Blasta Books: The United Nations of Cookies
Cultures and cuisines have many differences, but one thing they all have in common is cookies. No matter the country, cookies evoke fond childhood memories and feature in many holidays and celebrations. But there’s more to this book than just a sweet treat. Author Jess Murphy is an official High-Profile Supporter of the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency), with whom she works to raise awareness and to advocate for refugees. She has worked with refugees around Ireland as well as immigrants who have made Ireland their home to collect and share their recipes. Meanwhile, author Eoin Cluskey has tested all the recipes at his Bread 41 bakery in Dublin. This is a little book with a big heart, showing that food knows no borders.
All author proceeds will be donated to UNHCR.
