Menu for Hope 4 - Lunches for Lesotho

This is the fourth year that Pim is calling on everyone to donate prizes to be raffled off to raise funds for people in need around the world, an event called Menu for Hope. This year, in the project administered by the Word Food Program, all proceeds will go a school lunch program for a community in Lesotho, Africa. Pim sent a box of disposible cameras to the community and asked them to take pictures themselves. Go to her blog and take a look at these beautiful photographs, friends. They are are simply stunnng and add a really needed human dimension to our holiday charitable giving.

The genius in this event is that not only can you give to keep these children fed at school, but you can also win prizes! In a nutshell, each $10 donation puts you in the running to win the prize of your choice, from a whole list of great ones donated by chefs, foodbloggers, and food professionals around the world. Think of each $10 you donate as a ticket to win. You choose the prizes! Winners will be announced on January 9th. To see all of the prizes worldwide, see Pim's global list, and to see the prizes donated by European food bloggers, go to see Fanny at Foodbeam, our regional host this year.

Prize No. EU21 - Shipped Anywhere in the World

Imagine this pretty vintage print advertising Beurre de Normandie in your kitchen! I have got to figure out a way to make a photo do this magnificent vintage print justice! Printed on parchment, the document is about 70 years old. This is not a reproduction, but an original document, printed by Lepelletier. Value: priceless! It would add the perfect touch to any butter loving cook's kitchen or diningroom! The document measures 12 inches square (30 x 30 cm), although the image floating in the center itself measures 9" x 10 1/4" (23 x 26 cm).
