A cookbook where recipes can be scaled up for cooking for large groups or scaled down for families, without compromising quality. 26 Projects presents, Volume: Cooking for a Community by Chef Sharon Steward. Sharon Steward at InterVarsity Pioneer Camp Manitoba has seen first hand what the impact of a healthful, balanced, home cooked menu can have on a community. Aligned with the camp ethos, every meal is eaten ‘family style’, which is one inspiration for the cookbook’s focus on meals prepared for the family and for the larger community – be it a menu for five people, 85 people, or more. All proceeds of the cookbook go to programming at InterVarsity Pioneer Camp Manitoba.
