Win a signed copy of The Breakfast Bible



Breaking news: we have three signed copies of The Breakfast Bible to give away.

For a chance to win our compendium of recipes, facts, essays and wild theories (see what people have been saying about it here and here), all we ask is that you tell us about a real place that has a breakfasty name.

Here's an example: Bacon Street, just off Brick Lane in London. Or the village of Bean, in Kent. If you know one already, great. If not, be a detective (or use the internet).

Leave your answers in the comments section below. You'll only be eligible if you're the first person to suggest a place, which means the sooner you enter, the easier it will be.

The competition will close at 6pm on Tuesday 7 May and we'll pick the winners at random. If you've left a comment anonymously, you should check back later that week to see if you're a victor. Good luck!

What could be more suitable for the London Review of Breakfasts than "Grub Street" in Oxsted, Surrey. Fittingly, it's neatly sandwiched between Grubstreet Copse and Grubstreet Shaw...

In a historic building in old-town Salinas, CA a favorite breakfast spot is "First Awakenings." On busy weekend mornings they serve coffee and tea while patrons wait for their coveted tables.

How about Pie Town in New Mexico in the USA. It seems the apple pies baked there were so good they influenced the town name. The town has once a year a food festival, you guessed it, about pies!

Congratulations to the three of you: please send me your mailing addresses using the email in the sidebar (towards the top).

Thanks though to everyone who entered and sorry you couldn't all win a copy – you have entertained me a lot with your place names, to the point where I've compiled them all (and a load more) into a world map that I am pretty sure is like no other: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zVlxVM37asMc.kzTtmZrRtyFo
