Exeter, NH (PRWEB) December 7, 2005 -–
Internet shellfish information and recipe site http://www.the-savvy-shellfish-lover.com is asking seafood lovers from around the world to donate their best shellfish recipes this holiday season for a good cause. The submissions will be compiled in an ebook titled The Savvy Shellfish Lover’s Help Save the World Cookbook, to be sold from the website in early 2006. The site will donate 100% of the proceeds from sales of the ebook to three major charitable organizations: Save the Children, The American Red Cross, and The Salvation Army.
According to website founder Vincent Czaplyski, “This is a great opportunity for people to help others in need through the simple act of sharing a special shellfish recipe. After a cataclysmic year of hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters, these three charities have really made a difference to a lot of people. This is just one small way we can make sure they’ll be there each time they’re needed.”
Everyone with an interest in cooking and eating shellfish is invited to participate, from rank cooking amateurs to professional chefs. Donated recipes must include shellfish as an ingredient, and must be available for publication with the permission of the copyright holder (if any).
Besides shellfish recipes, Czaplyski is also soliciting short articles, essays and personal anecdotes related to shellfish and cooking for inclusion in the cookbook. “There’s something special about the power of the foods we love to bring us together. For some of us that applies to reading about them too. I’m hoping people from around the globe will contribute a little bit of themselves to this unique cookbook, and help three great causes at the same time.”
Anyone who submits one or more recipes or articles will receive ongoing updates on the project’s status, as well as a complimentary copy of the cookbook once it’s published.
