Jesse Cool launches 'Share' cookbook

Restaurateur and author Jesse Ziff Cool and Women for Women International volunteer Lauri Pastrone will help launch "Share," the first recipe book from Women for Women International, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13, at Kepler's Books in Menlo Park.

Ms. Cool will prepare appetizers from the book. The recipes come from women living in war-torn countries, where Women for Women International operates, as well as from international chefs, such as Alice Waters and Maggie Beer, and humanitarians, such as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu.

"Share: The Cookbook that Celebrates our Common Humanity" sells for $40 and is published by Kyle Books. Kepler's is located at 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

The publisher says its profits from the sale of the book will support Women for Women International's farming and food-training initiatives, and will provide micro-financing in the eight countries and regions where the organization operates: Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan.
