Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Seeks Contributors to Cookbook Fundraising Project

The nonprofit Santa Barbara Culinary Arts announces a fundraising cookbook project using Santa Barbara County recipes from restaurants, caterers and fine-food purveyors.

The cookbook will celebrate the diversity and excellence of local cuisine and provide a guide to fine dining in the area. Interested participants can submit their recipes now through the end of July.

All proceeds will go toward the Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Scholarship in honor of Julia Child. This endowment fund provides annual scholarships to the Santa Barbara City College Culinary Arts program.

Since 2005, 10 $1,000 scholarships have been awarded to culinary students at SBCC, with two per year planned for the future. SBCA has also provided scholarships to Women’s Economic Ventures and contributed to the Children’s Creative Project and the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.

Photographer Linda Blue, who recently won the 2013 News Press Reader’s Choice Award for Photography, will donate her services to photograph recipes for those who do not have a print-ready image to accompany their recipe. Click here to visit her website.

Participants are asked to pre-pay for 10 cookbooks at $20 each. The cookbook will retail for $25. The $200 will not be due until the end of summer, and will go toward printing costs and a donation to the Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Scholarship in honor of Julia Child.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
