JBS Parents Make A Stir With Cookbook Fundraiser
Dubai, UAE - Thursday 23 May 2013: Parents from Jumeira Baccalaureate School (JBS), A Taaleem School have recently come together to develop a cookbook to raise money for Dubai Cares, a philanthropic organization working to improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries. The cookbook titled ‘From Our World To Your Plate’ was unveiled today at Kinokuniya, The Dubai Mall where it will be sold.
The cookbook is a collection of recipes gathered from parents and teachers at Jumeira Baccalaureate School. The idea started as a group of friends sharing food, and evolved into an exquisite book filled with recipes from all around the world. The cookbook, which is expected to inspire people of all ages, comprises over 150 recipes, and saw people sharing recipes that have been part of their families for generations.
Producing this book not only brought the parents of JBS together and created lifelong friendships, but also aims to support Dubai Cares, the UAE based philanthropic organization that is close to the parents’ hearts. The parents are blessed with happy, healthy and well-fed children and therefore the aim was to find a charity that improves the lives of children who are not as fortunate.
Mrs Si Youcef, one of the founders of the cookbook said: “Creating the cookbook involved hard work such as preparing the food, styling, photography, graphic design and editing. In spite of this, it has been an absolute joy putting together this precious book, especially knowing that children, just like our own, somewhere in the world, will benefit. It would not have been possible without all of the recipe contributors and advertisers.”
Supporting charitable causes is a priority for Jumeira Baccalaureate School and its community, which intends to provide in every way possible so that children in developing countries gain access to quality primary education.
