21 BC chefs contribute to cookbook to support those in need in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside

The inspirational stories and recipes of 21 prominent chefs are featured in a beautiful new cookbook created by a Vancouver couple, with 100% of proceeds going to fight food insecurity.

Sep 24, 2019 - EightSix Staff

Inspired by their own young sons' heroic efforts to raise $20,000 for a family in need, local couple Jenn Coe and Sherwin Ngan decided to launch their own publishing platform with a focus on food insecurity. After enlisting the help of social entrepreneur and Save On Meats owner Mark Brand and The Curatorialist online magazine founder Hakan Burcuoğlu, Coe and Ngan created Food Stories: A Cookbook for a Cause. Featuring the very personal stories of hardship of 21 BC chefs along with many of their most cherished recipes, one hundred percent of Food Stories' profits will be donated to A Better Life Foundation, Brand's meal program to support those in need in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

Food Stories: A Cookbook for a Cause ($40) can be purchased at Gourmet Warehouse and foodforall.ca.
