With Christmas approaching and books and other goodies piling up in its office, Deep South Magazine is having "12 Days of Giveaways."
For 12 days in a row, the online mag will be giving away books and one or two other items to 12 lucky winners. Today’s giveaway is a new guide to boudin, South Louisiana’s sausage-like delicacy, by Dr. Boudin himself Robert Carriker. With photographs by Denny Culbert (who’s also been documenting North Carolina barbecue aboard The Barbecue Bus), Boudin includes a history of the link, where to get it, and then goes on to feature notable boudin locations throughout the area.
To be entered to win Boudin: A Guide to Louisiana’s Extraordinary Link, just leave a comment on the magazine’s website by midnight. One winner will be chosen at random before tomorrow’s giveaway goes up.
