Hello hello! I’ve mentioned it in the past but the time is now here: The Nudie Foodies: Food Bloggers Peel for Japan cookbook is DONE and available for purchase. 100% of all profits of the cookbook goes directly to AmeriCares, a foundation that has a specific campaign earmarked to help the people of Japan who were victims of the earthquake and tsunami.
For those not in the know, The Nudie Foodies are group of food bloggers who banned together to help the Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims. Tongue firmly planted in cheek, all 18 of us have donated a recipe to the book, as well as tastefully photographed ourselves in various stages of undress, featuring our creations.
The complete list of Nudie Foodies is below and I highly recommend you check out each and everyone one them. Each and everyone of them donate their time and energy in creating amazingly brave and wonderful photos for this project, without any compensation. And each and everyone of them have amazing blogs.

As for my own final image that made it into the book, let’s just say it left my skin milky smooth and supple for days afterwards. And with gay pride coming up this weekend I feel like I should make some sort of pun about being the fruitiest thing in the bathtub full of fruit, but I’m going to refrain. Below is an outtake from the photoshoot that my partner AJ took. If you want to see the actual photo of me enjoying a slice of my Slow Roasted Strawberry Blood Orange Spiced Icebox Pie with Almond Scented Crust and White Chocolate Whipped Cream, you’ll have to just buy the book.
In the meanwhile, pop on over to this short little interview with our fearless leader Linda of Salty Seattle on the Today Show website, be sure to follow Nudie Foodies on Twitter and/or like Nudie Foodies on Facebook and check out the sneak peak preview of the book itself. Oh and buy the book. It’s for a good cause!
