Cookbook committee co-chairs carry on yet another food-centric conversation on the recipes featured in the book.

Thanks to Suzi Hanzel and Dorothy Kittaka, foodies everywhere will be able to enjoy a world of good recipes thanks to the brand new Taste of Sister Cities Cookbook.

And although this year's annual Sister Cities Gala will be held virtually on Saturday, April 24th to comply with safety guidelines, precluding the opportunity to enjoy the event's popular buffet of foods from all of Fort Wayne's Sister Cities, participants will receive a copy of the book as part of the online package.

For those unable to attend the virtual event, it will be available for purchase locally as well as online.

Besides featuring more than 125 recipes, the cookbook also highlights pictures and stories about each of the cities, their recipes and the contributors themselves. 

For a sneak peek at what Hanzel and Kittaka have got cooking and why, WBOI's Julia Meek invited the committee co-chair team into the studio to share their story of how food and friendship go hand in hand.

Find more information about the new Taste of Sister Cities Cookbook and this year's Gala at the Fort Wayne Sister Cities International website.
