The Inspiration Chain is continuing to grow. The latest link in the chain saw Kate at Domestikated send Lou at Please Do Not Feed The Animals a copy of the Wagamama cookbook.

If you want to get involved, it’s easy just visit Please Do Not Feed The Animals and leave a comment on her Inspiration Chain post. She’ll put the names in a hat and get her kids to choose one at random. The lucky winner will win a copy of Nigel Slater’s Appetite.

Good luck!

The chain continues like that as long as we can keep it going. Keep track of the Inspiration Chain progress at the dedicated chain page.
