Menu for Hope III


It seems time has been going faster than I expected and before I even got a chance to say 'I'm late', I was actually running late.
Such a shame I haven't been able to participate to Menu For Hope.

Menu For Hope is a wonderful event - created by the lovely Pim over at Chez Pim - and enables food (and wine) bloggers to raise money for a great cause.
Last year, 17 000$ were raised and given to UNICEF.

"This year, Menu for Hope III raises funds to support the UN World Food Programme, which provides hunger relief for needy people worldwide. To us Food Bloggers, food is a joy. On our blogs, we celebrate food as a delight or even an indulgence. Unfortunately, for many others who share our world do not share that privilege. For them, food is a matter of survival. This "Menu for Hope" is our small way to help." says Pim.

To tell the truth I have high expectations about 2006 fundraising as the raised sum reaches 15 000$ at the moment I write this post but also because this year prizes look wonderful.

I did spot a few favourites:
- a photography lesson with Heidi of 101 cookbooks [UW 10]
- lovely amai tea sweet cookies [EU 31]
- a dinner for four at Iggy's in Singapore [AP 01]
- a cute tea set [AP 42]
- the chance to visit Paris sweetest places with the funniest guy best chocolate expert you could ever dream of [EU 08]
