The Library Cookbook

Or to be more precise, the St Andrew’s Cathedral School Library Cookbook!
This blog doesn't usually show advertisements (notice the lack of annoying popups and stuff - so just think of this as a community announcement) but the wondrous Connie W. author of the recipe for Tamarillo, Vanilla and Rosewater Jam was associated for some time with the SACS Library Team who have spent almost three years collecting, writing, testing and revising over a hundred mouth-watering recipes for their cookbook, which boasts the following features:
  • An international selection of traditional dishes
  • Spectacular food for special occasions
  • Simple satisfying meals for the whole family
  • All recipes tested by home cooks
  • Step-by-step instructions written by educators
All profits from the sale of The Library Cookbook will be used to support the work of  Room to Read - a global organisation seeking to transform the lives of millions of  children in the developing world by focusing on literacy and gender equality in  education.
Founded on the belief that "World Change Starts with Educated Children",  Room to Read works in collaboration with local communities, partner organisations and  governments to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and to ensure girls have the skills and support needed to complete their secondary education. Since 2000, Room to Read has impacted the lives of more than  four million children in Asia and Africa and aims to reach 10 million children by 2015.

  1. Oh wow, had no idea that SACS were working on this, and they would of been while Josh was still there. Quite interesting they haven't been emailing past student contact emails to promote the book. SACS staff if you are reading this please take note!!

    Sort of giggling that I was part of the SACS community for 9 years and finding this out through a fellow blogger and not my network, LOL!

    Great cause, and I am sure it is a fabulous book, SACS tend to do things very well.

  2. Truly is a small world! I bought two copies today and it's a quality production, A4 paperback of 148 pages with colour photographs and full of recipes from cultures all over the world.
