The BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine Cookbook

Many of you may know about BloggerAid-Changing the Face of Famine. It's a wonderful virtual organization of food bloggers from around the world who want to make a difference. Given that we all share a love and passion for food, it was easy to choose a project...create a cookbook with 100% of the proceeds targeting children and education through the World Food Programme - School Meals which benefits 22 million hungry children each year. School meals are important on many levels. In countries where school attendance is low, the promise of at least one nutritious meal each day boosts enrollment and promotes regular attendance.
This book is a virtual way for all of us, wherever we may be and however rich or poor we may be, to pull up a chair at the same table and share what we have.

That part was easy, as was getting 140 fantastic international recipes from terrific food bloggers around the world - 60 countries to be exact. And finally, after much recipe testing, editing, formatting, etc., the gorgeous cookbook - all those photos will have you drooling - is ready and waiting for you to buy a copy and make a difference.

And if the cause isn't enough to entice you...take a gander at some of the tasty treats you'll find between the covers...

"Through these recipes they share their traditions and insatiable curiosity about
new flavours. They pay tribute to the home cooking of our grandmothers, while
celebrating the exoticism and richness of a world brought closer together by their hopes to make a difference. With recipes such as Tomato-Cheese Ravioli with Eggplant Sauce, Spicy Serundeng Tuna and Peanuts, Serrano Ham Paella with
Oyster Mushrooms, Raspberry Mascarpone Bites and Triple Layer Orange-Passion
Fruit Tart we are doing our part to say that bloggers can change the face of famine."

Wait no more...head over to the Create Space eStore. The book will make a perfect gift for the holidays ahead. So that's one for you...one for your sister, daughter, brother, best friend....whoever your favorite foodie is. Go on...make a difference.
