If you’ve ever wondered what figures in the tech community are eating? Want to donate to charity? Well, with a purchase of a new ebook called “The Startup Chef” you can fulfill both of those desires.

Published and showcased via Leanpub, “The Startup Chef” currently sports 75 recipes from people all over the tech spectrum. It’s the work of YouTube’s Hunter Walk and ABC News’ Maya Baratz.

“What does the founder of the most popular blogging platform on the internet make for breakfast? What type of creative pastry do Randi Zuckerberg and her sister Donna whip up for their family during the holidays? It’s all in here, with their own personal stories and recipes, for you to make and enjoy (in a totally non-creepy, non-Single-White-Female sort of way).And of course it wouldn’t be a launch if there wasn’t that ‘one more thing’: all proceeds from the book will go to charities aiming to end hunger — ranging from feeding hungry children in the US to helping feed families severely affected by Hurricane Sandy,” they say.

Here are some recipes from some notable people that you’ll find in the ecookbook:

  • Double Marinated Tenderloin / Fillet of Beef by Daniel Ek, CEO Spotify
  • Porcini Mushroom Pasta Sauce by Soraya Darabi, Foodspotting
  • Mom Crowley’s Sausage Soup by Dennis Crowley, Foursquare
  • Eggnog Cinnamon Chip Scones by Donna & Randi Zuckerberg, Zuckerberg Media

They suggest that you pay $20 for the cookbook, but will accept $10. They say that the book will receive new recipes and updates as they come in, and you’ll receive all of those for free. You can sample the cookbook here.

    thats one way to handle your money, but that sounds a bit like a "2 wrongs make a right" plan of action. While tempting, I think I will stick to trying to control my spending and putting aside what I can for a rainy day. For me, it is often a matter of discipline. I try to wait until I have all, or most, of the money at my disposal before making a purchase. I dont like to rack up extra debt, especially for things that are "wants" and not "needs".
