A Fair Feast is a highly desirable cookbook, co-ordinated and compiled by Vicky Bhogal, and comprising 70 recipes donated from the top names within the food industry and beyond. Those who contributed include Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Sir Elton John, Minnie Driver, Ken Hom, Keith Floyd, Richard and Judy, Dido, Margaret Attwood, Delia Smith, Jemma Kidd and Sir Terence Conran.
An illustrated quote from each celebrity, introducing either their donated dish or the wider initiative and their support of it, prefaces every recipe.
As a result of publishing this book, author Bhogal was invited to visit Ghana to see the work of the Fairtrade Foundation. The Ghanaian women who she showed her book to found it most amusing – they never wrote down recipes as they learnt them all from their mothers!
Alongside the beautiful Fairtrade photographs small snippets of information are included to raise awareness of how fairer trade rules, more and better aid and the cancellation of Third World debts are needed to tackle poverty. The proceeds from the book will go towards promoting long-term food security and sustainable agriculture.
