“A Couple Cooks,” Sonja and Alex Overhiser, will be at the Market this Saturday from 9-12 a.m. to sign copies of their brand new cookbook, just released October 1st. The books are $20 each, with all proceeds going to programs run by the Center for Global Impact. Cash, check or credit card accepted.
Alex and Sonja visited Cambodia in March of this year to learn about the Culinary Training Center / Green Mango Cafe & Bakery, programs run by the Center for Global Impact. The programs are designed to benefit at-risk young women in Cambodia by providing vocational cooking and restaurant skills. They met the young women who work there and collected recipes. The book is based on the menu at the Green Mango Cafe & Bakery, so the recipes are in the style of what they serve there – Mexican, American, French, and Italian – as well as Cambodian! And the photography is gorgeous!
