Free Cookbook for a Great Cause

February 27th, 2008


I’m sad that I didn’t hear about this earlier, because I would have been plugging it all month.   But I wandered over to Pinch My Salt today, and found a blog post suggesting that everyone immediately go download a new, free  e-cookbook made by Barilla, called The Celebrity Italian Table!

Ok, you’re thinking, I already have more than enough cookbooks, do I need one more?  And here are three reasons why, in fact, you do:

1. It’s an e-cookbook, so it won’t take up any space in your kitchen or on your bookshelf unless you print it.

2. It’s actually quite lovely, the pictures are great, and any collection of Italian recipes compiled by Mario Batali is bound to be pretty good (my favorite, so far, has to be the fettuccini with pumpkin and bread crumbs, which seems to be a variation on my favorite dish at Babbo)!  And did I mention that it’s free?

3. Most importantly, for every person who downloads the book, Barilla will donate $1 to America’s Second Harvest, to invest either in their national fight against hunger, or to their local program for your area.

Barilla will keep donating until the end of March or until 100,000 cookbooks have been downloaded, so go get yours today!  This is such a great campaign for everyone involved — I can’t think of a single reason why every one of you who reads this post shouldn’t go download the cookbook right now!

    I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts.  Keep up the good work.  I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader.  Looking forward to reading more from you.

    Emily — No, it was at Saks when I went shopping before Valentine’s day.  I was looking for a picture of pasta for this entry, but I couldn’t find one!  So I thought orange trees were sort of Italian… maybe?

    I couldn’t get the registration form to work on either of my browsers. Maybe you can e-mail me the book if I still can’t get it to work?

    I like your blog.  I wish I found it 2 years ago!  The eCookbook offer sounded great!  I am perusing to find a recipe to try.
