The recipes in Unichef have been culled from the world's finest international chefs, representing cuisines from around the globe. Assembled by Hilary Gumbel, each recipe is accompanied by the chef's personal story, a narrative about his or her relationship to food, their memories, cultural associations, and the moments that have shaped their passion for creative cooking. The goal of Unichef is to expose children and adults to the diverse foods, tastes, and culinary customs of the world around them. There is more to Unichef than the recipes, personal photographs and remembrances: with each book sold, proceeds generated will be donated by the author to The U.S. Fund for UNICEF. The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) works in 190 countries and territories worldwide to save and improve the children's lives by providing health care and immunizations, clean water, sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. The generosity of these chefs, who have donated their stories and culinary expertise to this cause, will be perpetuated by your purchase. When we cook with others, we create more than just a meal we generate love, community, and mutual understanding. This collection is sure to expand palettes, minds, and hearts, providing nourishment of all kinds for years to come.
