Win me.

Each week we’re picking one reader of Edible Brooklyn.com or Edible Manhattan.com to win prizes like charcoal grills, Breville kitchen appliances, a Bodum French press or even a year’s subscription to our own magazines. This week’s winner will receive this killer Fyrkat 13.4-inch portable charcoal grill.

Here’s how to enter to win this week’s contest: Tell us about your favorite local food artisan in the comments below before midnight on Friday. Be sure to register with a real email address so we can contact you later if you win. We’ll pick a reader based on what we think is the best response. Extra points for those who lead us to best–ofs we haven’t already tracked down for our online listings.

Last week’s winner is Brian Stitt, who answered our question about your favorite food artisan. Seeing as we’re just about to send our Dairy-themed issue to the printer, we couldn’t resist his reply, about the wonderful ice cream shop Ample Hills Creamery at 623 Vanderbilt Avenue at St. Marks Avenue in Prospect Heights. He writes:

“Ice cream is one thing I’ve never tried to make for myself, and with Ample Hills on Vanderbilt churning it out all year long I won’t have to anytime soon. For me, ice cream is not a seasonal food, but a secret chamber in my personal food pyramid. The butter fat content is just right, thick, substantial mouth feel. Their flavors dance perfectly between wildly creative and comfortable and every time I turn around I have a new favorite. (Their St. Louis-inspired Gooey-Butter Cake flavor accompanied me while I watched the Cardinals in the playoffs last fall, but I’m digging their Chocolate Stout these days.) They’ve even been willing to pop open the door after they’ve closed to help me out.”

    Since I was a child attending Waldorf School sugar was forbidden except on Fridays, when my dad was off and our breakfast was doughnuts. I have searched far and wide since moving to Brooklyn nine years ago to satiate this eternal craving, not until I recently discovered Dough at 448 Franklin, was satisfaction mine. Fridays are all Blood Orange followed by Lemon Poppy Seed. The sophisticated flavors make it seem a grown up endeavor. Everyone who helps you seems to drip with the same sticky sweet glaze that coats these masterpieces, all smiles and thank yeah. I am super excited to have a place to take my pops when he visits.
