Synopsis

Nothing conveys our interdependence more compellingly than the food we eat. It builds our physical resilience, brings us joy, and strengthens our bonds with family and friends. The recipes in this uplifting book celebrate this truth. They come from the women living in the war-torn countries in which WfWI operate. Recipes also come from renowned international chefs such as Alice Waters, Maggie Beer and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and humanitarians such as Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Emma Thompson, Richard Branson, Paul McCartney and Mia Farrow. Illustrated with stunning photography of the countries as well as the food, they cover everyday dishes, family meals, and recipes perfect for sharing and celebrating. They range from traditional Afghani bichak pastries and Congolese sticky doughnuts, to spicy cashew and tomato soup, beef rendang and orange-scented almond cake. Interspersed throughout are inspiring stories from the women whose lives have been changed through the intervention of WfWI.

All the royalties from the book will support WfWI's farming and food training initiatives, as well as provide micro-financing in the eight countries in which WfWI operate - Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.

Customer Reviews

I was given this beautiful book as a present. I love it. The food photography is mouth watering and so are the recipe ideas. The Chocolate Layer Slice was a big hit with my family and the Sticky Glazed Ribs too.

Brilliant - compassionate, heart-warming + food! A truely inspiring book, for which every home should have a place at its heart. Enjoy the delicious food - recipes to share with friends and family and community. The presentation, style and photography are beautiful - and so much goodwill has gone into the creation of this book. I have ordered the book for myself to support the work of Women for Women International and as gifts to SHARE.
