The Kitchen Without Borders – Cookbook Giveaway

Enter our US/CA giveaway to win one of two copies of The Kitchen Without Borders: Recipes and Stories from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs by Eat Offbeat Chefs.

This special book began as a Kickstarter campaign which then found a publisher: Workman. As an early backer of this project, I was fortunate to receive the book in June of 2020 instead of on publication date, March 2, 2021. Profiles of the chefs are shared from Eat Offbeat along with recipes from their ethnic backgrounds. Chef Dhuha’s Potato kibbeh (Iraq), Chef Rachana’s Samosas (Nepal), and Chef Larissa’s Red pepper soup (Central African Republic) are just some examples of the dishes in this lovely book filled with photographs.

I read hundreds of cookbooks each year. The titles that strike a chord in me are those that bring the world to me. We need to hear the voices of our refugee and immigrant population, we need to listen and learn from other cultures and embrace our differences and learn from them. We need to knock down walls and build pathways to acceptance of those small things that make us special. Food is a great equalizer.

We all need nourishment and each of us brings something to the table that is uniquely our own whether it be sharing a dish from our culture, a story to contribute to the conversation, a bottle of our favorite wine, a flower for the cook, or a smile to brighten a day. The Kitchen Without Borders book is a beautiful testament to the brilliance that each of us, whether refugee, immigrant or native, has to offer.
