A Menu For Hope Continues…

A Menu For Hope continues on–and blog readers are giving generously to help out the school lunch program of Lesotho.

I know it is hard to choose among so many amazing prizes, but do give it a shot and buy a raffle ticket or two or three. They make great gifts for those hard to buy for folks who also happen to be inclined toward charitable works.

And if you win–or your gift recipient wins–that is just icing on the cake.

Here are some of my favorite prizes–meaning ones I am going to buy tickets for–which you might like too:

From Chez PimUW11 Lunch with Howard McGee: Harold is the original Culinary Nerd. And I mean that in the fondest sense possible–author of On Food and Cooking, which is one of my favorite reference books of all time. I would love to sit, eat and geek out about food with Harold. (I am sure that every other Culinary Nerd food blog reader in the world would also love to geek out with Harold! Who wouldn’t?)

From Becks And Posh: UW32The English Afternoon Tea Package, which includes a beautiful teapot, English preserves, Twining’s tea, handmade scones, and all sorts of other lovelies. I want to bid on it not only because I love tea, but because I want to know how Sam makes English style clotted cream here in the US. Sam is so clever–she is making sure that everyone who bids on her prize wins.

From Quick Indian Cooking: UK12 Indian Cooking Bible Published in India. Malinka says she will send a copy of National Indian Association of Women Cookbook, a book only available in India, anywhere in the world. She also says it has taught generations of Indian women how to cook–and that is a great endorsement. I -really- want to get my hands on a copy of it, so I’ll definitely be bidding on it.

Those are my favorites so far–and of course, there is always the prize I am sponsoring–A Gift of Indian Spices.

The total raised so far this year is $30,850.00.

Let’s keep up the good work!

  1. The gradual influence continues–

    I posted ‘free rice’ all around (and play compulsively myself) and now you’ve forced me to help school lunch in Africa.

    I’m proud to know you.
