This cookbook was mailed to 484 prisoners who submitted recipes for consideration. Here is what Amber says about working on this project.
“This cookbook was so much fun to put together! Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies and I loved getting to read all the inventive recipes submitted. Cooking in prison poses so many challenges and the individuals who submit recipes have come up with incredibly creative ways to put together amazing dishes despite the difficulties.” ~ Amber

Hey there, chefs!
I’m Amber, the student editor of this Cookbook, and I’m excited to share this collection of recipes with you! Thank you to all who submitted recipes. I’m amazed by your creativity, resourcefulness, and blending of bold flavors! I am a firm believer, as I’m sure many of you also are, that cooking nourishes not only the body, but the mind and soul as well. Sharing food is often seen as a symbol of kinship and connection. I thank you for inviting us all to your metaphorical table by sharing your recipes. Now let’s dig in!
