Buy Cookbooks for Charity!

I wanted to let you all know about a wonderful opportunity to simultaneously buy a great cookbook and donate to charity.

If you’re anything like me, you probably own several (thousand) cookbooks already. When I found out that making most of my gluten-free food from scratch was going to be tastier and cheaper than buying it, I went on a lengthy hunt for books that had recipes that I would want to make over and over again. Blogs certainly helped, and that is actually how I ran across Mike and his site that includes a listing of gluten-free blogs as they are updated, Gluten Free News. It’s like a giant RSS feed of GF blogs…so awesome. Anyway, Mike and his wife wrote a book called Gluten Free & Wheat Free Gourmet Desserts, self published it, and are selling it on their website.

Here’s the great part: Mike is donating all the money for the WHOLE of 2009 from the sale of the book to charity, either regional or local food banks or homeless shelters. There is a great entry explaining why he’s doing this on his blog here.

I really admire Mike’s generosity and his heartfelt desire to help others in these turbulent economic times. I just ordered a copy of the book, which you can do here. If you are looking for a gift for a gluten-free friend, yourself, or just want to help Mike and get a beautifully photographed cookbook in the process, please go order your copy soon!
