    I love to read the stories of the people and places where the recipes were developed. Beautifully written and outstanding photography. The recipes are fairly simple and easy to make, though there have been a few where I have had to go in search of ingredients, but it was well worth it.

Lauri, and 4 collaborators, put together a cookbook, called Share, that she was promoting, and that VHOB was highlighting in the store. After listening to Lauri, several of us bought the cookbook - and more. What is Share all about? Women for Women International is an organization whose mission is to support women in a number of war-torn countries. The idea is to give women training over the course of a year that allows them to be independent and productive members of their society when that year is up. By paying $30/month for one year (plus a $30 start-up fee), you are giving these women a chance to turn their lives around. Joni and I were certainly sold. What does the cookbook consist of? There are numerous recipes from: nationally-renowned chefs, celebrities, and 2 women from each of the 8 war-torn countries. In fact, Meryl Streep wrote the forward for the cookbook. So, not only are you supporting the organization by buying a cookbook ($40) or maybe even taking the next step by supporting a woman from the program, but you're also getting a beautiful, coffee table book with fantastic recipes. Let WfWi explain about the cookbook and the program: Share – the cookbook that celebrates our common humanity Since 1993, Women for Women International (WfWI) has transformed the lives of nearly 400,000 women survivors of war. About the Cookbook  An uplifting and beautifully designed cookbook that includes a collection of nearly 100 recipes and inspiring stories from women who have gone from victims to active citizens.  Foreword by Meryl Streep.  International chefs participating include: Alice Waters, Jamie Oliver, Yotam Ottolenghi, René Redzepi, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jesse Ziff Cool, Maggie Beer, Judy Wicks, Susan Spicer, Greg Higgins, Ann Cooper, and Nora Pouillon.  Activists, philanthropists and humanitarians contributing recipes include: Aung San Suu Kyi, Nelson Mandela, Sir Richard Branson, Desmond Tutu, Mary Robinson, Paul McCartney, Peter Gabriel, Muhammad Yunus, Ashley Judd, Emma Thompson, Annie Lennox, Livia Firth, Christiane Amanpour, Ben & Jerry, Kate Spade, Trudie Styler, Jennifer Buffet, Sheryl WuDunn, Craig Kielburger, Alice Walker, Dame Judi Dench, Lisa Shannon, Mia Farrow, Robin Wright and Helen Bamber, among others.  Published by Kyle Books, Share is being sold in the US, UK, Ireland, Romania, Croatia, Holland, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Lebanon, Finland, Iceland, Denmark, Canada, South Africa, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany (translated).  Share is the 1st cookbook to be placed on the JP Morgan Summer Reading List (2013).  Sold at Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores and on Amazon.  All royalties and 100% of publisher’s profits will go to the work of Women for Women International. Goals  To generate new sponsorships for women victims of war through sales and publicity of the cookbook and to raise money for ongoing training programs. What Is Women for Women International?  WfWI provide victims of war the opportunity to transform their lives through a year-long skills training programme, which includes job skills and business training to earn a living.  Women in the programme also receive tools and support to deal with the social and emotional consequences of war. A key component is information regarding their rights -- what they are and how to fight for them in their homes, their communities and their nations.  Through WfWI’s extensive sponsorship programme, sponsors pledge $30 (£22) per month and exchange letters with their assigned ‘sister.’  Women graduate with a breadth of skills. The variety of trades offered include: organic farming, small animal husbandry, tile production, tailoring, cooking, bee keeping, bread making, and more.  WfWI has training centres in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, the Congo, South Sudan, Nigeria, Rwanda, Afghanistan and Iraq. (WfWI has centres only in countries of conflict or post-conflict.) Women for Women International’s Scope  WfWI has corporate partnerships and collaborations with many organisations. e.g., Google, Neal’s Yard, Harper’s Bazaar, Kate Spade, Browns and others.  Zainab Salbi, Founder of WfWI, frequently appears on CNN, the BBC, and other international networks and was on Oprah many times. In addition to receiving the Conrad Hilton Humanitarian prize, she has been named a member of the Clinton Global Initiative by former President Clinton. For more information in the USA, contact Tracy Craighead +1 (845) 260-2672 or +1 (914) 533-2079 [email protected] Sold at Barnes & Noble and independent bookstores and on Amazon. Do yourself a favor and, at least, buy this book. Your $40 will get you an amazing cookbook and will do a lot more good than that. And, if you feel particularly moved, you may want to consider the 1-year sponsorship, at $30/month. I guarantee that either way, you will feel great.

    I have been reading this book at a time of year of great food indulgence so it was refreshing to get this amazing perspective on food for survival, community gathering and cultural sustainability.

The book was produced by Women for Women International which works to empower women from war torn countries to gain life and business skills to allow for their empowerment. There are incredible stories of endurance and strength in the face of abject poverty and extreme violence in this beautifully presented cook book. Humanitarians, chefs, actors and musicians are among the voices included in this book as well as the women who have been sponsored in countries such as Rwanda, Bosnia, Iraq and South Sudan. The recipes, too, are wonderful with photos of the sharing of meals, the celebration of unique cuisine and the efforts to create sustainable communities through the growing and cooking of local ingredients. Meryl Street provides a forward for the book and other very familiar names include Nelson Mandela, Ashley Judd, Aung San Suu Kyi, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Emma Thompson and Maggie Beer.

    What an amazing (cook)book this is! It is filled with delicious recipes and stories. The recipes do not seem overly complex and the ingredients in most of the recipes are easy to find in local groceries stores (both important to me as I am not an accomplished cook and I live in a rural area). I marked quite a few to try. Many of the recipes are vegetarian. The stories included are so inspiring. I am looking into sponsoring a sister in the future through Women for Women International.

The photos are gorgeous, both of the food and of the women being impacted by WfWI. The statistics on the countries highlighted are very interesting and I am so glad they were included. Everyone should buy this book!

    Disappointing. The back description states that the recipes come from women in countries where Women for Women operates, with a few contributions from celebrities. The reverse is more truthful - the bulk of the recipes are from celebrity chefs and actors, unconnected to the featured countries. Besides the pretty food pictures, it has one of my pet peeves: photos of people and places without captions.

    There is so much to enjoy about Share: The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity. The recipes are delicious with simple and healthy ingredients. The stories of survival and successful mentoring made me want to learn more about Women For Women International. The collaboration of so many individuals dedicated to improving our world is truly inspiring.
