Share: The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity by Meryl Streep

Into the Wild

Read Share: The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity Online Free - 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."

What an amazing (cook)book this is! It is filled with delicious recipes and stories. The recipes do not seem overly complex and the ingredients in most of the recipes are easy to find in local groceries stores (both important to me as I am not an accomplished cook and I live in a rural area). I m...

Disappointing. The back description states that the recipes come from women in countries where Women for Women operates, with a few contributions from celebrities. The reverse is more truthful - the bulk of the recipes are from celebrity chefs and actors, unconnected to the featured countries. Be...
