Some of the world’s most talented culinary masters, including Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Michelin Star Chef Anito Lo, and Madonna’s personal chef Mayumi Nishimura, have teamed up with KeepRecipes.com founder Phil Michaelson to provide Japanese recipes to help the American Red Cross with their relief efforts in Japan. The website www.donate.keeprecipes.com, which went live today, provides donors with a digital cookbook that includes 21 Japan-inspired recipes from an esteemed list of top chefs for any donation made of $10 or more.
Recipes will be featured from culinary icons like Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s (Braised Black Cod), Madonna’s personal macrobiotic chef Mayumi Nishimura (Wakame Soup with Snow Peas and Ginger), New York Times columnist and Best Selling author Mark Bittman (Baked Mushroom-Sesame Rice Balls) and
“The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen” author Eric Gower. KeepRecipes will donate $0.86 cents for every dollar of revenue generated through the sale of the “KeepRecipes for Recovery” digital cookbook sold from April 6th until June 30th to the American Red Cross. On the site, there will also be photos of final dishes, chef information, tips and other tidbits that are helpful in the kitchen.
