  1. Dear Chef Gwen, I wanted to thank you for your blog on our Bamboo Rice. I started Urban Accents in my basement in Chicago 12 years ago. We started with 12 all-natural spice blends. Now we have over 120 specialty food items in our line.

    I know that the Bamboo Rice is expensive! There were crop shortages and freight increases all through 2007 – 2008. We hope to see some leveling off later this year.

    Take a look at my website and if you see anything you’d like to try I’d be happy to send it along. I get out to Portland every now and then. I love Leroux Kitchen and I don’t think anyone make better chowder than Gilberts!

    Thanks again for trying and writing about our products. Please let me know if you have any questions about us.

    Cheers!

    Tom

  2. Dear Tom:

    I’m glad you found my blog post about your rice.

    And thank you for the insight about why it was so darn expensive! Delicious, but pricey, for sure.

    I write about whatever strikes my fancy, and your bamboo rice caught my eye at the store so I gave it a try. Glad I did.

    Do you have an RSS feed to your website? I have a cooking page on Google and I would love to add you to that page. BTW, I found your comment on Simply Recipes which led me to your homepage. I live right outside Portland and am eager to try some of your restaurant picks.

    Thanks,
    Eric

  5. Im a full time student at ISU and work full time as a restaurant manager in order to be able to afford to go to school. For one of my classes we have to set up a blog account and a website dealing with an area of expertise and i chose dining out since i have always worked in the restaurant industry. I read you blog and agree that those are all great tips on saving money while eating out. People do dine this way during tough time because i witness this day to day.

    Miss Gwen — 🙂

    Any chance of announcing the winner? I know the tickets are going fast, and I’d like to get them online this week if I’m not the winner — thanks so much for the opportunity!
