I'm particularly excited to share this photography project, which has been in the making for the past few months. Marcia Georges of Il Centro restaurant has been working on her own cookbook, a project very close to her heart. Greek By Heritage, Italian By Heart is filled with recipes and stories from her childhood, her heritage and from her own restaurant (one of my absolute favorites).
I've been working closely with the talented guys from Generator to photograph Marcia's home cooked recipes. We're putting some finishing touches on the book, due for release very soon.
Not only is this a book filled with wonderful recipes, but it's for a very good cause. Tragically, Marcia lost her son to Cancer in 2009. Her ebook will be given away online, freely, with the request that if you like her recipes, you make a small donation to the Cancer and Bowel Research Trust. Her book will be embedded with direct links throughout which will take you to her donation page webpage.
Marcia is looking to raise $100,000, and with our support I know she can do it.
Shooting for a cook book has been a wonderful experience, one I hope to repeat soon.
