This just in from Santa Barbara City College:

Santa Barbara, CA  — The non-profit Santa Barbara Culinary Arts announces a fund-raising cookbook project using Santa Barbara County recipes from restaurants, caterers and fine food purveyors. The cookbook will celebrate the diversity and excellence of our local cuisine and provide a guide to fine dining in our area. Interested participants can submit their recipes now through the end of July.

All proceeds will go towards the Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Scholarship in Honor of Julia Child.  This endowment fund provides annual scholarships to the Santa Barbara City College Culinary Arts program.

Since 2005, ten $1000 scholarships have been awarded to culinary students at SBCC, with 2 per year planned for the future.  SBCA has also provided scholarships to Women’s Economic Venture and contributed to the Children’s Creative Project and the FoodBank.

Photographer Linda Blue, who recently won the 2013 News Press Reader’s Choice Award for Photography, will donate her services to photograph recipes for those who do not have a print-ready image to accompany their recipe. Please visit her website:

 SBCA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the inspiration, education and celebration of culinary professionals and individuals who are passionate about the Culinary Arts. Please visit the SBCA website:

SBCA also holds events for the public, including fund-raising dinners prepared by local chefs using local, sustainably produced ingredients, such as the upcoming “Backyard Bounty” at the Rockwood Women’s Club.

ABOUT PARTICIPATION IN THE COOKBOOK: Participants are asked to pre-pay for 10 cookbooks at $20 each. The cookbook will retail for $25. The $200 will not be due until the end of summer and will go towards printing costs and a donation to the Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Scholarship in Honor of Julia Child..
