The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope

WCK’s first ever cookbook—an Anthem Awards winner and New York Times bestseller—gathers recipes inspired by many of the places our Relief Team has cooked following disasters and other crises around the world, as well as sharing inspiring narratives from the chefs, volunteers, and communities we’ve met along the way. 

Each chapter in Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope reflects a World Central Kitchen value. “Urgency” focuses on food that can be eaten on the go, including the Lahmajoun Flatbread served after a devastating explosion rocked Beirut in 2020. In “Hope,” you’ll find soups, stews, and comforting meals like Ukrainian Borsch served to families living through an unthinkable invasion and Chicken Chili Verde prepared for firefighters on the frontlines in California.

Incredible WCK supporters have shared recipes too, like Breakfast Tacos from Michelle Obama and a Lemon Olive Oil Cake from Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex. Other contributors who have continually championed WCK’s work include Marcus Samuelsson, Ayesha Curry, Reem Assil, Brooke Williamson, Emeril Lagasse, Tyler Florence, Guy Fieri, Sanjeev Kapoor, and Eric Adjepong.

The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope is full of recipes created for home kitchens and inspirational stories from chefs and local cooks who have fed millions of people impacted by disasters around the world. These recipes and experiences highlight resilience, community, and above all, hope.

All author proceeds from the book will support WCK's emergency response efforts.
