If you're a Serious Eater, you've gotten to know Adam Roberts, (aka The Amateur Gourmet), here and on his own blog. A couple of weeks ago, we kicked off Adam's blog book tour with an amusing Q & A (Adam is almost always amusing, diverting, and downright entertaining). His book, The Amateur Gourmet: How To Shop, Chop, and Table Hop Like a Pro (Almost), is all of the above, with more than a little bit of useful information thrown in for good measure. So for your weekend amusement, we're giving away five copies of Adam's book. To enter, describe your worst culinary disaster.

Winners will be chosen at random from among the comments, and the contest will close Monday at 6 p.m. ET. The usual Serious Eats contest rules apply.
