Erin from Erin's Kitchen reminded us about this year's Menu for Hope III, a food blogging event to raise money for the UN World Food Program.
Food blogger extraordinaire Chez Pim spearheads the charity event. Bloggers from around the world have donated all sorts of food-related gifts; for a $10 donation, you will be given a raffle ticket toward the prize of your choice.
Pim explains it more:
This year, Menu for Hope III raises funds to support the UN World Food Programme, which provides hunger relief for needy people worldwide. To us Food Bloggers, food is a joy. On our blogs, we celebrate food as a delight or even an indulgence. Unfortunately, for many others who share our world do not share that privilege. For them, food is a matter of survival. This "Menu for Hope" is our small way to help.
We have plenty of great prizes, including a chance at a meal of your life at the renown Tetsuya's in Sydney, the 2-Michelin Starred Manresa in California, Iggy's in Singapore, L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon in London, and more. We offer unique experiences, such as a chance to have coffee with Thomas Keller, or even a cup of tea with Harold McGee. There are also lots and lots of cookbooks, including signed and hard to find items. Also on offer are plenty of goodies from all corners of the world, scrumptious tours, and many other delicious experiences.
The online event continues through 6 p.m. on Dec. 22. As for Erin, she is giving away a copy of the Middle Eastern cookbook "Arabesque," as well as a $25 gift certificate to Penzey's Spices.
