The Christmas season is celebrated as a time of giving, and Kazuma Enterprises Limited, who are no strangers to giving, were recently involved in sponsoring the launch of a cookbook created by the Diplomatic Spouses Association (DSA) with proceeds going to charitable organisations in Lusaka.
The cookbook is entitled “a gastronomic tour of the world” and is filled with exciting recipes from many different cultures. The DSA ladies are themselves from different parts of the globe, but all currently live in Lusaka, Zambia. They have each contributed a special recipe from their country to create this cookbook!
The DSA is a group that was founded over 20 years ago by a group of dynamic spouses in Lusaka and is open to the wives or husbands of personnel in Zambia who are attached to Diplomatic Missions or the Expatriate Business Community. DSA is an independent, non-profit, non-political organization voluntarily run under the motto “Partners for Prosperity”. The group holds various fund raising events throughout the year and the proceeds are dispersed among the many charities it supports.
The launch of the cookbook was held at the Irish Ambassador’s home. All the ladies came out to celebrate over a delicious meal with some specially selected wines. Kazuma’s wine ambassador and sommelier Gabriel Salas from Concha y Toro, in Chile, paired some of the Kazuma wines especially for each meal in the cookbook. Kazuma also sponsored the wines for the launch.
The following DSA members helped with printing costs by personally sponsoring a page each: Ann Hogg, Annette Frazer, Branka Celeketic, Brenda Corbitt, Colleen Cerrutti, Deb Ferrnow, Enza Rizzo, Eva Schindling, Irene Cook, Irene Kwesiga, Janine Fryer, Jill Penny, Kala Lyengar, Kanaan Talwar, Lara Kvalsig, Marie Cotter, Nadia Graef, Refole Banda, Rita Mittal, Ruth Fode, Soraya King, Tabeth Gowero and Tina Kapur.
This fabulous book is printed by New Horizon Printing Press and will shortly be available in major bookshops in Zambia.
