Cook Book

This cookbook will hold a plethora of recipes from all over the world, and everyone and anyone is welcome to submit a recipe! Entrees, side dishes, salads, desserts, and everything in between! In these hard times we are living through, cooking can be therapeutic, and something fun the entire family can enjoy! What’s even better is that with this cookbook, you will be able to try new and different foods that you may have never thought you’d enjoy. Minority Essence invites you to celebrate cultures through a way we all love: food!


Step 1: Gather your favorite recipe(s); talk to your family to see if they would like to share any of their recipes! Also, spread the word about the cookbook! Encourage your friends, teachers, and those who are a part of the school community to participate!


Step 2: Make sure you have all the required information about your recipe. This includes the name of the recipe, a handwritten/typed copy of the recipe, the ingredients, measurements, preparation time, servings, allergy information, a photo of the finished dish, and the name of the person who is submitting the recipe. While this is optional, we love to hear any of your special stories with the dish and/or the historical background of the dish. A video of you preparing the dish is also needed if you are opting for Option 2 or 3 in Step 3.


Step 3:

  • Option 1: If you are submitting ONLY an e-recipe - Fill out the Google Form linked below:

  • Option 2: If you are submitting ONLY a video of the recipe being prepared - Fill out the Google Form linked below:

  • Option 3: you may submit BOTH an e-recipe and a video of that recipe being prepared (Options 1 AND 2). If you decide to do this, please make sure to complete BOTH Google Forms linked above.

  • IMPORTANT: Our project will be continuing into the 2021-2022 school year, so we have extended out deadline to next fall!


Step 4:  The final cookbook will be available on the BHS and Minority Essence websites in the fall. Be sure to check out all the other recipes in the cookbook and make them for yourselves or family! This is a great opportunity for you to show off your awesome cooking skills through the delicious recipes in the cookbook! If you do make a dish from the cookbook, we would love to see what you create by posting it on your social media, tagging @MinorityEssence on Twitter and @minorityessence_brunswick on Instagram!
