Celebrity Chefs Contribute Recipes to Aid Japan

Chef Masaharu Morimoto

Some of the world’s most esteemed culinary masters, including Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Michelin Star Chef Anito Lo, and Madonna’s personal chef Mayumi Nishimura, have teamed up with KeepRecipes.com founder Phil Michaelson to provide Japan-inspired recipes to help the American Red Cross with their relief efforts in Japan.  Check out the website www.donate.keeprecipes.com — where, until June 30, it will be possible to get a digital cookbook with 21 Japan-inspired recipes from an esteemed list of top chefs, for any donation made of $10 or more.

Michaelson put out the call to top foodies for help in the drive, and says, “The reception was overwhelming and I am honored to be able to offer this one-of-a-kind recipe collection in support of the American Red Cross.”

Recipes include:  Morimoto’s Braised Black Cod; Nishimura’s Wakame Soup with Snow Peas and Ginger;  and New York Times columnist and Best Selling author Mark Bittman’s Baked Mushroom-Sesame Rice Balls.
