Yay! I was hoping we could do something like this! When I started the Recipe ideas group I was thinking about recipes more geared to low fat, low sodium and low sugar for our boys to stay healthy. Would that be premise of the book or would it be a general cookbook? Let me know what I can do to help.
Thanks for getting the ball rolling!
I thought this important to share.
Did you know that in Scotland, Action Duchenne has recently created a cookbook fundraiser called The Caledonian Kitchen. The ISBN is: 978-978-0-956189 but I couldn't find it on Amazon. I ordered it through the website below -- they converted my dollars for me. Funds go for research for a cure for DMD.
Here's the website:
If you search on-line you'll get more related stories.
I treasure this cookbook. The layout is beautiful.
The Table of Contents is below:
A Message from Action Duchenne
Then the recipe sections (3):
Celebrities (they included recipes from 40 prominent figures)
Restaurants (34 award winning chefs from Scottish restaurants)
Supporters (50 Scots across the country)
Starts, Soups & Salads
Desserts & Baking
Sponsors (ads in color from anything from restaurants, breweries, and other businesses)
Notes (just blank lined pages for what you might want to jot down)
What I like about what they've done is provided recipes not only from each other but also from Celebrities and Restaurants. I think that would make people really want to own this book. We could include in the Celebrities category, some of the House and Senate (Congress members) we advocate to -- I think all would gladly provide a recipe -- maybe even President Obama. That would get more attention and probably some free publicitiy. Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown provided a recipe for Steak Pie - yum! A small photograph and their signature is on the page with the recipe.
A person active with The Caledonian Kitchen cookbook project is veteran actress Eileen McCallum who, like me, has two grandsons with DMD.
They've kind of paved the way.
I haven't had much time to check out the PPMD forum lately but we just did a cookbook thru Morris Press and we're from a small town in Wisconsin so we ordered 400 cookbooks and have 220 recipes from family & friends. Our cookbook title is "Reciipes from the Heart for PPMD". All proceeds will go to PPMD and it says so in the intro pages. We also have a page for info about PPMD and about my son. We're selling them for $10 or $12 + $3 shipping for mail orders. We are projecting $5.00 profit for each book sold at $10. We had 80 sold before we got the books and they're selling pretty well. They turned out very nice. We got the discount doing typensave.com and I entered all the recipes.
