Dear IPAC Canada Colleagues,
The IPAC Canada Program and Projects committee is excited to announce that the IPAC Canada recipe book: “Our Go-To Recipes for 2020”, is complete. Thank you to all of you who were able to send in your go-to recipes. This book contains over 100 favourite recipes from members of 18 of our chapters, and even IPAC Canada staff!
We will be offering a soft-copy download of the recipe book for a donation. The money raised will go towards IPAC Canada initiatives, including adding to the new soon-to-be-announced CIC® Scholarship and compensating an IPAC Canada 2022 membership(s). The results of the 2021 scholarship donation and the name(s) of those who have won a complimentary 2022 membership will be announced in December 2021. To help support these initiatives, we are asking for a minimum $15.00 donation, if possible.
If there is enough interest, we may offer a hard copy version. Please let us know if you are interested in a hardcopy version and if you’d be willing to pay an extra cost for it.
Thank you again for all who supported this initiative, and happy cooking!
