Seed to Table Cookbook on TV

Dear Global Giving Friends

This is just a quick note to point you to a video of a live cook-up on TV, using a "township tradition" recipe from our Seed to Table Cookbook!   See the link below

This cookbook was initiated by Uthando (love) a social profit (non-profit) tour agency run by James Fernie, who appears along with the farmer-cooks in the video. His Cape Town tours are unique and every cent of profit goes to social projects including Abalimi. Go visit  www.uthandosa.org for more info on Uthando.

Not mentioned in the video is the fact that the book is co-authored by three wonderful American volunteers and Rotary scholars, Erin, Abby and Toni, who got together with some of our micro-farmers to put a pile of recepies together, using the lovely vegetables that we grow - most of them being table vegetables, common worldwide.

If you like cooking, why dont you buy a cookbook? 

Erin on erinkoepke@gmail.com   and  Abby on akelsener@gmail.com  are also our Agents in USA !  Toni is still in SA. They are selling the books for us at USD15.00 a copy plus mailing.   If you live elsewhere on this beautiful world,  and not the USA, just order a copy from Abalimi on info@abalimi.org.za and it can be air or surface mailed to you. ZAR100 plus postage.

They are lovely Christmas presents! 

Last but not least, thank you one and all, once again,  for your support and your donations.  I am not able to communicate directly with each of you, but PLEASE, if you have a question or concern, contact me on info@abalimi.org.za and I will respond. 

All the very best

Rob Small
