A quick post today (I’m still on holiday) just to tell you about a project which a friend of mine is involved with. Called the Happy Cookbook, it’s a collection of recipes submitted by chefs including Atul Kochhar, Prue Leith and Tom Kitchin, celebrities like Carol Smilie, Chris Cusiter, and Fred MacAuley, as well as a selection of local restaurants (The Marcliffe, Tolbooth, Oryza Sushi, La Stella and more).
All proceeds go to two local charities:
* CLAN – Cancer Link Aberdeen & North (covers Grampian, Orkney and Shetland)
* ARCHIE – Aberdeen Childrens Hospital (covers Grampian, Orkney and Shetland)
No expenses will be taken from the sale of the book, every penny of every book sold will go to the charities involved, with the costs being provided by generous sponsorship.
The book’s due to launch early next year. I’ll post a bit more about it then, in the meantime have a look at http://www.happycookbook.org for more information.
