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."

Review quote

Today's recipe is one of the "celebration" in a remarkable new cookbook, Share. Subtitled "The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity," it's a collection of recipes from all over the world, and 100 percent of the profits of the publisher Kyle Books goes to Women for Women International, which since 1993 has been helping women in war-torn countries such as Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina and South Sudan. The more than 100 global recipes come from an interesting mix of people who work with the charity and other humanitarian causes. As actress Meryl Streep writes in the foreword, the "underlying message" of the book is, "For all our apparent diversity -- as individuals, societies and nations -- our actions, however small, have an exponential influence in the world through our shared humanity." Other contributors of recipes, stories and inspiration include women the charity has helped, as well as a crowd of famous people such as Ms. Streep, Christiane Amanpour, Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Bill McKibben, Yotam Ottolenghi and Alice Waters.--Bill Batz Jr. "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 7/14/13 ""
