Meher Gandevia-Billimoria informs us about a great new book she authored as a fundraiser for an organization Centre For Advancement of Philanthropy

The book,CUISINE FOR A CAUSE is a unique cookbook that includes recipes of two kinds – the traditional gastronomic variety, and the ones that make up the philanthropic success stories that Parsis are equally renowned for.

In all, the book profiles 37 non-profit organisations which Parsis have founded, head, or are part of.

From noted dancers Shiamak Davar and Astad Deboo, to female philanthropists like Rati Forbes and Anu Aga who have showcased the human face of Indian corporate, and much-loved institutions like Sir Ratan Tata Trust (RTI) and Women’s India Trust, they all share their insights on giving and contribute favorite Parsi recipes.

Additionally, the book has a special treat for fans of the legendary Parsi ‘Lagan Nu Patru’ the wedding meal that owes its fame as much to the legions of skilled wedding caterers as to the delectable nature of Parsi food. It chronicles the life and times of Tanaz Godiwalla, Kaizad Patel and Kurush Dalal, three exemplars of this profession, and also gets them share their signature recipes.
