The book offers a unique collection of recipes n an East Meets West theme and is the result of the tremendous enthusiasm and generosity of its contributors. “East meets West” has been compiled by two British women, Barbara Jayson MBE and Jenny de Montfort, who met whilst living in Indonesia.  Barbara was responsible for establishing The Foundation for Mother and Child Health in Indonesia and was recently awarded her MBE for charitable work. Jenny was born in Sri Lanka and has kept up close links with the island. All profits from the sale of the book will go towards the long term rehabilitation of children and their parents affected by the tsunami.
