Next time you're feeling peckish, just say "peko peko" (an onomatopoetic Japanese phrase that imitates the rumblings of a hungry stomach).

It's also the perfect name for the cookbook project spearheaded by food writer Stacie Billis when last March's 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami devastated Japan. In less than 3 months, Billis (you may know her as One Hungry Mama, of food52's Wildcard-winning Blueberry Almond Breakfast Polenta) led the charge in producing Peko Peko: Family-Friendly Japanese Recipes, a hopeful, beautiful cookbook to benefit disaster relief in Japan. 100% of the proceeds ($11.45 of every purchase) goes to GlobalGiving to support Japan. Every other penny goes to printing and shipping, nothing else.

We're also thrilled that two of the 50+ recipes in Peko Peko are favorites from right here at food52: timWuNotWoo's Misoyaki Roast Chicken with Shoyu Onion Sauce and Teri's Quick Cucumber and Shiso Pickles!
