Let’s Cooking – a new japanese cookbook in the works!!


My colleague Hana Dethlefsen is a Japanese cooking instructor, and is launching a Japanese home-cooking cookbook. She is intent on busting the myth that Japanese cooking is complicated and difficult, and has made it her mission to produce a cookbook that will get you (and me) cooking healthy, delicious and authentic Japanese food with minimal fuss.
She has already compiled, tested, and revised the recipes, and worked with professionals on the photography and the design. Now all she needs is the start-up funds required to print the book.
Please join me in supporting her crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo. Here’s how:
1. Go to http://igg.me/at/letscooking/x/3427853
2. Choose the incentive package that gets you the swag you want (including the cookbook itself!)
3. Donate using PayPal. PayPal is safe and simple.
1. Copy and paste this e-mail, or write a letter in your own words
2. Email at least 10 people you feel are likely to respond, and ask that they share the e-mail, too.
3. Paste a message on Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media platforms you’re a part of to let people know about the campaign (include the link!) and that you’ve supported it.
What’s Indiegogo and how does this work?
For those of you who haven’t heard of crowd funding before, here’s how it works.
Sites like Indiegogo, Kickstarter, and other crowd funding platforms are sites that let ordinary people fundraise money to start a project. Each project’s campaign runs for a limited amount of time, and tries to raise a goal amount within that time, and supporters can contribute funds online from anywhere in the world.
In exchange for donations, supporters can choose “perks” that are available for each donation level. If the campaign successfully reaches its goal by the deadline, then the campaign receives the funding, and supporters receive their “perks”. If the campaign is unsuccessful, then supporters never spend a penny and the campaign is back to square one.
If this campaign doesn’t reach its goal, then your card won’t be charged and Hana won’t receive any money. For you, there’s no risk. Then again, if the goal isn’t met, we won’t get a copy of the cookbook either! So to help me (and you!) please donate and share the campaign with as many people as possible!
What’s “Let’s Cooking”?
“Let’s Cooking” is a Japanese home cooking website, recipe column (and now book!) written by Hana Dethlefsen. You can see more of Hana’s work at her website letscooking.ca, or you can find her on her Let’s Cooking Facebook Page or follow her Twitter feed.

    Having read this I thought it was really informative.
    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both
    reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
