From Our World To Your Plate - Find out more about this beautiful cookbook and WIN a signed copy! (CLOSED)


I recently had the opportunity to meet the ladies behind the cookbook From Our World To Your Plate. Maria Barakat, Radia Si Youcef and Ghalia Abbas, whose kids all attend the Jumeirah Baccalaureate School in Dubai, have collected over 150 recipes and compiled them in this fantastic book, the proceeds of which will go entirely to Dubai Cares for the welfare of needy children.

The three of them started in October of 2012 and by May 2013, they had the book printed and bound, on the shelves of Kinokuniya. That's quite an achievement as all three are full time mothers and homemakers and were doing this solely for charity. They've worked on the book night and day and their hard work shows! Everything from photography and graphic design, to compilation & editing has been done entirely by the three of them alone.

The book is a labour of love with recipes contributed by several JBS moms who hail from all corners of the world, making this a real international medley of recipes. What's heartwarming is that these aren't overly complicated recipes you would find online or in some famous chef's book! But instead these are recipes of dishes that other women like you and I cook in their homes and are loved and appreciated by their families.

The book is available at Kinokuniya in The Dubai Mall and Book Munch, Al Wasl Square.
It is priced at 110 AED and every single dirham is going to needy kids around the world via Dubai Cares.

I asked Ghalia, Radia and Maria to sign my copy of FOWTYP and I'm giving that away to one lucky reader.
