The underlying message of Share is simple: for all our apparent diversity as individuals, societies and nations our actions, however small, can have an exponential, positive influence both on the world and the lives of others. Nothing more beautifully conveys our interdependence than the food we eat. The recipes featured in this uplifting book provided by contributors who ...more

Last December, Lauri Pastrone came to Village House of Books. Lauri, and 4 collaborators, put together a cookbook, called Share, that she was promoting, and that VHOB was highlighting in the store. After listening to Lauri, several of us bought the cookbook - and more.

What is Share all about? Women for Women International is an organization whose mission is to support women in a number of war-torn countries. The idea is to give women training over the course of a year that allows them to be inde

I have been reading this book at a time of year of great food indulgence so it was refreshing to get this amazing perspective on food for survival, community gathering and cultural sustainability. The book was produced by Women for Women International which works to empower women from war torn countries to gain life and business skills to allow for their empowerment. There are incredible stories of endurance and strength in the face of abject poverty and extreme violence in this beautifully ...more

What an amazing (cook)book this is! It is filled with delicious recipes and stories. The recipes do not seem overly complex and the ingredients in most of the recipes are easy to find in local groceries stores (both important to me as I am not an accomplished cook and I live in a rural area). I marked quite a few to try. Many of the recipes are vegetarian.
The stories included are so inspiring. I am looking into sponsoring a sister in the future through Women for Women International. The photos

Disappointing. The back description states that the recipes come from women in countries where Women for Women operates, with a few contributions from celebrities. The reverse is more truthful - the bulk of the recipes are from celebrity chefs and actors, unconnected to the featured countries. Besides the pretty food pictures, it has one of my pet peeves: photos of people and places without captions.

There is so much to enjoy about Share: The Cookbook That Celebrates Our Common Humanity. The recipes are delicious with simple and healthy ingredients. The stories of survival and successful mentoring made me want to learn more about Women For Women International. The collaboration of so many individuals dedicated to improving our world is truly inspiring.
