Three Scoops and a Fig Ice Cream Maker Give-Away
We are doing a contest at our booth around the picture book Three Scoops and a Fig (August 2010), which is about a little girl who is tired of always being in the way in the busy kitchen of her family’s Italian restaurant, so she comes up with a delicious new recipe of her own: The Italian Flag Sundae. The sundae includes gelato and some juicy figs from the tree outside her house. To celebrate and promote this book, we will be giving away an ice cream maker so the winner can make their own Italian Flag Sundae.
BEA attendees can enter the contest at our booth, and the winner will be announced via email after the show.
