When it comes to food, we all have a story to tell. Food touches every aspect of our lives. Eat. Share. Connect. is a crowdsourced cook and story book highlighting people from around the globe. All profits go directly to the non-profit organization Bridging Gaps.

About 1.5 years ago, our team of passionate foodies went on a virtual journey, collecting local recipes and food stories from different corners of the world. 1.5 years later, the result is finally here: the Eat. Share. Connect. eBook

Bring Jamaica to your kitchen with Peter’s “Baked Yellow Yam Salad with Jerk Aioli”

One of the people you will meet in the eBook is Peter, the founder of Mission:FoodPossible, a hunger and food security charity in Jamaica. In his story, he discusses the question of who we are cooking for: “The culinary field is exploding at the same time that hunger is on the is it that more people are cooking while at the same time more people are starving? Who are we cooking for?” He shares how Mission:FoodPossible is working towards more food security and where his inspiration comes from.

Get the LemonAid Boys’ famous “Lemonade” recipe and try it at home Ayaan and Mikaeel – aka the LemonAid Boys – are two 8-year-old humanitarians who have dedicated their time to helping children and people suffering around the world. Through a lemonade stand, they raise funds to support charities fighting hunger. “The work we have done for Yemen is just the beginning for us, and we won't stop until we make a real change”, say the two boys. The eBook features their famous lemonade recipe.

Make Daniella’s “Nutritious Sorghum Pudding,” her specialty from Nigeria

Daniella is a Nigerian vegan health consultant passionate about animal rights. For the eBook, she shared a Sorghum-based recipe and explained why everyone should try it: “Sorghum Pudding is gluten-free, and it is packed with nutritious goodness, full of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. It is good for everyone.” Daniella is convinced that food is a healer, and we should eat to live.
