November 2004 Gourmet Guess Contest Prize


Meridian elité 4-Inch Petite Chef's Knife
Kuhn Rikon's Twist & Chop, and
Meadowsweet Kitchens' Wine Label Journal

This month's Gourmet Guess winners will receive a trio of gifts that any foodie will appreciate: the Meridian elité 4-Inch Petite Chef's Knife from Messermeister, the handy Kuhn Rikon Twist & Chop and the Meadowsweet Kitchens Wine Label Journal.


Known for innovation in premier German cutlery, Messermeister presents the Meridian elité 4-Inch Petite Chef's Knife. Messermeister's elité edge, one of the sharpest on the market today, is created with a special three-step sharpening process and hand polishing of the edge to make it easier to slice, dice and cut food.

The new Kuhn Rikon Twist & Chop reduces vegetables and fruits to a fine chop with a few quick flicks of the wrist. Ideal for chopping onion, garlic, olives or peppers, it's easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store.

For those who love wine, the new Wine Label Journal from Meadowsweet Kitchens saves wine labels and notes together. Each page of this beautiful home reference book has space for a wine label and accompanying tasting notes.

The total combined value of this month's Gourmet Guess prize is $114.
