Singapore Airlines raised Sin$1.418 million for Singapore’s Community Chest, a non-profit organisation that channels funds to assist the less advantaged in the community, at the Singapore Airlines ICP Cookbook Charity Gala Dinner last week.

 Singapore Airlines raised funds through the sale of the evening’s tables, a silent auction held during the course of the dinner and a raffle draw where the winner walked away with a pair of First Class tickets to any Singapore Airlines destination.

 The cookbook, Above and Beyond, features a collection of 50 recipes contributed by ten celebrated chefs who have served or are currently serving on the airline’s International Culinary Panel. All net proceeds, accumulated from its launch to the end of the year, will go to Community Chest, which will channel part of the donation to the Straits Times Pocket Money Fund and the Business Times Budding Artists Fund.

Above and Beyond: A Collection of Recipes from the Singapore Airlines International Culinary Panel, boasts a collection of 50 delectable recipes contributed by ten celebrated chefs from ten gourmet centrals, including:

• Georges Blanc from France
• Sanjeev Kapoor from India
• Sam Leong from Singapore
• Matt Moran from Australia
• Yoshihiro Murata from Japan
• Alfred Portale from the USA
• Gordon Ramsay from the UK
• Zhu Jun from China
• Nancy Oakes from the USA (retired from the ICP in 2008)
• Yeung Koon Yat from Hong Kong (retired from the ICP in 2008)

The culinary volume also includes chefs’ profiles for readers to find out more about each of the ten culinary stars’ achievements and kitchen philosophies, colour photographs to provide cooks with ideas on presentation and plating, menu suggestions to help home cooks put together a gourmet meal from starter to dessert with ease and finesse, and a glossary of ingredients, complete with pictures, so domestic cooks can learn more about the various ingredients used in the recipes.
