I can also contribute recipes, especially Gujarati dishes.

Count me in. You can pick your choice from my list of blogged recipes or if you have a specific recipe in mind, I can contribute that also for the project. I will do all I can to get the word out there.

Great cause, great idea and it's going to be our (foodbloggers) firstever cookbook.

We sincerely hope that together we can make a real positive difference in the lives of many underpriviledged children who need everyone's help.

I think this is a great idea and I would like to help.

I am a food writer and content consultant based in Mumbai and in the past year I have focused on collecting heirloom recipes. I will look through those, select some of the most interesting ones and send them in after I have asked permission from the ladies I got them from. I will also send in a recipe of my own.

I am also forwarding information on this as part of my new year mail to everyone I know and posting a link on my blog.

Additionally, I think I might be able to clear space in my calender to write/edit so please let me know if you would require help with that part of things.
