Announcing my 5th event with
a different try.

All of you will be wondering, why I have announced this event, even before the round-up of my ongoing event.

I have been blogging for the past 9 months. I have gone through and also participated in many events and round-ups. All the events, including mine were conducted for a get-together of ours, in cooking and sharing, in the blogging world. Since this is a festive season, I felt of doing something good to the needy through blogging.

All of us, would have helped the orphanages, with a breakfast, three-course-meal or sweets. Even poor people, have some members in their family to help them. But people in orphanages need help only from the society. If somebody reading this, have not done anything to the orphanages before, and now this message has triggered them to do something, I feel it as the success of this event.

Now the rules:

The main rule is : Collage the dish/dishes you have hosted alongwith a photo of orphans relishing your food, to a single photo and combine the method of preparation of each dish to a single post with sub-headings(if you have cooked on your own). If you have ordered the menu from a caterer, or sponsored, just send me the names of the dish, (alongwith a photo of the orphans enjoying your food). Feel free to post even if you have planned to host or distribute only one dish or sweet. The main purpose of this event is to instigate the awareness of hosting and serving the needy. And not our talent in cooking. So, it's enough even if you send a photo of the dishes hosted by you + a photo of the orphans relishing your food(which is a must). Got it?
HAPPY HOSTING and now the general rules:

As usual, only vegetarian recipes and no eggs please ( if you post a recipe)

Any bloggers and non- bloggers can participate.

Mail me the following details:

  18. Hi Shanthi, what a wonderful, unique event u are hosting. Many times while entertaining friends & family, I think of all the poor people who remain hungry for days or eat from trash cans, even die of hunger. I always tell my daughter (& myself)to be thankful for the food before us. We do anna-dana in one orphanage in Mumbai for her b'day every yr, but have never been there in person. Ur event inspires me. Keep up the good work.

  19. Hats off. continue ur good work
