Looks Good, Tastes Great – Jewish Culinary Favourites
Action Duchenne launches new Cook Book “Looks Good, Tastes Great – Jewish Culinary Favourites” to raise funds
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy charity launches second cook book after success of ‘Caledonian Kitchen’ with all proceeds to support research
Action Duchenne has launched its newly published cook book, “Looks Good, Tastes Great – Jewish Culinary Favourites” this month. The cook book features recipes from celebrities and well known personalities in the Jewish community, including Nigella Lawson, Michael Grade, Maureen Lipman, Ed Miliband, Michael Winner and David Pleat. All proceeds from the book will raise money for the charity, which has an introduction by Denise Phillips, professional chef and cookery writer and foreword written by Helena Bonham Carter, patron of the charity.
According to Hollywood actor and Patron of Action Duchenne, Helena Bonham Carter:
“So many celebrities from within the Jewish Community have donated recipes for Looks Good, Tastes Great, but the book will appeal to anyone with a love of cooking. Jewish and British cooking are closely linked and a dish celebrating its 150th anniversary this year – fish and chips – is known to have been a Jewish invention from the East End of London. So forget the calories and enjoy the recipes! At the same time, you’ll be supporting Action Duchenne and its vital work in bringing forward treatments for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.”
The official launch of the book is to be held at Let’s Meat restaurant in Borehamwood on Tuesday 16th February 2010, when guests will enjoy a three course meal with a cookery demonstration by Denise Phillips. They will have the opportunity to have their own copy signed by Denise, who trained with renowned restauranteur Prue Leith and who has written four books, including Modern Jewish cooking with Style and Jewish Mamas Kitchen.
Nick Catlin, CEO of Action Duchenne said;
“It is fantastic to see such a worthwhile project come to fruition with this book launch. Not only does the book feature genuinely desirable recipes, it is a great way to raise more funds for our charity. Our previously launched cook book Caledonian Kitchen sold over 8000 copies, which was a tremendous boost to our fund raising efforts. From the funds raised we have been able to support scientific and clinical studies that have a strong chance of therapeutic treatments being developed. We extend thanks to all of those who have helped achieve the successes that we have seen so far in our aim to help improve the quality of life for patients living with Duchenne.”
Copies of the Looks Good, Tastes Great – Jewish Culinary Favourites will be available to order from the Action Duchenne on 020 8556 9955
