Want to cook like a Man Group executive? Now you can — and all in the name of charity.
The money management firm has published Man Cooker, a £10 ($13) charity cookbook in support of Room to Read, a global organization focusing on literacy and gender equality in education in low-income countries.
The cookbook holds 50 recipes by Man Group employees from around the world, as well as a few guest contributors, covering starters, main courses, desserts and treats. The foreword to the book was written by food writer and critic Tom Parker Bowles, whose mother, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, presents the winner of the Man Booker Prize, a prestigious literary award sponsored by the firm.
One of the cookbook favorites for Pensions & Investments' London bureau chief is Robyn Grew's Bolognese sauce. The four-hour cooking time is well worth it, and Ms. Grew writes the recipe is "also excellent for toning arm muscles." Ms. Grew is Man Group's chief administrative officer and general counsel.
All proceeds from the sales of the book go directly to Room to Read and will be matched by the Man Charitable Trust.
The book, which was produced internally, can be purchased by contacting Man Group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
