Right in time for stocking stuffing comes a local cookbook raising money for Anti-Hunger Coalition Timmins and the Multicultural Centre.
Coalition board member Betty Ann Horbul says “Taste of Timmins – Bon appétit” is also meant to raise awareness of the variety of cultures and cuisines in the city, especially for newcomers and the indigenous population.
“The difference though is when we asked for the recipes,” she explains, “we asked for the story behind the recipe and any pictures as well. It really is a very unique cookbook.”
The $20 cookbook will be launched Friday morning at the Timmins Museum, and be available at various places in South Porcupine and Timmins.
“Basically, what we were looking at trying to do is to just to make it available to people at a reasonable cost,” adds Horbul. “We’ve gotten requests from residents from out of town who want to purchase it.”
