Bavarian Inn’s Dorothy Zehnder Donates Recipes to Help FEED Kids
Famous Moms and Daughters Join UN Program To Help Feed Hungry Children Worldwide
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Frankenmuth, Mich. – May 24, 2011 – Dorothy Zehnder, Bavarian Inn’s much beloved matriarch, is joining some of the country’s most notable women to provide recipes and raise funds to benefit the FEED Project.
Founded in 2006 by model and activist Lauren Bush, FEED has raised $6 million to feed children through the United Nations World Food Program’s School Feeding operations.
Dorothy joins Teddy Share founder Sharon Bush and daughter Ashley Bush, caterer and author Abigail Kirsch, Bigelow Teas President Cindi Bigelow, Tasty Brand co-founder Shannan Swanson, Chef and Author Sally Maraventano and others who have teamed up with KeepRecipes.com founder Phil Michaelson to provide recipes.
“I am honored to have my recipes included in a program dedicated to nourish our world’s children,” said Dorothy, 89. “Cooking with my own children is a treasured memory and a Zehnder family tradition.”
Beginning today, the website donate.keeprecipes.com will provide donors of $10 or more with a digital cookbook of recipes to make for kids or with kids, including a Curried Chicken Salad served in the White House, Chocolate Covered Bacon that is deceptively easy to make, ideas like Organic Pinwheels and Kabobs that make eating healthy, and decorative Butterfly Cupcakes.
Included on the website are two of Dorothy’s favorite sweet treats, her recipe for Baby Ruth Bars and for her Double Chocolate Zucchini Cake.
KeepRecipes has a commitment to raise funds for various charities throughout the year. Most recently, Phil Michaelson launched KeepRecipes for Recovery in April. That campaign helped raise money for the American Red Cross and its relief efforts in Japan and included recipes from culinary icons like Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Madonna's personal macrobiotic chef Mayumi Nishimura and Best Selling author Mark Bittman among others. That campaign has delivered over 5,000 recipes, raising $5,885 to date and will continue through June 30, 2011.
All donors of $10 or more will receive a digital cookbook online within minutes of their donation which is tax deductible according to IRS guidelines. For more information about FEED Projects, please visit www.feedprojects.org.
Dorothy recently released her own much anticipated book, “Come Cook With Me.” It is an 80-year collection of recipes, wisdom and stories from her life as a mother, wife and one of the most successful restaurateurs in Michigan history. Brimming with some 290 recipes, “Come Cook with Me” also features rich stories of Dorothy’s 60 years at the Bavarian Inn.
“Come Cook With Me” can be purchased for $24.99 at the Bavarian Inn’s Bakery and online through the Bavarian Inn website (www.bavarianinn.com).
