Sam Talbot Would Very Much Like You to Blog About Him

New, 13 comments

Here's a novel scheme (contest?) from the universe of Surf Lodge chef and former Top Cheffer Sam Talbot. He would like you to write a blog post about him. And if you do a good job, you will win a grand prize: a signed copy of his book and the opportunity to interview him on the phone. Oh and he will tweet about you. Here, his website explains the details:

Your blog could include his new book the Sweet Life, his charity The Sweet Life Kitchen, or his executive chef duties at the Surf Lodge in Montauk. These are suggestions but not requirements. Blogs that exude knowledge of Sam and his background that tie in what he is about will be given winning consideration. Please be as creative and interesting as possible! Please note that blogs that contain "gossip" or cross personal boundary lines will not be considered. Outside of these parameters, please feel free to go in whatever direction you like with your blog!
Hurry up and get those blog posts going—maybe focus on his love of soulful English folk rock and Rogan flannel shirts. The deadline is January 31.
Update: A statement from Talbot's publicist: "The contest was meant to be a way to further engage bloggers and those interested about the issues Sam supports such as diabetes awareness, healthy cooking and sustainable seafood. Unfortunately, the way the contest was written and presented, it was taken in a far different manner. We apologize for the misunderstanding and did not mean to offend anyone. Sam’s site will be posting revised contest instructions shortly. Thanks."
