San Diego International Airport cooking up some treats

At least one of my New Year’s resolutions each year involves learning how to cook. It hasn’t worked quite yet, but as another fresh year rolls around, I’m willing to give it another try.

Maybe this will help.

More then 50 employees at San Diego International Airport (SAN) contributed around 125 recipes to the SAN Can Cook Cookbook.

The recipe list includes Pasta Sauce Fabulosa, Mum’s Old Fashioned Bread Pudding, and Green Chili Cheese Tamales, and reflects the diversity of the airport’s employees – Mexican, Indian, Italian, Filipino, and others.  There are even a few entries from celebrity chef Martin Yan (of Yan Can Cook fame), whose has a restaurant, Yan Can Asian Bistro & Bar, at the airport.

Even better, the proceeds from the cookbook go to the airport authority’s United Way Campaign.
