Blog Aid for Haiti

Hey, you guys. I saw this on The Traveler’s Lunchbox this morning. Twenty-seven different food bloggers and writers have contributed recipes and photographs for a cookbook to support Haiti. If you click on the Traveler’s Lunchbox above, Melissa explains it very eloquently and in depth, but in summation: The cookbook, with recipes running the gamut from entrees to desserts to gluten-free to vegetarian, comes in two versions — softcover for $25 and hardcover for $50. The funds earned will go to the Haiti relief effort via the Canadian Red Cross and Doctors without Borders. AND the publisher (Blurb) and West Canadian Graphics are matching every dollar raised up to $10,000. AND THEN, the Canadian government is doing a match until February 12th. So basically, if you spend $25 on a glossy, groovy, full-color cookbook, a whole lot more than $25 will go to Haiti.

So if you’re like me and you love to stockpile cookbooks and read them while you’re eating breakfast (or any time, really), consider picking up one of these babies. I just bought one, and I’m really glad to be able to participate in this food blogging community effort. Go here to read more about the cookbook, see who has contributed, and take a sneak peek. And, you know, get one.
