Product description

The underlying message of Share is simple: for all our apparent diversity as individuals, societies and nations our actions, however small, can have an exponential, positive influence both on the world and the lives of others. Nothing more beautifully conveys our interdependence than the food we eat. The recipes featured in this uplifting book provided by contributors who are all actively engaged in humanitarian issues, as well women from the eight countries in which Woment for Women International (WfWI) work celebrate this truth and range from traditional Afghani flatbreads stuffed with falafel and Kosovan sticky doughnuts to split pea soup, lamb burgers with mint and beet, and apple tea with cinnamon. Food builds our physical resilience, brings us joy, and strengthens our bonds with family and friends. What we choose to eat, and how we choose to prepare it, can also generate employment, wealth and economic stability for others. Chapters include Well-being: Healthy, Everyday Recipes from Afghanistan and South Sudan, with contributions from Alice Waters, Emma Thompson and Annie Lennox; Nurture: Nutritious Family Recipes from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, plus contributions from Jamie Oliver, Mia Farrow and Alice Walker; Community: Generous Recipes Perfect for Sharing from Rwanda and Kosovo, with contributions from Dame Judi Dench and Christiane Amanpour; Trade Recipes focussing on produce grown as a result of WfWI s farming initiatives, with contributions from chefs like Rene Redzepi; Celebration: Bringing the Global Peace Table to Celebrate our Shared Humanity, with contributions from Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela Ben & Jerry and America Ferrara."

Author information

WfWI is a charity dedicated to working with survivors of war in conflict and post-conflict societies. The charity s core belief is that stronger women build stronger nations and that with adequate access to information and resources, socially excluded women can lead change toward stable societies. They are based in Washington, DC."

Review quote

For Lauri Pastrone, a Silicon Valley resident who has been a volunteer with WfWI for 15 years, since she started sponsoring women, the idea that resonated with her was a cookbook. But not just any cookbook. A cookbook that tells the story of the women helped by Women for Women. 'That's really the whole philosophy of this book, ' says Lauri. 'If many of us can help one person it does make a difference.' A cookbook that shares their culture, traditions, and most of all, favorite recipes. Share is rich with pictures that tell the story of the women their lives, their families, their day to day existence. You meet 16 women, all of whom have been through the WfWI program.--Mary Orlin "The Huffington Post, 12/10/13 ""
