This Week's Dish: Stray Rescue Founder Releases Cookbook, Raises Support for STL's Homeless Animals
Stray Rescue of St. Louis’ founder, Randy Grim, has teamed up with the area’s top chefs and celebrities to create a cookbook titled, “Recipes To The Rescue.” Hitting shelves today, this is Grim’s second cookbook created with the goal to help the nonprofit’s mission to save abandoned, abused and neglected dogs and cats. Recipes come from notable area chefs such as Leon Crues of Wild Flower and Eric Kelly of Scape Bistro. Fox 2 News’ Meteorologist Chris Higgins even makes a contribution with a recipe for Catalina-Cranberry Chicken.
Grim will be selling and signing cookbooks at Wild Flower Restaurant on Nov. 6 from 4-6pm during its Very Important Pooches Party as well as at Dierbergs in Des Peres on Nov. 8 from 4-6pm. The book is available online for $21.95, at Stray Rescue’s Pine Street shelter and at select stores and businesses in the St. Louis area.
