Nothing brings people together better than the sharing of food.

The recipes in this uplifting book include healthy, everyday recipes, nutritious recipes for family meals, recipes for sharing, and recipes for celebrating. Contributed by women living in the war-torn countries in which Women for Women International operate, these recipes are also accompanied by dishes shared by internationally known chefs, humanitarians, and philanthropists.

Dishes range from authentic Afghani bichak pastries and Congolese sticky doughnuts to spicy cashew and tomato soup, Indonesian beef rendang, and orange-scented almond cake. Interspersed throughout are the inspiring stories from the women whose lives have been changed through the intervention of Women for Women International.

About the Author

Women for Women International was founded by Zainab Salbi in 1993. Dedicated to working with survivors of conflict, the charity's core belief is that stronger women build stronger nations and that, with adequate access to information and resources, socially excluded women can lead change toward stable societies.

Alison Oakervee is the food editor of Waitrose, a magazine for one of the UK's leading supermarkets.

Praise For…

“This book includes recipes from world-class chefs and influential humanitarians, as well as lesser-known heroes and the women whose lives have been improved by the charity, and draws on the freshest of ingredients to produce simple yet delicious food. The chapters reflect the importance of caring for our personal well-being, nurturing our loved ones, supporting our community, developing fair and sustainable trade and last, but not least, uniting in celebration.” (Meryl Streep From The Foreword)
