Today, Microsoft China accepted the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the Microsoft Cookbook. The cookbook, created as a labor of love by one Microsoft couple, comprises recipes from Microsoft employees around the world. All proceeds go toward Seattle nonprofit FareStart, and to date the cookbook has raised more than $250,000 for the organization as part of Microsoft’s Employee Giving Program.
The recipe book also earned best Publisher/Printing and tied for best Charity/Fundraising cookbook in 2013. The award recognizes publications that increase knowledge and respect for food culture, while honoring those who “cook with words.”
