Our four-week "Emeril's Missing Ingredient Sweepstake" on WineLoversPage.com is now concluded, and we hope you've enjoyed the fun of searching for the missing ingredient in a series of recipes from celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse's new cookbook, "Prime Time Emeril."
As many of you noticed, a careless error in the publication of last week's challenge recipe made it easier than expected to pick the missing ingredient: "Bread" was inadvertently omitted from the ingredient list for Emeril's Cherry and White Chocolate, er, BREAD Pudding. Although that wasn't the intended missing ingredient for contest purposes, we're accepting entries from all of you who - with varying degrees of sarcasm - pointed out this obvious lapse.
We'll announce the winners and all the missing ingredients on this page and in The 30 Second Wine Advisor's FoodLetter on Feb. 28, and will send out all the prizes shortly. We will also keep the recipes online for a while.
Cookbook winners were chosen at random from all entries that correctly identify the missing ingredient. Special bonus prizes of Emeril's spices and sauces went to selected entries whose comments impressed the judges with their imagination and creativity.
Winners must be at least 21 years old and may not be an employee or contractor of WineLoversPage.com, Emerils.com or DNA Studio, marketing organization for Emerils.com. By entering you agreed to permit WineLoversPage.com and Emerils.com to publish your name and your responses and to send you occasional information; but we will not give, trade or sell your Internet or postal address information to others.
We have been pleased to partner with Emerils.com to bring you the fun of celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse and his cooking in this special contest!
