New recipe book hopes to raise S$650,000 for charity

A new recipe book with contributions from Singapore’s top leaders hopes to raise S$650,000 for needy, elderly patients at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

Launched on Thursday by Foreign Affairs and Law Minister K Shanmugam, ‘The World on Your Plate’ is no ordinary culinary project.

It is the first time diplomats in Singapore are coming together for charity.

The book contains 84 well-loved dishes from around the world, submitted by ambassadors and consuls based in Singapore.

Representing Singapore is a mee rebus recipe contributed by Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s family.

The foreword was penned by President Tony Tan Keng Yam.
