The Kitchen Without Borders Cookbook

The Kitchen without Borders Cookbook joins Snoop Dogg’s Cookbook in our great gifts for cooks list!

The Kitchen without Borders, a collection of Recipes and Stories from Refugee and Immigrant Chefs, is a cookbook that was made by refugees and immigrants from all over the world. One of my friends got it for his wife as one of anniversary gifts and now her cooking is next level!

This cookbook was made using recipes from the chefs of Eat Offbeat, “a catering company staffed by immigrants and refugees who have found a new home and new hope through cooking.”

The publishers of the book, Workman Publishing, are also donating 2% of the cover price they sell between March 1, 2021 and March 1, 2022. The donations will help the IRC nonprofit humanitarian aid organization.

Helping this company with their nonprofit fundraising efforts just seems like a good win-win to me. Therefore, including this cookbook in the list of great gifts for cooks is a no-brainer even without the marked improvement in my friend’s cooking. 

The Fattoush and Momos recipes may change your life. I never really like salads, but the Fattoush really has me thinking about going back to try the rest of the recipes. The Momos are Indian-style dumplings that really were very surprising to me. They were out of this world!

I never even heard of a Middle Eastern hand pie or Venezualan Cachapas before. Now, I ask my buddy if his wife is baking on a near daily basis. He did tell me that she is making the Nepali Chari Bari Meatballs here soon, so I’m looking forward to that. 

I would say this cookbook would be a great gift for mom, but my mom’s cooking is always a dangerous subject.

The recipes celebrate the culinary traditions of Syria, Iran, Eritrea, Venezuela, Sri Lanka, and more.

Some of the recipes in the cookbook

Discover Iraqi Biryani, a rice dish combining vegetables and plump dried fruits with warming spices. Chari Bari, hand formed meatballs simmered in Nepali- spiced tomato and cashew sauce. Iranian rice with garbanzos, Sri Lankan curry dhal, and Manchurian cauliflower straight from the Himalayas.

More than recipes

This cook book has intimate chef profiles with photographic portraits that offer readers a glimpse into their journeys. Their stories show there is a strong link between food and home; it also shows the connnections that food can help us create.

The Kitchen without Borders cookbook sold in the United States and its territories, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and European Union member states, to the IRC, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing humanitarian aid, relief and resettlement to refugees and other victims of oppression, conflict, or disaster with a minimum contribution of $25,000 USD. For more information, visit rescue.org/cookbook and https://www.workman.com/kwob. No portion of the purchase price is tax-deductible. For additional information about the IRC, see rescue.org.

Helping this company with their nonprofit fundraising efforts just seems like a good win-win to me.

Stress Relief Tool – Failure Is Just Part Of Succeeding

I’ve received a lot of positive feedback about previous articles on reframing fear and reframing failure. Interestingly, fear and failure go hand-in-hand because we are often so fearful of failure. The fact of the matter is that we all fail. And failure builds our resiliency. You can also take steps to minimize failing in the future, such as: learning from failing. Personally, I have learned far more from my many failures than my successes. When you completely understand your failures, you gain better insights
