COMP CLOSED: WIN ‘Serendipity’ by Oscar Farinetti

This week’s giveaway book has been described as “a celebration of accidental success in the world of gastronomy”. A fascinating look at the happy accidents that have led to some of the world’s most tastiest delights. It’s called Serendipity, by Oscar Farinetti – and we have three copies to be won.

Did you know that your morning coffee could be thanks to a herd of energetic goats? Or that a forgotten ingredient is behind the invention of the beloved brownie? Who got the fright of their life discovering corn could pop? And which popular soft drink first started out as a medicinal syrup?

Oscar Farinetti, founder of high-end global food chain Eataly, presents this collection of insightful and entertaining interviews with leading artisan food producers, chefs, inventors and CEOs around the world.

Reflecting on the accidental discoveries that gave birth to some of the world's most well-known gastronomic delights – including Nutella, the humble sandwich, french fries, the ice-cream cone, rum and balsamic vinegar – these serendipitous tales ponder humankind's never-ending quest to discover something new, and remind us that our mistakes, our flaws, our failures, can often be the most necessary ingredient in finding success.

If you’d like to win a copy of this book, tell us about any kind of “happy accident” that happened in YOUR life. Our three favourites will win a copy of this book!

Entries close midday Monday 1 August 2022, Sydney/Melbourne time.
