Dining at a Distance
A Pandemic Cookbook
by Nancy Thornton
All Book Profits go to Charity
This new cookbook, Dining at a Distance, came about on a whim.
One morning, not long after the city of Cuenca, Ecuador had shut down and locked up its citizens to keep them safe from the CoronaVirus, Nancy Thornton read a Facebook post of someone’s new favorite recipe. It struck her that a cookbook of Expat-approved recipes might be an excellent way to raise money for the many hungry children, women and men in Ecuador. The idea of this pandemic cookbook was born.
In a little over one month we gathered more than one hundred recipes from Expats in the Andes and along the coast of Ecuador. Friends in the USA also sent in recipes.
All ingredients are available in Ecuador. Many of the recipes have been tested to accommodate high altitudes. And if you’re a person with good taste, you’ll be delighted with your choices of main dishes, breads, desserts —even classic Ecuadorian dishes.
This is a community project, a venture made possible by kind-hearted Expats who want to help the people most in need in our adopted home. One hundred percent (100%) of the sales of this book will be donated to two non-profits working with those who are at risk and often hungry in Cuenca, Ecuador: Mujeres con Exito (Women with Success) and Hogar de Esperanza (House of Hope).
Thanks to all for sharing recipes, working on the cookbook and buying copies for personal use and gifts. A $10 donation gets you one copy at Dining at a Distance. Give as generously as you can. Buy copies for all your friends and family. And know that with each purchase you are helping those who are struggling during the pandemic.
