Subject: AARPCV: Cookbook to support a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience
Dear RPCV’s: We need your help with our Peace Corps Cookbook.
Many of you have already heard of the efforts to establish a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience in Portland, Oregon. The Committee for a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience (CMPCE) is involved in these efforts and is currently seeking funding to proceed with the project. One of our ways to do this is to develop a cookbook made up of recipes from countries of service sent in by RPCV’s. Once we prepare this cookbook we will sell it and use any profits for the museum. Please help us with this goal. If you are not familiar with our work please look at our website for further information: www.peacecorpsmuseum.org
Part of what made your service in your host country special was the food you encountered. Share recipes for some of those special dishes with the rest of us so we can get a glimpse of your experience and share a bit of the culture of a different part of the world. We plan to compile a cookbook that will enable thousands of Americans to experience some of what you encountered; along with your stories telling about the role this food played in your experience of the host country. This cookbook, tentatively entitled A World of Food: the Peace Corps Experience, will then be published, and as mentioned above, the proceeds will benefit CMPCE's efforts to establish a Museum of the Peace Corps Experience.
Along with each recipe please share some background information so the reader will gain better understanding of the food item and its place in your experience. Please explain any uncommon ingredients and suggest how to obtain them. Be sure to give us your name, country and years of service. Also classify each dish as to type, e.g. appetizer, beverage, dessert, soup, main dish, main starch, vegetable, or side dish. Be clear about amounts, times and temperatures. If an ingredient is very difficult to obtain can you advise about a substitute or the impact of omitting it? By sending us this recipe you agree to permit us to use the information you send for the Museum cookbook at no charge. No personal information will be divulged to others for any other purpose.
Send your recipe and accompanying information to: pcmuseum@...
