A cookbook on a mission! The Lunchbox Fund Cookbook by Mario Batali is a 100-copy limited edition, containing a selection of superchef Batali’s favorite recipes, cuisine from “Roma to Napoli” geared to the home cook. The volume is meticulously designed, lavishly illustrated with original linocuts by legendary pop artist Jim Dine, printed and bound by hand, signed and numbered, and put up for sale in a fund-raiser online auction. The cause is The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit dedicated to providing “a daily meal” for at-risk school children in South Africa’s poverty-stricken townships. The Batali & Dine cookbook is joined by other handmade books from an eclectic group of celebrity names like Sir Ben Kingsley, Michael Stipe, Hugh Masekela, Phillip Glass, Deepak Chopra, Salman Rushdie, and Sting. The online auction is running now through the end of the month—bidding for The Lunchfund Cookbook starts at $1,200.
