AWGLR Cookbook cover

SEASON - A year of Cooking in Languedoc

Season costs €20 and can be purchased online from, see ‘Publications’.  The latest American Women’s Group’s (AWG) cookbook Season was launched in May, 2014. All 130 recipes in the book were contributed by AWG members and they appear under the season that best suits the ingredients. There are recipes for all occasions however celebratory or casual - hors d'oeuvres, starters, salads, main courses, desserts and some seasonal drinks.

Season is a cookbook for accomplished cooks as well as the not-so-experienced. It could successfully fight for space on a bookshop shelf in the 'Food & Drink' category. All the proceeds from the sales of Season will be donated to charity.

What is particularly special with Season is that every centime raised from the sale of this cookbook will go directly to three charitable organizations: The FAWCO Foundation - the philanthropic arm of the Federation of American Women’s Clubs Overseas; the Jeevika Trust - a charity that tackles the roots of poverty in Indian villages by revitalizing communities, often starting with projects related to nutrition that the women develop into businesses; and Resto Bébés Montpellier - a charity that benefits mothers and babies.
