Things are really cooking at Sweet. The lesbian luxury excursion company, known for their eco-friendly and community service-based travel, announced they are now accepting pre-orders for “The Sweet Cookbook” to benefit the Cozumel Humane Society (CHS).
The full-color, book bound volume features more than 125 recipes donated by Sweet’s patrons and their friends across the U.S. and Canada and includes a variety of appetizers, beverages, desserts, entrees, salads and side dishes, as well as a few pet-friendly surprises.
Several lesbian celebrities participated in the project, with Edie Carey, Catie Curtis, Traci Dinwiddie, Fortune Feimster, Melissa Ferrick, Chef Josie, Gabrielle Lindau, Bridget McManus, Jennie McNulty, Lori Michaels, Jackie Monahan and Suzanne Westenhoefer all donating recipes for the cause.
Pre-orders are now being accepted through Sweet’s online store and cookbooks will be shipped in fall 2012. All net proceeds from sales will be donated to CHS.
“This was a real labor of love by our Sweeties,” shared Sweet co-founder and CEO Shannon Wentworth. “I continue to be amazed by the generosity and creativity of our travelers in finding ways to serve the global community.”
Sweet first established a relationship with the Cozumel Humane Society during a September 2010 visit and plans to volunteer their services during a return trip in September 2012.
“We’ll also present a check to CHS based on pre-sales of ‘The Sweet Cookbook’ so that our furry friends may continue to be well fed and cared for long after we’ve departed,” explained Wenworth.
