The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope

Clarkson Potter. Sept. 2023. 304p. ISBN 9780593579077. $35. COOKING
World Central Kitchen is a nonprofit founded by chef Andrés that provides food and healing around the world in times of disaster and plight. This companion cookbook provides a glimpse inside the history, logistics, and the great lengths WCK chefs go to cook for thousands of people multiple times a day, often without basic resources like electricity. Recipes take readers on a journey to a variety of WCK operations around the world, from Haiti to Ukraine. Photography toggles between boots on the ground and gorgeous food images. Preparations are generally designed for four to eight people but can be scaled up, providing variations for use in churches, soup kitchens, VFW halls, and firehouses looking for innovative large-scale cooking. Home cooks with a humanitarian heart will enjoy this journey, learning about the people who make the WCK mission possible and the food that creates healing.
VERDICT Andrés peels back the curtain and reveals how World Central Kitchen feeds the hungry and displaced around the world and shares the recipes that will also provide comfort in one’s own kitchen.
