    2021 Rome AWAR cover cookbook

    AWAR's Roman Kitchen - Food and Memories

    Charity Cookbook from the members of the American Women’s Association of Rome

    This book aims to tell the story, through their experiences in their own Roman kitchens, of a group of adventurous, inquisitive, creative, active women from all over the world. It’s a story of identity and acceptance, of love and perseverance, of acculturation and nostalgia, of friendship, and of food. The idea to create a cookbook arose in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, while AWAR members were unable to gather in person to celebrate the group’s 65th anniversary. We asked for recipes - from anywhere - that members could cook in Rome. We also sought works of art and anecdotes, memories, stories, reflections, information on basic ingredients and other topics, and any personal thoughts that would shed light, through food, on our members' lives. We pledged, from the outset, to give part of any proceeds from member donations to Italian frontline health workers, who had bravely faced down the pandemic, first in northern Italy.

    The result is an eclectic cookbook for those with an international outlook, but a strong attachment to the food and culture of Italy. AWAR’s Roman Kitchen is available outside Italy in a digital, e-book format.

    AWAR will donate half of the proceeds from books ordered by FAWCO members to the FAWCO Target Project 2020-22: Safe Alternatives for Female Genital Mutilation Elimination, a project of the NGO Hope for Girls and Women Tanzania. Proceeds from the remaining half will continue to support AWAR Community Service efforts, as well as supplement the book’s production costs. When ordering please note in the comment box that it is a FAWCO order.

     AWC Ham Lets stay in cover

    Let’s Stay In

    Charity Cookbook by the American Women's Club of Hamburg

    The idea of a new American Women's Club of Hamburg (AWCH) cookbook came to light as measures of “social distancing“ from our friends and family were implemented to reduce the spread of COVID-19. All recipes in this cookbook are from our members and friends of AWCH. All profits from the sale will be donated to the 5th Hamburg Women’s Shelter e.V. (5. Hamburger Frauenhaus e.V.). The funds will be used to improve the health and well-being of the women and children who have found refuge from domestic violence in the shelter.
