restaurant’s exquisite produce. Manresa is an ode to the mountains, fields, and sea; it shares the philosophies and passions of a brilliant chef whose restaurant draws its inspiration globally, while always keeping a profound connection to the people, producers, and bounty of the land that surrounds it.
