A local food community cookbook

Apr 24th, 2020 | by Eat Drink Indy | Jolene’s Blog, News

If you’ve followed me over the years, you know that I love community cookbooks.

I have a variety of favorites, and I always feel like this type of cookbook is where you’ll find the recipe that real people are really making. These are the dishes that people bring to their friends when they need comfort, the favorite recipes that friends ask for, the must-have dishes that always show up at pitch-ins and potlucks.

I’ve always thought that an Indy local food community cookbook would be fun, and so now I’m going to do it — and I’m asking for your help!

Please submit a recipe or two for an Eat Drink Indy community cookbook. I’ve got some great help from Susan Decker Media to create a downloadable e-cookbook, and I hope to have a printed version too. Funds raised from the sale of the book will benefit a new not-for-profit, the Equilibre Foundation, that aims to help the local food community get access to health and wellness support. The hospitality biz can be tough, and Equilibre hopes to encourage a holistic approach to wellness, in these challenging COVID-19 times and beyond.

So I hope you’ll contribute to the cookbook! I’m looking forward to reading your recipes, sharing them and helping the food community too.

Here’s a link to the submission form.
