In the midst of creating my own ebook for Haiti (which will be out by the end of the weekend! Check back =D), Julie asked if I would be interested in contributing to the Blog Aid Cookbook. Of course, I said yes! The cookbook has been on sale for a couple of days and has already sold more than 800 copies. I hope that you will buy one as well. All proceeds go to Haiti, via the Red Cross and Doctors without Borders.
The book brings together 27 food writers and bloggers. I’m absolutely honoured to be a part of it. In fact, the book contains two recipes of mine that are brand-spanking-new. Never-before seen. Very exciting!!
The book is being printed by West Canadian Graphics and Blurb. The system is print-on-demand, so you choose which one you want: hardcover for $50 or softcover for $25, then they print it and send it to your house! Also, both printing companies are going to match the money raised, up to $10 000. Then, if you buy it before the 12th of February, the Canadian government will match that!
Both versions of the books are here. When there, you can look through the previews and checkout some of the book, which happens to be gorgeous.
Not only did Julie put hours and hours of work into it, but designers Beth and Cathryn did as well. Being in the process of completing the ebook, I completely understand how much work it is, especially in this short amount of time.
The group is amazing as well. Backseat Gourmet, Blue Jean Gourmet, Celiac Teen (thats me!!), Chef Michael Smith, Christie’s Corner, Dana McCauley, Dinner with Julie, Emily Richards, Food for My Family, Food in Jars, Gluten-Free Girl and The Chef, Healthy Delicious, Kitchen Scraps, Lottie + Doof, MattBites, My Baking Addiction, Recipe Girl, Savory Sweet Life, Seven Spoons, Sweet Amandine, Tartelette, Tea & Cookies, The Pink Peppercorn, The Traveler’s Lunchbox, Tongue-N-Cheeky, Under the High Chair, and Weelicious.
So, go buy a copy. The recipes are phenomenal and the cause is fantastic.
Just don’t forget about my ebook. It will be amazing as well.
Note: None of these books are completely gluten-free, but they do contain GF recipes!
