Morimoto Contest

Morimoto Japanese Cookbook

How well do you know Iron Chef and restaurateur Morimoto? If you know him well enough, you might just win a copy of his latest book, Morimoto The New Art of Japanese Cooking. It's a book I reviewed about a week or so ago.

I have five copies of this book to give away. Only one entry per person, so choose carefully! Remember, you MUST include your email to win and your mailing address must be in the United States--sorry but this is because I'm paying for shipping. Also, you will not be eligible if you have already won a book this year on Cooking with Amy. Just choose your answers and post them in the comments section. The first five people to correctly answer all the questions will win a copy of the book. Good luck!
