Menu for HOPE III

>> Monday, December 11, 2006

…..To share and to give…..

I would like to use several lines of Imagine by John Lennon to begin this post:

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world”

The dream of sharing and caring partially comes true with Menu for Hope, a food project which aims to raise funds to help the less unfortunate people in the world. In 2004, the project raised funds to aid Tsunami victims in Asia. Last year, US$17,000 was donated to UNICEF during the campaign.

This year, continuing from the spirits of sharing and giving, the campaign hopes to raise even more funds for the United Nations World Food Programme. But this aim is only achieved if we together open our hearts and donate to the program. The amount may not be large individually, but together we can make a difference…

My donation is the latest cookbook from Australian famous and beloved chef Donna Hay – INSTANT ENTERTAINING. The book is a wonderful collection of easy yet delicious recipes for every occasion – from dinner to luncheon or BBQ. With this, you can impress your guests without spending all of your precious time in the kitchen! I have used one of the recipes in this book to create the wonderful mini Date & Almond Cake with Orange Syrup. And yes, I am prepared to send the prize to anywhere in the world.

My prize code is AP21
