Winner of the Kupilka Starter Kit…

The response to my Kupilka Starter Kit Giveaway was phenomenal, far greater than anything I had expected. After going through all of the emails I received to determine if they were complete or not (I did respond to everyone that forgot a photo even though UI said I wouldn’t), I received a total of 144 eligible submissions!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to the questions and attached a photo of their cooking kit. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to post very many of the responses, but there were a lot of excellent ones. Time permitting I’ll share some more so we can all see what cooking kit is being used.

So, the real question on everyone’s mind is – who is the winner? As with all my other giveaways, there is just no good way for me to personally pick a winner, so I turn to to do the dirty work for me. Here’s how it went down…


Congratulations to Joslyn Davisson! Please contact me so that I can get your shipping address and send your Kupilka goodies off to you. My condolences to those of you that took the time to enter but did not win. I will be having more giveaways later in the year in an effort to clear out my growing gear closet – so stay tuned.
