The Bay Area is a veritable encyclopedia of culinary innovation, from Alice Waters to zesty craft cocktails. Yet all these riches mean deciding on what to have for dinner can be paralyzing.

Luckily, there’s a dependable foodie tip sheet, the L. A. Times Food section. Every Saturday in the print edition--and daily on the Web--there’s something for everyone, from fun-to-read restaurant reviews by the nation’s only Pulitzer Prize-winning restaurant critic to fresh-and-healthy recipes for seasonal veggies. 

And now, the L. A. Times Food section is giving PureWow readers a chance to win a $500 Sur La Table gift card while fine-tuning your summer cookout plans.  

It takes just three easy steps: First, follow the L. A. Times Food section’s Pinterest boards and create your own board called “My Ultimate Summer Cookout.” Second, repin this cover image and five or more images from the paper’s "Ultimate Summer Cookout" board. Finally, complete this form by July 24, and you’re entered.

Pin it to win it--and along the way, come up with a personalized board full of cookout ideas you’ll use all summer long.
