We’ve teamed up with Britain’s leading discount book store The Works to give Bristol Bites readers the chance to win a great book from a locally based author.

Established in 1981 as a discount book store, The Works has 300 stores across the UK offering books, arts & crafts and more at discount prices. I hadn’t realised until they emailed me, however, that they also had an online shop, which you can find at www.theworks.co.uk.

Andy Hamilton hosts regular foraging walks in Bristol and further afield, and is the author (along with identical twin Dave) of the Selfsufficientish website. “Booze For Free” was published in August 2011 by Transworld, and is the bible for anyone who is keen to make their own alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from foraged ingredients!

The book contains over 100 recipes including beer made from hops and also yarrow, mugwort, elder and other foraged plants, great tasting wines from fruit, vegetables and the hedgerows, cider and perry from apples and pears, cordials from the leaves of a range of trees, and teas and fizzy drinks from herbs and wayside flowers.

To enter, simply send me an email with the subject “The Works Competition” to emily@bristolbites.co.uk, telling me the recommended retail price of Booze For Free. (You can find this on The Works website). The competition closes at midday on Friday, July 27th, and one winner will be selected from all correct entries.

Good luck!
