Peko Peko: A Charity Cookbook for Japan is a collection of nearly 50 family friendly Japanese and Japanese-inspired recipes published by Blurb, 100% of the profits of which will be donated to charity relief in Japan.
On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake shook the ground underwater off of the coast of Japan. The earthquake, one of the most powerful on recorded history, rocked North-eastern Honshu, the main island of Japan, and triggered a deadly tsunami. Close to 10,000 people lost their lives. Many more thousands are missing.
The self-published book is a joint effort between Stacie Billis of One Hungry Mama, Rachael Hutchings of La Fuji Mama and Marc Matsumoto of No Recipes, and a team of contributors that includes some of the most influential food bloggers and cookbook authors of this time, Peko Peko is a celebration of the Japanese people, their food and culture.
All profits from sales of Peko Peko will be donated to the GlobalGiving Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund.
