On the aftermath of the disastrous events in Japan a group of food bloggers and food writers headed by Stacie Billis, Rachael Hutchings and Marc Matsumoto joined efforts to write a cookbook to support Japan’s recovery. The result of this amazing collaboration is now available for purchase, it’s called Peko Peko: Family-Friendly Japanese Recipes, a softcover cookbook that offers 120 full-color pages packed with gorgeous photography and 59 family friendly Japanese and Japanese-inspired recipes contributed by some of the best food writers, bloggers, and photographers. Peko Peko also includes a glossary of over 50 Japanese ingredients, plus an essay on bringing Japanese food and other global cuisines to the family table.
A recipe and double-page photo for strawberry-green tea daifuku by yours truly appears in the book. Think of it as a mochi fit for the Gods, you don’t want to miss that.
Peko Peko is available for $29.95 through Blurb.com. $11.45 of every sale will go to the GlobalGiving Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. The rest of the money covers printing costs. Nobody involved in making the book will profit from Peko Peko, including Blurb. I’m heading there now to purchase my own copy. Thank you in advance for your support.
