Home for the holidays: The East Village Community Cookbook is ready for pre-order

Need a last-minute gift idea? The East Village Community Cookbook is now available for pre-order.

As EVG's Stacie Joy first reported in August, the cookbook was the idea of three East Villagers who bonded during the pandemic — Will Kroeze, pastor at Trinity Lower East Side, Dan Hyatt, a middle school teacher, and Will Horowitz, a chef and author who co-founded Ducks Eatery and Harry & Ida's Meat and Supply Co. 

The final product includes more than 100 recipes from an array of local restaurants (C&B Café, Katz's, Nom Wah Tea Parlor, Russ & Daughters, SMØR, Superiority Burger, and Veselka, among many others) and residents (Alan Cumming and Richard Hell, to name two). 

Donations for the East Village Community Cookbook start at $30. Proceeds will benefit Trinity Lower East Side Services and Food for the Homeless (SAFH) and community fridge on Ninth Street and Avenue B. 

Per the organizers: "Each pre-order comes with a certificate of purchase to send as a quick holiday gift to a loved one!"

You can pre-order a copy here.

This is heartwarming on so many levels! I went to pre-order one but the link seems to be broken. I'll keep checking back, I'm sure it's just a bug.

Looking forward to seeing the recipes! Also, I really miss Ducks, please bring it back Will!!

Thanks, MrNiceGuy.

I triple-checked the links on Safari and Chrome and via MacBook Pro and iPhone... they are working for me.

You can order via the main site too:

Thanks Grieve! For some reason I can't access the site on my laptop, but I can on my phone. Either way, I was able to pre-order the book, I can't wait to get it.

Many thanks for the excellent work you do with the blog and for keeping the EV community that much closer!

Happy holidays,

Glad you got through, MrNiceGuy!

Thank you, and happy holidays to you too!

Just ordered two of these for my adult daughters as Christmas gifts. Born and raised in the EV, this will be a cool treat for them!
