This is the round-up of the 61st edition of My Legume Love Affair (MLLA), which means that there have been 60 editions previously. It also means that, given the enthusiastic response this event evokes in the food blog world every month, people do indeed love their legumes a lot! It’s nice to see that the 61st edition of MLLA also brought out the best in the lentil world once again, and I’m happy to present the round-up. I have tried to categorise the submission under various headings for easy reference but otherwise the submission have been presented no particular order.

I have, to the best of my belief, included all the submissions I was sent in this round-up. If you had sent me a submission and I have, by some chance left it out, please send me a mail or leave a comment at this post and I will include it.
And it’s finally that time that everyone’s been waiting for – the announcement of the prize winners! month. As I mentioned in the announcement post, this month, there’s an extra prize to be won so that’s a total of three prizes.
As always, there is a case of six bags of the winner’s choice of Hurst Bean products sponsored by Hurst Beans for one US resident. Then there is a copy of Sandeepa MukherjeeDatta’s (a.k.a the BongMom) book of the same name for one lucky participant from anywhere in the world.
And this time there’s also a copy of this book to be won exclusively by a participant who is an Indian resident. Susan is generously offering both copies of the book at her own expense, and she will also pay for shipping worldwide.
And the winners are……
Congratulations ladies, on you win. Lisa will be getting in touch with you shortly with details regarding your prize.
I would also like to thank Susan who started this whole thing when she thought up MLLA five years ago, and Lisa who has taken on the mantle to keep this event going. Finally, my thanks to all those who participated in this month’s MLLA to make it the success this event is.
The August edition of MLLA is being hosted by Siri, so please see her announcement post for more details
