Ramadan is just around the corner and everyone is starting to gather recipes to impress their families and guests during this season. The launch of ‘From Our World to Your Plate’ at Kinokuniya Book store (Dubai Mall) has cooked up quite a stir with everyone trying to grab a copy and get cooking in the kitchen. At the moment this cookbook is only available in the UAE (will be online soon) but I have just one copy to giveaway to one very lucky reader in Bahrain, just in time for Ramadan!!!! To enter the giveaway just click on this link.
The cookbook is a collection of recipes gathered from parents and teachers at Jumeira Baccalaureate School in Dubai. The idea started as a group of friends sharing food, and evolved into an exquisite book filled with recipes from all around the world. The cookbook, which is expected to inspire people of all ages, comprises over 150 recipes, and saw people sharing recipes that have been part of their families for generations.
Producing this book aims to support Dubai Cares, the UAE based philanthropic organization that is close to the parents’ hearts. The parents are blessed with happy, healthy and well fed children and therefore the aim was to find a charity that improves the lives of children who are not as fortunate.
Mrs Si Youcef, one of the founders of the cookbook said: “Creating the cookbook involved hard work such as preparing the food, styling, photography, graphic design and editing. In spite of this, it has been an absolute joy putting together this precious book, especially knowing that children, just like our own, somewhere in the world, will benefit. It would not have been possible without all of the recipe contributors and advertisers.”
