Our Celebrity Charity Cookbook celebrates Nancy's love of food and friends and our appreciation for the work Community Living does in Mississauaga and across Canada.
In 1975, Community Living Mississauga printed a cookbook, featured on the right, that was often sold at church bazaars to raise funds for their various programs. This is our attempt to revive the theme, give back to Community Living and develop a cookbook that is delicious and entertaining to read. We got the name for our cookbook because we thought everyone who donated a recipe would be within six degrees of knowing Nancy and or Kevin Bacon.
176 pages of deliciousness, stories, pictures and recipe contributions from our family, friends, athletes, olympians, chefs, TV personalities and celebrities.
Including Hockey Night in Canada's Kelly Hrudey & Nick Kypreos, Hometown Hockey's Tara Slone, the fantastic Chelsea Clinton, CFL'ers and all round great guys Michael "Pinball" Clemons and Andre Durie, Roger Petersen your awesome host on Breakfast Television, Olympic Medalists Heather Moyse and Silken Laumann, and professional Chefs Susur Lee, Vikram Vij, Robert Irvine, Michael Smith, Geoff Webb, and many others.
Net proceeds from each cookbook sold will go to Community Living, starting in our home city of Mississauga.
We will calculate net proceeds is as follows, take the $30 selling price - less $1.43 of GST included in the $30 (it's PST free) leaves us with $28.57, less printing and credit card usage fees. As a reminder we are not charging for any of our time and any out of pocket expenses like this website.
Locally we will schedule pick up nights at The Crown and Lion (Nov. 25th) and The Brogue Irish Pub to keep our delivery costs for everyone to a minimum.
We are aiming to contribute $20.00 per cookbook sold as it appears printing cost will be in the $8 range. Therefore, in our first run of 1,000 we hope to be able to make a $20,000 donation to Community Living Mississauga :)
