Blasta Books is our sister project that's changing the way that cookbooks are published in order to make more room at the table.
Hardcover, small format and illustrated by Dublin artist Nicky Hooper, the cookbooks will be released four times a year as a quarterly periodical series.
Each volume is a standalone 72-page A5 cookbook, but as a collectible series they will also provide a more inclusive snapshot of Ireland’s modern and diverse food culture, from tacos to tapas, spice bags to sushi. They are little books with big voices.
At Nine Bean Rows Books we have been inspired by Seth Godin’s advice to ‘make things better by making better things’, so we will be donating 1% of the net profits from all sales of books and merchandise from now until the end of 2022 to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
So now when you support Nine Bean Rows and the Blasta Books project, you will also be helping UNHCR to protect people forced to flee their homes because of conflict and persecution. Together, we are all making more room at the table.
