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.
