I know. Another bloggers' cookbook. I have no idea if these things are ever very profitable.
This one's a benefit project for Doctors Without Borders, a huge gesture of support coordinated by one of my favorite *mad* bloggers, Kathy Flake of What Do I Know? She and Ginger Mayerson of The Hackenblog put it together in response to the earthquake in Pakistan last October, and what a heroic effort it is.
It's called And They Cook, Too.
I've got a completely discombobulated recipe in the book, and if you read I'm Mad and I Eat every now and then, you'll know that sounds just about right for me.
It's a recipe for a vegan avocadolemono soup. It was actually pretty good; you might want to try it.
But you might also want to try some of the recipes from other contributors, and (ahem) I find myself in some really stellar company. I'll list a few of the superstars I'm rubbing elbows with in the book:
Jeanne d'Arc of Body and Soul
Jenonymous, guest blogger at Steve Gilliard's The News Blog
Meenakshi Agarwal of Hooked on Heat
Gavin M., contributor to Sadly, No!
And lots more.
Recipes are all over the board: Saltimbocca, Key Lime Pie, Pork Fried Rice, Hot Chocolate, The Platonic Ideal of Sauerkraut — just to name a few.
The writing is wry and spirited, and even if you never cook a dish from the book... Well...
Aw, c'mon. Please buy it.
