With summer holidays just around the corner and before leaving our beloved Brussels to explore new territories, it’s the perfect time to say a huge “Thank You” to all the wonderful readers of S Marks The Spots by putting together a Foodie Giveaway! Truth is, I would love to be able to treat each and everyone of you to a little gift for sticking around but there can be only one winner in this case.

Before I tell you all about the present, let me present you my partner in crime in this Foodie Giveaway! I first met Arianna, the lovely lady behind Un Altro Colore, on our first Brussels Food Friends event where I got to try her jam. It was love at first bite – she makes hands down the best jam in Brussels! Made with seasonal, organic fruits and sweeteners like agave syrup and apple juice, they are delicious and much healthier than your average jam. The flavors of the fruits are mixed with spices from around the world: cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom, mastic and many more! Arianna is also an excellent baker and organizes regularly workshops with Bookalokal.

Our gift to you is a free spot on her Sourdough Bread & Italian Merenda workshop AND a pot of jam of your liking to take away with you after the workshop. Some of Arianna’s jams that you can choose from: strawberries preserve with peppermint and Sichouan peppercorn, organic apricots preserve with agave syrup and cardamom, wild red currants preserve with banana, wild raspberries preserve with peppermint, organic plumbs preserve with agave syrup and cardamom, organic pears preserve with star anise and muscovado sugar, organic lemon (Fino from Sicily) jam with peppermint and fleur de sel, lemon curd with no butter. Pretty good, ehh? And there’s more: I will also attend Arianna’s workshop, so we’re going to spend our afternoon together baking and sharing foodie tips!

So, now the rules… Attention please! In order to enter the Foodie Giveaway you have to

* Leave a comment on this post with your name and let us know which is your favourite jam flavour;

* Like S Marks The Spots and Un Altro Colore on Facebook;

* Enter your email in the box on your right so that we can get in touch with you. 

Everyone has the same chance of winning, whether you live in or outside Belgium. The Giveaway closes on Thursday, July 10th. The lucky winner will be randomly picked and announced on that day both on this blog post and our Facebook pages. No cash or alternative prizes will be offered. Hope all the rules are clear but if you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line. Ready? Let’s go!

Good luck!!!
