We have been asking the world's best chefs a personal question: "What do you cook for the people you love?" Their answers and their personal recipes are the basis for a unique series of international cookbooks that raise money and awareness to fight poverty and hunger. Now, over one hundred of the world's finest cooks, chefs, bakers and food artisans drawn from the New Zealand, Australian, South African and British editions, are joining forces to create one extraordinary book, for one very special cause. Featuring chefs, cooks and food heroes from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, and Great Britain, Made With Love is not only a joyous culinary celebration of cuisine from around the world but will also provide funds to help improve the lives of those who are in need of food and who need to be freed from poverty. All royalties from the sales of the book will be given to the Nelson Mandela Foundation to develop and support community food and agricultural projects to aid in the upliftment of the impoverished through food sustainability and empowerment.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation has partnered with Food & Trees for Africa, an organization that advances and promotes climate change action, sustainable natural resource management, permaculture food security and organic farming. On the occasion of his 90th birthday, Nelson Mandela said: "The world remains beset by so much suffering, poverty and deprivation. It is in your hands to make of our world a better one for all, especially the poor, vulnerable and marginalised."
