“I’m so excited to introduce you all to @bake_for_beirut. This is a project that we’ve been working on for the past couple of months that is so very close to my heart,” Rose Adam wrote when she announced the book on her Instagram account earlier this week.
She said that the book features “a collection of Middle Eastern-inspired and traditional recipes from some of our favorite chefs and cooks to raise funds for the people of Lebanon affected by the recent explosion, with all proceeds going to charity.”
All proceeds from the book, launching on October 20th, will go to two NGOs supporting relief efforts in Beirut: The Lebanese Food Bank and Steps of Hope.
